If you want your character to be shocked, you gotta edit it to make them bigger. To portray anger, make the eyes slanted from the top. You can add more to it if you edit the mouth as well to add to it. From my experience, the eyes and mouth are all you need to change to give a good emotion. I don't think I ever needed to change the body as well.
That pretty much sums it up. Enlarging thee sprites also gives you more space for editing as well.
