Thanks again,

Lesson 11 by Nicolas

It's been a while since my last post, but I finally got around to do Lesson 11. It was the toughest one for me, and it took me a couple tries to get the details exactly right.

Lesson 11 by Patrick

this one was really fun, and not as complicated as I thought! I messed up with the width of the eyes on this one (the second try)...

...but I got the eyes right on the 1st try.

Lesson 11

Here's my mediocre attempt at Lessons 11. I see a lot of what I did wrong right away. Like the hair and the hat(the hat's horrible), and some other stuff is still off a bit like 'stache and mouth.
The hat sucks so bad... so terribly bad.

Lesson 10 by Nicolas

As of now, I've complete the first 10 lessons of "Cartoon Fundamentals." Trying to get the angle on the face right was a little hard. Critiques and tips are welcome.

Lesson 9 by Nicolas

Here's my shot at Lesson 9. I tried putting in a little more construction for this, especially in the face. Critiques and tips are welcome.
Here's also Lesson 8.

Lesson 8 by Nicolas

Drawing large seems to have its benefits. I've experimented once more with drawing a tad larger to take in the subtleties a little more, and not just capture the basic shape. This particular one took me practically no time at all to do. Critiques and tips are welcome.

lesson 10 by Patrick

I was really excited to do this one. It made for a great final egghead lesson. The angle of the eyes gave me the most trouble.

the nose needs to be bigger in the inking

Lesson 6 by Caleb

my final drawing


This is what my construction egg looked like before I drew the features. This time I used red for my construction lines and blue for features. These blank eggs are a good reference to have to draw other faces onto later.

This creature appeared the day after a Halloween party featuring a werewolf, Preston's eggman, and Snarf from Thundercats.

If you link to or follow my blog, I'll do the same to yours.

Hi everyone,

This will be the last lesson post for a couple of weeks. There has been a slight drop in member posting (including myself). I know the Fall brings many things; school, work, etc. Hopefully this break will give people a chance to catch up and some to start posting. For our regular posters, keep posting and practicing. Everyone should continue the comments and tips. Things are going to get tougher to draw and we need everyone along for the ride, no stragglers.

Your friend,

Lesson 7 by Nicolas (plus a Bugs Bunny drawing)

Lesson 6 was a little difficult, since it looks like a circle, but with lots of subtle nuances.  Critiques are welcome.

Plus I've attempted a Bugs Bunny pose from "Falling Hare," which you can critique on over at my blog
