Character Project - Sidekick Expressions

These are the expressions for my sidekick character, these expressions rely more on the body to be expressive than a face because obviously he doesn't have a face. To that end the glass container and the brain do most of the heavy lifting; the liquid inside boils and becomes red when he is angry, goes blue when sad (also having the brain sink to the bottom in inactivity) and turns yellowy/green when he is curious or looking (along with having the brain getting close to the hand).
 

The arm with the hand on is also useful and helps to portray more human emotions like shaking his fist or holding it up to shield his non-existent eyes from the light. A thought I had was that the "brain" still thinks that part of it is human and tries to move and act in a human way.
