FACIAL EXPRESSIONS for CG ARTISTS

​Known as the “Face Doctor,” Faigin has been investigating the artistic depiction of facial expression for over four decades. His 1990 book, “The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression,” is the standard work on the subject, used throughout the CG industry, and consulted as reference for characters and creatures in movies like Shrek, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Harry Potter and Paddington Bear. 

As a facial expression expert, Faigin trains and consults with CG artists in media studios and creative agencies in North America and Europe), as well as teaches “Rigging Facial Expressions in Maya” in the Animation Department of the University of Washington. ​

“Gary portrayed each emotion in steadily increasing intensity, from subtle signs of the emotion to full-blown expressions.”
