CARTOONS...and caricatures...






Well, I seem to be over my caricature kick for the time being. Thought I'd share some more cartoony type drawings. The first four are studies I did from Milton Steins Supermouse comic. I think they're from a Jim Tyer issue? The artwork in those comics is so amazing and these studies don't do them justice. Everything is so solid, round and organic with appealing shapes, expressions, and all around excellent drafstmanship. Great source of education in those comics. The last pic is an animation drawing for a cartoon I've been developing for Cartoon Retro called Rufus and Horny. Pretty slow going on that project but I have a ton of stuff stockpiled and will hopefully have some of it posted on Shanes site in the not too distant future.
