More Lesson 8-Playing With Proportions

Here's some more drawings from lesson 8. This time I tried changing the proportions of different body parts. I found changing the proportions to be a lot of fun. I was surprised by the results. A couple came out better than I thought they would.

I won't even compare this one to Preston Blair's, it's totally off. I'll draw it again.

I'm not particularlly happy with this one. The body looks stupid.
This one is way off too. The head is way too big and that really threw off the rest of the drawing.

I like the way this one turned out.

Lesson 8

Here's some drawings from lesson 8. I drew some stuff off a model sheet from King Sized Canary and an animation drawing from Slap Happy Lion along with stuff from the lesson. Both of those shorts are excellent examples of contrasting proportions. I'm going to keep drawing this lesson some more and I'll post those too.

Another Try At Lesson 6

Here's my second attempt at lesson 6. The lines on the comparison pics are hard to see. They didn't show up well when I scanned them. I'm going to keep working at this one, I found it to be quite difficult.

Lesson 7

This lesson was a lot of fun. I freeze framed some different shorts of Tom and Jerry, Porky, Elmer and for kicks good 'ol Private SNAFU. I'm not sure if it show but I feel that I'm getting better a keep the proportions right, the bodies aren't ending up too long or wide. I think once I get more comfortable drawing Jerry I'm going to try and animate a walk cycle with him.

Lesson 6

Here's a page of sketches from lesson 6. I found these incredibly hard to draw. Katie Rice's drawing have so many subtle curves to them. These were the best I could do. I'm definetly going to copy more or her drawings, it's great practice.

Lesson 5

Here's my first go at lesson 5. This was a lot of fun since I love Tom and Jerry, though I've rarely drawn them. I'm off to finish drawing more of this page and then onto some of those Clampett and Disney examples.

This one is off but it at least it follows the line of action

Finally, a little improvement. The arms are off and leg is too long but not bad.
