Two Sketches

More in the AM, but just in case you stop by before I get back, here are my first two sketches, copied, but not traced, from pictures I found in a how-to book on cartooning. I'm not perfect, but I do like these a lot:

Scott, those are very good! I'm impressed. My, aren't you a well of creativity?

So your son is interested in drawing cartoons, that's cool. You may have a future Charles Schutlz(he's my fav) on your hands. Good luck with both of your endeavors.

Aww! Those are awesome!! Good job. I shall call you Da Vinci! Are you taking requests? :P

Well done! I'm assuming you had some drawing talent before picking up that book, right? I can barely draw a realistic stick figure.

Never type and hold a cat in your lap at the same time (snicker)

My son loves to learn how to draw comic book characters and I bought him a couple how-to books on it.

I specialize in fantasy and nature theme artwork. My fav medium is Prisma Color pencils and pastels, both pencil and chalk.

Not too bad. I piddled (is that a word?) around with sketching when I was a kid, had a couple of books and even took some classes with pastel chalks. Now my hubby is the artsy one in the family.

Nice!! Cartooning is very different to other types of sketching I think?

Man.

Those are good!

Keep it up!

All, thanks for the compliments. I used to draw when I was a kid, and haven't given it a serious thought since. I never thought I could draw anything even remotely similar to a real cartoon character, so I was a little surprised. It's all really simple if you follow the advice of drawing the basic shapes then fill in details.

Bailey Stewart said...

Scott - don't be modest - it isn't simple. I've picked up those how to draw cartoon character books and it isn't that easy. I can't do it.

Kathleen said...

Not perfect, yeah, whatever. I can't even draw a decent stick figure!!! Most impressive, Sir Scott.

Nice, Scott! You are one talented dude, my friend!

Scott said...

That means something coming from such an accomplished artist as yourself Mr. Schprock. I loved your cartoon clown.
