Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Facial Expressions

Here is my conceptual illustration depicting the facial expressions of several of the students and the teacher. I am unsure on which direction to take the teacher, however, more reserved or dramatic...

Hi Annie, very nice sketches again! I like how you depicted the hair on the first teacher, drawing just the main strands. It gives it a very refreshing style. About that teacher, if I may suggest, it could be worth a try to see how the more reserved one would look like with a little bit more of those "OMG" eyes.

Love the style Annie. The dramatic lighting and shadows in the top image really helps to sell the character's emotion.

Speaking of emotion: Great work thus far!

I'm not sure either of which direction to go with the teacher. I think it would be comical to have the one to the left as that expression is more of a controlled "inner chaos and sheer anxiety" yet, outwardly, seems just startled.
God bless

Hehe- Thanks Frotze and Ramon! I see what you mean about the more controlled emotion, and I will definitely try to add the more surprised eyes onto the first teacher. I think that may be a better route to go, than the very overly dramatic one. The more I look at it, the more it reminds me of a 1950s horror poster.

I really love this 50's style !
Let's go, show us more !

Hey Annie, a really cool idea and great sketches, I liked a lot !! Like Gpepper says, its really nice the 50's style and very original approach! The expressions of the childs are great ( perhaps one of they with a more "devil" expression) and like the first expression of the teacher, as if as soon she was being reacted to which it happens, nice !
About your shades, i think the brightness spots of specular light over the faces are very strong and small creating the sensation of a plastic skin texture, only a comment Again great work!! and looking forward for more updates!!

Thanks everyone for your support! I am really glad you guys seem to like the style so far- Its a little different than what I usually do. I think I am going ahead with the first teacher design, with the more subtle surprised expression. Also, I am changing the small, bright highlights, based on Ferx's suggestion.

Thanks again everyone!

Line Art or Model: Backdrop

Hello everyone! Here is the backdrop of my scene. Its still pretty rough, and you loose a lot of detail in this lower res version, but here it is anyway!

Seeing it progress in bits and pieces, and each segment adds a whole stunning layer of detail to the finished piece. Love the shadows cast by the chairs, and the light colors in the windows. A great looking piece which I know will look even better as you add to it.

Also, I like it.
