Pose sorry:D...

I won't waste a post on just correcting my own mistake, so here's a sheet of a character of my own, I fooled around with last night, called Krapon!...:) Let me know what you think!

Thomas Hjorthaab stuff III

I especially like this post hereunder... I just love it!:)

Woody Woodpecker

I'm sorry to say I've never seen any of the shorts... I'll have to grab me that DVD box set! Until then here's my copies from a model sheet.

experimenting with gouache

I don't know if this is beyond the scope of this blog or not, but I just started playing around with gouache and this is my first experiment. If any of you have used it, I'd appreciate some suggestions/advice.

I've experimented alot lately with constructions, I'm trying to make as many lines as possible, connect, without killing the pose...

preston blair stuff

So John K commented on my last post with these drawings and said I needed to work on my perspective and proportions. I will soon be getting a new version of Photoshop Elements (I don't like Gimp and the old PE2 didn't work on my new laptop.) that should help with matching them up. But I thought I'd see what you guys noticed as the problem with these. i'm sure many of you have labored over these same drawings.

Slap Happy Lion

Took a new approach this time; I focused on 'energy' rather than 'accuracy'. Dunno if it was a good idea, but hey, I tried! :)

Cheers guys!

Mighty Mouse

Hey guys, it's good to be here! Look forward to drawing with y'all.

Okay, here's some Mighty Mouse studies I've done from an old model sheet - As you can see from they're far from perfect, so feel free to point out all the stuff I did wrong!

Welcome new members!

Feel free to start posting any construction or layout studies you are currently working on. There are many of us out there working to become better cartoonists, so why not have one centralized place where we can all learn from each other and create a community.

This blog was started about a year ago, and originally we were going through the Preston Blair book each week lesson-by-lesson starting with the eggheads. It was a lot of fun and we learned a lot, but we have since decided to open it up to studying what ever you want at your own pace. The key is being consistent and learning from mistakes.

More Dog

Attempt 2 at this. It's still a small drawing, kinda rushed too.
But it seems better than before. It feels more solid.
