Irritated

In an irritated expression, the eyelids droop, and the eyebrows either are horizontal or slant inward some. The eyes may be caught in midroll, as if the character is looking off to some distant spot trying to remain calm. The look is completed with a slightly pouted mouth.

You can show anger by slanting down the middle of the forehead. Notice the little buckle between the eyebrows. Clenched teeth also indicate anger. However, you do not need to draw individual teeth. Draw them as one shape.

When your character is surprised, his eyebrows are raised, his eyes widen and the irises appear smaller. An open mouth completes the picture.
