The Man from E.G.G.

A place to put my time-wasting doodles, based upon the exercises outlined in the "How To Draw Animated Cartoons" book by Preston Blair.

Oh, Man...

Wow. Oof. Wait a sec. Oh, man, I just got the wind knocked outta me. Huff Puff.

Did I get sucker-punched by this lesson! Not much to say, except I have a whole, long ways to go before I get off this page. These lessons will undoubtedly come back to haunt me should I ever seek public office. Well, let's see Karl Rove draw these stinkin' circles!

I appreciate your kind words, but, WOWSER, I can't get a handle on this circle-based construction stuff!

But, you know me, I'll plow it into the ground, reach some level of not-quite-there competency and move on.

(Really, I needed a boost - thanks!)

I enjoy the joi de vive inherent in your drawings -- a certain kind of elvin mischief and whimsicality -- even when the characters are experiencing their own demise by hanging, or wielding hypodermics full of potassium chloride. "Hey!! No fair!(X3)" Squealed with the ardor of a child who has just realized the exact extent of his patient's duplicity -- I love it!
As for the dogs, really try to loosen up! These are getting better but I'll tell you -- the drawings in the book are about 1,000 times harder (to me anyway) than the ones on the ASIFA blog. I couldn't say why, except that maybe Preston was an older and more advanced cartoonist by the time he did them.(?)
