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.

What's Up, "Doc?"

Roland "Doc" Crandall, that is! In honor of not scoring that Popeye DVD box set last night, I pulled out my copy of Leslie Carbaga's "The Fleischer Story" and tried copying a pose from the first-ever Popeye model sheet.

It's a very strange "balloon" construction, as seen on the left. Using these ovals, I then worked at drawing a finished figure, on the right.

My little daughter's "My Little Pony" fixation continues! We did a brief water color session last night, so I did this weird pony for her. Looks like a development sketch from the new John Water's My Little Pony cartoon show!
