Drawing cartoons is fun.
Key insights from today:
1. Lines and shapes are the basis.
Practise drawing different types of lines confidently. With shapes, especially facial shapes, loosen up your hand before drawing.
2. Second time is the charm.
If I sketch out with pencil first, the second time around is always a lot better.
Mainly focus on eyes and mouth.
Motion lines and words make the drawings pop.
Humour is king.
First 3 screenshots you can see I used pencil to do rough sketches first. Sometimes the sharpie version is quite different from the original. Let's see how long it would take me to draw decisively in one go :P
Here are the cleaned up version, only showing the finished drawing (except for one I forgot to switch layers).
