Anime and cartoon art

Anime and emoji and anime style art is very effective at communicating human emotions.

How could that be? It looks so simple? Don't you need complexity to communicate?

These styles of art are what we call "iconic". They reduce the human face to it's most essential elements - the eyes, nose and mouth. Our brains are very sensitive to the relation of these elements.

To draw an accurate iconic face it's really important that we place the simple shapes accurately. Check out my ebook: How to Sketch Shapes to practice the basics.
