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.

No Cigar!

One of my faithful blog visitors, lee, said she'd like to see me do more hands...

This holding-a-cigar drawing always looked awkward to me in the Blair book. My trying to draw it was even more awkward! Yeesh!

Well, there you go.

Good on you Craig!

Like you, I thought some of the Blair hands looked "off" until I tried drawing them myself and realized how good they actually were!

(I also photographed some hands in some lovely poses and traced over them. It's funny how "off" real life can be from the image in one's head!)

I think you're doing great!

Good job, the first one came out great. The only thing I noticed on it was that the middle finger is a little long and thin. I think you're doing great at these hand studies.

Well, gosh, thanks, guys!

I'm going to be on vacation and while I may be able to draw, I won't be able to scan & post until July 9th.

I'll be around, though. So see you then!
