Step 1


The neutral eye expression is the most commonly used expression I've seen being drawn in RMD. However, you can change the expression by adding a happy or sad mouth... but hey~ this guide is about eye expressions^^


Step 2


The happy expression is very simple. A smiling mouth will amplify the happy expression of these eyes.



Step 3

ANGRY expression

The angry expression expresses anger... or it could become a grin if paired with a smiling mouth...


Step 4

SAD/WORRIED expression



Step 5

SCARED expression

The small lines amplify the sadness of the expression... best paired with neutral mouth.



Step 6


yea... everyone experiences this emotion...


Step 7

GUILTY/SCARED expression

This becomes guilty expression when paired with a smiling mouth but scared if paired with a semi-open or sad mouth.


Step 8

SHOCKED expression

Maybe he/she saw a ghost. Best paired with a wide open mouth.


Step 9

FURIOUS expression

A very angry expression. Best paired with angry mouth...
