Stabbed in the Back!
Not really. Just felt like drawing that. Actually, I was looking for something to sketch on my lunch break and decided to pull up my copy of Facial Expressions for some inspiration. The doodle just happened like that. I stopped before I screwed it up because I really needed some reference for the foreshortening I wanted to do on the hand.
I'm really trying to get better with my expressions, but in this case I felt like I was drawing the reference. It's probably best to start with the character I want to draw and then find the expression. Like anything, it will get easier with time.
PS: If I could give one tip about "Facial Expressions", you might want to get the physical version. While I like the ability to zoom in on a picture, its just too slow when flipping through the images to find a head shape you like.
