Doodles and other crap

Just thought I'd upload some of my doodles and drawings from a while back.

most of these are from after I discovered the Preston Blair method, so they at least have some principals, or misunderstandings of them...


anyways, here they are.




My semi-satire on the zany and cartoony character arcs of Bone. Not finished, but you get the idea.




Just a couple of doodles that I thought were interesting. Don't ask me what they are.




My exaggerated take on the generic Preston Blair cartoon hand. thought it demonstrated an understanding of some of the principals.




A piece from a story I was working on based off a sound clip from a short film about about Killer Furnature. Here's the film (which I thought was a big letdown given all the effort I put into creating my own version of it). http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/insideindies/shortsfest/furniture.html




Something I drew after... well, it speaks for itself.


















The following images contain drawings of
insincere corporate cartoon lies, probably begrudgingly designed by ether Lynn Naylor or Ken Boyer. (and yet I still like them)

















My (probably failed) attempt at giving this character a sort of lively Clampett appeal.



Not much to say here, it's disjointed, the proportions are off, and I used a freaking anime symbol, but I still think there's something appealing about it, mostly in the head. (or in my head)












I'll post some of my actual Cartoon School lessons in a while. I just thought I'd post some of my own stuff first to see if I had applied any of the principals to them.


Feel free to tear these apart. I've got little respect for these drawings, and would love to hear what I'm doing wrong.

So far looking better then last i saw yas. It looks mostly like you're still copying poses from what you see which isn't bad but that's how you gotta start before you know where to go next. Your doodles seem the strongest here, as though you're not trying to achieve any desired expression or pose and they seem the purest of your talent.

Anyway keep working at it, looking great so far. it's a good sign to see improvement.

Very nice (In my very uneducated opinions). I love top drawing and that hand looks really nice too!

Keep it up.
