Facial emotional posing and transitions exercise. Intro to Acting 2018

This is my work in progress animation for the second assignment for Intro to Acting for the Spring Animation Collaborative 2018 session. The assignment is to animate 4-5 facial emotion poses, and transition between them. It is NOT an acting exercise, more of a technical exploration for the face and how all the parts move as an orchestra, with leading and following action, to create an organic, fleshy, elastic face. I added some head turns just to help with the facial pose, but did not super finesse the head turn and kept the transition timing between face poses kinda even to show the poses easier. Fun exercise, it is putting into action the lessons I learned so far about eyes and eyebrows! I chose happiness, anger, fear and sadness as my 4 emotions.
