I love creating characters, giving them personality and having fun with it.
I have only studied basic animation (using Flash programs etc). It is something I would consider exploring more, as I took a class in university that only scratched the surface of basic animation.
One of the assignments was to create a character and animate him walking. I think I had more fun creating/designing the character than the animation (which was OK too).
Out of curiosity I looked up mouth expressions for animated dialogue, and tried out some facial expressions for “Ned” (I think that’s what I’ll call him). I based the mouth movements on this image below (I don’t have a source for it sorry).
I saved my character and all the different mouths as well. Then I decided to get creative and use the expressions to make a silly little comic. Or montage.
