2 legged character construction

Heres what I did for lesson 4 on the cirriculum blog, we had to copy and draw 2-legged characters with pear shaped bodies. I hope that I followed the line of action and proportions correctly for these ones!

Squash and Stretch methods

I should of posted this a long time ago haha! but heres a lesson that I have worked on. I was learning how to stretch the crap out of cartoon heads, and they really relate to how our faces work in reality. When you smile your cheek muscle squishes along with it, and when you frown those face muscles stretch downwards. Just like real life!

proportion lesson

Well I have been looking at John's blog again and here is a section all about proportions which happens to be the third lesson on his curriculum site on drawing fundamentals. He said that proportions of a drawing is what makes the cartoon look the way it does. So I grabbed my drawing and preston's original drawing and I compared mine to his. Now I know that each time I look at a drawing I copy from, I would check the proportions and write down my mistakes and then correct them every single time.
