Hey john, not sure if its too late to run the gauntlet here, but I'd really appreciate it if you took a gander at my work. Assignment 1 & 2 are finished, with assignment 3 to be started in a day or two.

2011-12-04T12:15:04.704-08:00

Hello John. I was curious as to how an artist can go about getting an interview with a studio for animation. I have been drawing cartoons since I was 12 using most of these principles. I had an animation "how to", but I cant remember if it was this book or not. The book had a lot of the same principles, I remember, and it taught me a lot. Since then I spent many years doing graffiti art

I know my odds of receiving feedback at this point dwindle, but just in case, Here's what I've got to turn in so far after lesson 1, John.

Thanks for the lessons! They're saving aspiring cartoonists like me thousands, John.

Hi John
Just found out about your cartoon college so I decided to join in instantly. Ive started uploading part of the lesson already and I'm still working on it to make sure I can do these fundamentals to the fullest.

I've noticed alot of people havent followed the instructions properly and havent drawn all the heads into different positions.

Hi John, I just finished an extensive study on Head construction through your guidance on your blog from the Preston Blair Books. I was wondering if you could have a quick look and give me some pointers. Thanks in advance.

John,
I am a civil draftsman by trade and can draw maps all day long either by hand or by autocad. That being said, I can't draw a stickman on paper to save my life but I have been trying to learn computer animation with a couple of cheap programs. I have learned the animation part of it fairly quickly but my drawing skills had been really lacking a lot. Since I found your site and

Hi John,
I just wanted to say that even though this post is years old its brought a recent art school graduate back to the basics to learn the proper steps that my art school washed over. It's very tough and i don't know if you will read this but its so rewarding to see my drawings look like the book after so many tries. I know its not your book but you did inspire me and i feel

Hi Amanda

if you have a good teacher who can draw and explain how things look, then that will be helpful. If you wanna be a cartoonist, then my

I confess to not really paying much attention to construction lines before, but they are actually really helpful.

Thanks!

2010-05-31T06:11:34.717-07:00

Hi Phil,

I assumed the light box was for actually animating rather than these drawing exercises. I've just been using a blue pencil to get the basic shapes down and then going over it with a normal pencil to add details and tidy up.

Maybe I'm wrong though?? I don't own a light box yet, but luckily our dinner table is made of glass so I just pop a lamp under it. I

2010-05-30T01:10:48.461-07:00

Uh...guys...I have no idea how to use a light box. Do I draw the circles and put another paper on that, and another paper on that? I'm unable to find anything on here that shows me exactly how that works. Is it here and I just can't find it? Is there another website I can go to that will show me?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all the lessons that you've posted here. It started motivating me in cartooning the right way! I'm sure to study on the Preston Blair book and use your principles to get me where I need to be!

2010-02-26T05:54:41.855-08:00

Thank you for this, though I hate to say this, but I'm 17 and I always have used construction lines on my cartoons. I don't know I thought it was always obvious, in drawing books and things that I had when I was younger, lol- I hope no-one thinks I'm a smart arse.
