The power of expression

We are not just carefully placed features in a anatomically correct places -- the power of expression is such, that we tend to make our "statements" unconsciously...for example, women may pucker their lips and raise the brows...on the contrary, mens brows will go lower and there's and unconcious frown(in order to look manly and tough, I guess). Charcoal is a powerful medium to express that subtle emotion, and when should you notice that emotion? Right away, or it will be lost in translation. First features that we notice: the nose, the eyes, the correllation to the mouth. For the sake of excercise, ask a person to completely relax their features, and THEN pose. The difference is your expression, and it will get lost, when the model gets tired.
