 Answering part (c) of the above question


See, how easy it was to make the dreaded devil laugh. Or, do you find it tough? Let's sort this out. I'll make it very simple for you to understand:

If you pay attention, the outline of the devil's face is the same in all the 5 frames. The placement of the eyes, nose, lips also does not change. So, to answer such a question you'll need 2 important skills

  1. Good Drawing Skills - That's a prerequisit
  2. Good Observation of Human Facial Expressions - This is why I emphasize on the importance of observation and memory drawing while practicing human figures or sketching in general. You can read more on why Observation skills are Important, if you are preparing for NID? To learn various human facial expressions, you can take help from the video pack: Drawing Human Anatomy

Note: The above question is from NID Animation Design Paper.
