Lesson 9 Part A

I was drawing angry and depressed. Poor me- poorer drawing.

Hi John and everyone. It took a while to get this one done. My drawings aren't perfect but doing your lessons is helping me get better I think. Here are my appeal and cuteness drawings:

Thanks!

I am posting my line of action drawings and my fluid poses drawings.
The fluid pose drawings get better at the end I think. Here are the links:line of action

I think I am going to split my posts for this lesson into 3 since it seems like a long one to get through. Here are my construction drawings for this lesson: construction drawings

I'm good at tracing, but when it comes to drawing without looking, I do have a few problems with it.
If I copy all of them out, will it really help me? I started to do so a few days ago, but I'm not sure if it will work. Is there any way for you to see my drawings and comment on them and tell me how to improve? By email maybe? Thank you!

2007-04-06T00:31:00.000-07:00

I agree that construction is what’s missing from cartoons today. I’ve tried and tried for 20 years to learn to draw by construction, but the part of my brain that contains spatial IQ must be damaged or missing. Also I suspect the problem is that all drawing books assume that I already know the fundamentals of how to draw and that I just need to learn the right technique and do it the

Isn't most of animation really depending on what you're trying to do? Don't get me wrong, sir, I enjoy your articles and I can totally agree with you on almost 90% of what you say.

And I've also factored in that the 10% I don't agree with is also due to the fact that I just grew up with some of the things you bash. So I let it go.

But I've noticed that really, animation can

Ha, I really suck at this. I've been animating a film recently, and constantly forget to use these principles in my drawings. I just can't be arsed. I have a long way to go, me thinks! =S

2007-01-15T11:25:00.000-08:00

Actually John, I may be wrong about you being able to edit the html of the archive links manually. I can't seem to do it in the old version of blogger; if you're using the new version, I don't have anything of value to tell you. You might be able to alter the archive settings and republish, then alter the settings back to the current configuration and republish again, to fix the problem. Or maybe

2007-01-15T11:11:00.000-08:00

Kieranm: the old post archives have a mutilation in their url formation. There is a word that should be archive that is, instread, rchive. Alter "rchive" in the url to "archive" and the links will work.
John, you can manually alter the html to fix this if you like.

>> Well, that's not technically a model sheet, it's a page from Preston's book, but the poses look straight out of the cartoons. <<

Unless I'm mistaken, at least some of those are not Preston's drawings, particularly the Tom and Jerrys. He obviously got permission (at the time) to use them in his book. I saw those drawings in another book with credit given to somebody else. Can't

Great model sheets John!
So a new studio, eh?
Ever think of coming back to Canada and opening one here? Maybe here in the central spot of the country?
I can dream can't I?

2007-01-14T19:09:00.000-08:00

hi john. could you talk more about what you think of life drawing? how to take the most out of it and the way to apply it to cartoon drawing?. i remember once i read an interview you gave that lot's of young artist show you in they porfolios 5 minutes poses and you don't like that 'couse those sketches never show you the finished drawings.
thanks

"New studio"

I'd absolutely love to see some proper cartoons this side of the Atlantic.

Will this new studio be doing promotional stuff like the Rateku and Tenacious D. stuff or creator-driven cartoons with proper storyboard driven action!

2007-01-14T17:40:00.000-08:00

Well, I know I'm way past the shelf life on working for you, and not nearly up to snuff in the skills department, but I still work on this stuff constantly.

Even when I'm sitting in my classroom, waiting for students, I get out some paper and start constructing heads and figures and thinking in terms of line of action and silhouette.

For me, this stuff is useful for doing

2007-01-14T15:14:00.000-08:00

This lesson helps me a lot. Characters should look like they are more than just a flat stylized drawing. I'm going to practice this lesson.

Did you recieve my email?

Darn, I'm still not good enough! I'm still trying to perfect lesson one! Gotta get cracking!

John, is the studio going to be called Spumco?

>I'm not sure if Preston Blair ever work on any of the Tom & Jerry toons (maybe Thad and his "posse" would know)

Well, that's not technically a model sheet, it's a page from Preston's book, but the poses look straight out of the
