Giving dimension to my characters

I worked for a while this evening on Isaac Sr., trying to take the drawing of him from the very two dimension comic face looking straight on, to be able to move him around in space to seem three-dimensional while still retaining the cartoony look of the character. It sure helped to have the maquette I made a while back!

Now the task at hand is to figure out a sequence of key poses and expressions for his face that tell the story of him going from reticence and apprehension to resignation and acquiescence on the “cure.”  I have a nice sequence in my storyboard, but the key thing will be not to run it too quickly!
