Finding Reference Pictures



  • Where do you go to find good reference of authentic facial expressions?

    I need a picture (or several) of a terrified toddler who's not screaming or sobbing (tear stains cheeks would be fine). I have no idea where to find that. A thought that came to mind would be to look in news stories or horror movies or something, but where do I even start?!



  • @Debra-Garcia Pinterest is always a good place to start, and that can bring you anywhere. You can try YouTube too for that specific query. Iā€™m sure there are plenty of people who have filmed their child crying and uploaded it to the internet.



  • Pinterest is good or if you can think of a movie that has a similar theme, movies I find are a great resource.

    Or for a terrified expression and your having trouble finding one, use a mirror to sketch your own expression and then use that sketch as notes and apply that to a smaller toddler character.

    Or google baby memes šŸ™‚
