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.

More Doodles!

At left are a few quick sketches I made of a hunter caveman taken from a 1940 "Stone Age Cartoon." This one was directed by James (Shamus) Culhane.

I thought to triangular head was pretty amusing and I wanted to try drawing this character.

Below, we have the latest Father-Daughter doodles.

Mariel was obsessed with the idea of Mister Puppy Puppet and Mister Other Puppy going to the store with The Little Puppet Boy.

Of course, the puppet boy invariably goes on a rage-fueled rampage and starts throwing things. In the first drawing they are at Toys 'R' Us and he's bouncing a toy sailboat off of Mister Puppy's noggin.
In this sketch, they're at WAL*MART and Puppet Boy is going berserk in the paper towel aisle.
Well, Puppet Boys will be Puppet Boys, I guess.

Nice, I think the caveman came out really good. That head shape is real funny.

That's it - i'm calling the Annenburg Public Policy Center. Puppet Lad should be drawing epsom salt baths for the puppies and giving them group hugs, not throwing things at them!
Sorry, my grammaw snuck onto my computer while i wasn't looking. Haw! Haw! These are really funny. The dog on the bottom left has really good proportions and silhouette. Looks solid. He also looks surprised, confused and hurt, in spite of this being typically abusive behavior from the master. Always a comedic motherlode in my book.
Nicely done!

bardhol: The next set of Father-Daughter Doodles will feature Puppet Boy throwing 15 pound sacks of epsom salts athe the hapless Puppy Puppet Brothers.

Kevin: This guy looks like a triangular version of the "Killroy Was Here" fellow, don't you think?

Cool doodles. I like the felix head and those two bug heads in the second drawing, of course. Hats cocked to the side are the best!
