Image description

The image shows the face of a person who expresses the emotion called anger. This emotional state is reflected on the outside, through different facial expressions. There are forty two individual muscles in the face, that are activated by the respective emotion, and impacts facial expressions on the facial elements: forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, nose, cheeks, lips, chin.

The face is oval, rendered blank, outlined, with a broad forehead and a square jaw. The wide ears, on either side of the edge of the face, are rendered as two vertically elongated ovals and cut by a curved line at the top, marking the earlobe. The nose, in the center of the face, is long and ends at the base, above the lips, with a convex or curvy tip with wide nostrils, on either side.

The eyebrows under the forehead are rendered as two sloping lines, curved towards the nose, their outer corners being raised at the level of the temples, and shown embossed. Face temples are the small flat areas that sit at the edge of the eyebrows. The eyes are shown as two blank horizontal ovals, in the center of which is the eyeball highlighted by a thickened circle.

The mouth under the nose has the upper and lower lips closed. The upper lip is rendered by a thinner and embossed line. The lower lip is more prominent, convex and rendered by a blank semicircle, with the curved edge at the bottom.

The hair on the head is short, starting from the upper edge of the forehead, and on either side it frames the face above the ears, left and right, being rendered by the texture of broken, horizontal and parallel lines.

In case of anger, the forehead is intensely wrinkled, especially in the central point between the eyebrows, above the nose. This wrinkle is shown by five short, curved lines at the bottom of the forehead, between the eyebrows.

The eyebrows are raised towards the temples and lowered with the corners arched towards the nose, representing a frown. The eyes are slightly narrowed by the bags below them which become more prominent. This due to the mild swelling, the skin of the cheeks being drawn up the eyes by the muscles below them.

The mouth has the lips sealed together unevenly, so that the upper lip is covered more by the lower lip that is bulging outwards. The lower lip looks bigger and fuller, due to the muscles under it, from the chin, which push it further out. The chin is wrinkled by the muscles, the skin being pulled upwards, under the lower lip. This is noticed from another crease, marked with a curved line under the mouth.

The mouth is closed, and the left and right corners of the mouth are slightly lowered here, framed by creases rendered by a curved line to the right and left of the corners of the mouth. This is due to the skin stretched outwards and pulled up to the cheekbones.
