"Our Gang" Studies cont.

Continuing the study from last post, I decided to make the panel on a 9" x 12" sheet of bristol.

Found this one to be the closest to the original's proportions. Roughly started to tie it down with a 2B pencil.

I then started to clean up the roughs. I also wanted to separate the characters from the background (kinda like I'm animating it).

Inked these on the opposite side.

My inks could be a little more careful. I was a little tired when I got to this point so I may just redo them. Still, lots of fun to work on! :)

"Our Gang" Studies

Found a favorite panel from the first volume of Walt Kelly's "Our Gang" and started copying it.

First, I loosely sketched the overall layout, then started focusing on particular details, like the characters themselves.

Took me a few days since I don't have a whole lot of free time, although I may try to clean these up. It was a fun project to work on.

Just some sketches.

Loose sketches from my lunch break at work. Coolest thing is that there's a lounge singer at the Portland International Airport! :)

Forgot to add these, too! Zoiks! Anyway, drawings of vultures.

Drawing shoes.

Part of this is for a freelance job that I may be getting soon. I'm also trying to study clothes a little more.

Practicing backgrounds.

Need to work on this a bit since I mostly do characters. The screenshot is from Disney's Home on the Range, downloaded from the Animation Background Blog.

More Caricatures!

Some sketches I did a month ago. Can't believe I never posted these! :-P

Caricatures done while chillin' at Lloyd Center.

Cow Studies

Did a study from Kevin Langley's awesome blog. This cow is from Tex Avery's "The Farm of Tomorrow".

Here's the screen shot:
