Pockets08: A Daily Chuckle Apr. 27th, 2012 @ 09:10 PM Reply

Okay, so you've all seen my crap art, and you know I cant draw, I know I cant draw, but Im fucking stubborn. So, I invested in my time of studying Newspapers, the funny pages, comic books, and famous artists of the gag reels. Decided - Maybe I'll give it a try...So, After two long days of absolute reading, and light testing and practice, I presen tto you, my first gag Panel.

Previously, I had an Art thread...But Now, I will be dedicating mysaelf, to Cartoonism, my closet is now full of minor caricatures of my family, and myself. I will be posting things as I get better. Hope you had atleast a minor whiff of a smile.

I like your art, honestly. I mean have you ever watched cartoon network lately, most of the characters on it anymore are blobs with legs. haha =] I think that it makes you a better artist just because you had to look everything up and study where some people have it naturally. It is very cool that you won't give up. and I'm telling you don't give up. Your art is cool =]

This image is small caricatures of my best friend Ray, Myself, my brother conner, and unknown locationed friend Junior. Beside is are items that have repsented us throughout our lives, or where we are today. Some of the stuff didnt come up on the scanner, like next to Conenrs face is suppsoed to be a sprinkler head shooting water, I didnt ink the water, so now it looks liek a beer bottle. Oh well.

Also, i put a small shadow under each pieace, cause i wanted them to look like cuts outs thrown on a page. I just liked the feel.

Overall I think it's an improvement, cause I suck with faces. This looks, minorly better - and specifically the image of myself, is the exact way I want to draw. Like - EXACTLY, minus the jitteryness of my hand. So - Im going to try and replicate that as much as possible. and as always, thanks a bunch guys. :)

That's pretty good. Each face is different in its own way. You've got a style going on, keep it up.

Idk if its against rules or not..would be nice if somone told me before I start doing it :3

The file size may be over 200kb, but the forum is usually able to resize them to allow for posting.

This is pretty good work to be fair, have you ever tried your hand at animation? I think your characters would look good on that medium.
Don't tell yourself you can't draw when you so obviously can. and I think that you should only draw in a way in which you feel happy doing. That is to say, if you want to get better at drawing something, then by all means, go ahead. But feeling happy with your drawings is what it's all about really.
keep up the good work Brah!
