with eyebrows!


A lot of us have drawn faces from time to time.
Have you noticed how eyebrows can change an expression?

This sketch above shows how a facial expression 
can look different by keeping the mouth and eyes 
the same and just changing the eyebrows.

How beautiful Audrey Hepburn was,
and was known for her heavy eyebrows.


Another woman known for her eyebrows:
Frida Kahlo


Frida, an artist herself, 
is a popular subject for many artists today.
Some are quite whimsical, and nobody ever forgets the eyebrows!

Disney's animated characters always have great eyebrows.

(The dogs have different personalities.
You can tell by. . . right . . . their eyebrows!)


Above, the diabolical Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians
and below the more recent animated characters
Rapunzel in Tangled and 
Tiana in The Princess and the Frog.

All have amazing eyebrows!
