That is a cool and useful site, but in my opinion I found alot of the facial expresions to be "fake" You know, like someone trying to hard. For instance the "smile" and the "laughter" one were very fake to me.

Good stuff though for muscle study :)

I like the facial expession web site, except for the pleasure pose.

For this thread:
I love gorillaz. They have been getting way better.

I loved the first couple of vids before they started putting those real people in. Spoilt the mood entirely:)

I'm really glad that Jamie Hewlett won that award, I have loved his artwork and humour since he started drawing Tank Girl in '87 (or was it '88?)...

I have liked Gorillaz for quite awhile...and not just because of their awesome animated videos. I like listening to "Demon Days" now while I work on stuff. They're certainly in a class by themselves musically, and in terms of the animation. And I agree, the onstage stuff isn't nearly as good as their actual music videos. There was a rumor a few years back about the possibility of a Gorillaz movie being made...which I think is a fabulous idea because of the way their albums flow...they tell a story. Even "Clint Eastwood" had a great story, and the video was great too in terms of progressing with a story. It'd be just plain awesome if they came up with an album and did a whole animated production of the entire album, as a story, I guess it'd be a musical! :)
