Drawing Portraits Wear Emotions

00-Benyarts-Drawing-Portraits-www-designstack-co
If it wasn't so long, the entire title would read: "Pencil drawings of portraits that wear emotions on their faces".
Expressions, play a big part in the works of artist Benyarts. The titles below, are not a roadmap to emotions, they are just titles I have given them. This is a small selection of Benyarts' work, just hints at how varied and complex these facial articulations can be. To learn and understand them, is something that requires time and observation. The payback for the effort is simple, it gives you a true insight, to a non verbal and often subconscious, means of expression.  This can tell you what the person is experiencing, without them having to utter a word. These expressions can be manipulated, with some people being better at it than others, increasing even more, the difficulty factor of understanding them. All this in a simple smile, a frown, or a fixed stare down...
