The Facial Field Guide by Liquidsilk The Facial Field Guide by Liquidsilk
Dear god, this was supposed to be a bit of fun twiddling with the Gmod face poser. Two days and one of those Asperger's expression charts later, and just see how it all turned out.

P.S. I could reel off a mile-long list of the things I love about Fortress's character design, but the latest addition has got to be their wonderfully irregular teeth.

I'm sorry, but the last expression is more like a "Rape face medic" xD

Schwanwald Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2013
I love all the faces Medic makes. He has such an expressive face. And those descriptions make it ten times more hilarious. Good work!
Hiromi5 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013
Still cute in all expressions! Love the speechless medic!

This a great array pf expressions... the aggressive face makes babies cry I think...
dracoven Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012
Ah, I hope I'm not the only one that got the "Joseph Mengele" title?
Famous Nazi doctor, I actually did a bit of research on him.

Infamous, you mean.

Is their a way were you can put the preset's for face poser? You did a really good job.
wowgypsy Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
I love aggressive medic. His canines are lovely :) If you don't mind, I might actually use this for a reference ^^ It's a good way for me to correctly draw his face
SapphireBlazer Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I like the indifferent medic =3
rctmnt Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Speechless is my favorite one, it catches his personality nicely, it's also hilarious XD
spockck Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011
aggressive is my favorite
rctmnt Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
He looks like he's going to attack at any second, on aggressive, lol
Dgs-Krieger Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
I agree with you. The happy medic is only for novice medics :)
Schwanwald Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2013
I think it's his expression when he's no longer on fire because his Heavy gave him a sandvich.
Team-Friction Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011
Nonchalant Medic can't actually be proven. Our Medic whistles while she works sometimes.

And by work I mean ruining a Spy's life in a very red fashion.

My first time as a Medic (true story):
*Stays behind a Heavy to heal him*
*I get chased away from my Heavy by Two Enemy Pryos and an Enemy Soldier being healed by his Medic*
D:> Mein Heavy!
*Heavy dies*
*I run around like a chicken without it's head, shooting things with my Syringe Gun*
*I find my Heavy after about 3 minutes and he hits my over the head and walks away*
D> </3
*I get a headshot by the BLU sniper*

This makes yet another addition to the list of reasons to get GMod.
offrecord Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011
Though I'm very new to TF2 fandom, this guide is hilariously adorable and so true to me. :heart: Indeed my Medic is always hidden behind someone and ready to run off, so incompetent. lol
Uh here's a maybe brusque request, would you mind me to translate this guide to Chinese, for sharing with my TF2 friends in Taiwan? I'll mark where's the source from. :blushes:
Liquidsilk Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011
By all means!
offrecord Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011
Thank you!:love: And here's the translation version if you need anything to check: [link]

bluehentrooper Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010
Aggressive Medic makes me immensely happy. Thanks for going through all that hard work.
Eat-me-death Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010
It's nice and all that, but you forgot just one face, this face...:iconmedicrapefaceplz:

All rape faces aside, this is a very nice list.
WingedMidnight88 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
That's great! The medic is my favorite class! No 'clippage' either like some I've seen.
SaturnBallad Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2010
His expressions are so cute. *feels weird for saying that* XD
Kay-Ember Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They all make me squee! :meow:
Aurora-Storm Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Oh wow, I was wondering what wonderful person compiled this most comprehensive chart of his expressions.
I found a link in the comments to a Sniper's Field Guide. Were there any others charts you have graced us with that I missed out on?
"Indifferent" Medic is spot on, by the way. :]
ryotsuru--daosu- Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2009
I don't think someone with such a sense of humour should be allowed near Gmod.

My sides hurt.

Also, it's a relief to know I'm not the only person whose first thoughts about the Medic included "Clearly a war criminal," "Possibly Joseph Mengele" and "Definitely made of awesome," although something tells me that those thoughts do not belong in the same nanosecond. Perhaps they should be conquered and divvied up for their own, and others', safety.
SophiaDragonMaster Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
These expressions are wonderful. I haven't try the TF2 face poser for now, but you do it very well I think. I can totally see myself making those faces IRL when I'll play medic in TF2 :XD:
Editor-San Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009
I wish I had the patience to pull something like this off in Gmod; I'm aware it's about a year old now give or take but if I were in your position I'd be having flashbacks of the traumatic experiance of one eye refusing to do as it's told.

I'm glad you pointed out the teeth thing - as I hadn't really given them a second glance before. I salute Valve, and I salute you for throwing this and the ones for the other classes I've spotted lurking about in other comments.
Liquidsilk Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2009
Gmod is the perfect blend of brainless clickety-work and insane programming problems. After the third hour of a leg refusing to bend at a perfectly human angle working with it becomes a fierce battle between human and computer which the flesh never wins.

I'm amazed I ever got anything done in Gmod.
scythepuppet Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Compared to the nightmare masks that represents an average user's Gmod faces, yours are downright appealing.

I think my favorite is the "speechless" face, one I can imagine for only the briefest of moments before the Medic starts strangling someone.

This, of course, is based on my own experience as a medic, and my inherent love of doctors strangling people.
Liquidsilk Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009
Subtlety is the name of my game. And blind Medic-rage, of course.
scythepuppet Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey, armed with the Blutsauger the medic can outgun pyros and scouts. Subtlety no longer need apply.

(Although it's helpful)
Ikimono1 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2009
bullshit, that last one is me all the time as a defensive medic when my Kritizkrieg is charged ;D
Liquidsilk Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2009
I may or may not silently pump my fist in the air whenever I unleash a kritz.
Ikimono1 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2009
I dance in my chair and maniacally laugh, this includes the clawing hands turned upwards *evil doctor pose*
