Folks Seem to Like Drawing Sody


Here's more inks from Brian Romero.
Looks like real Spumco material to me.

People keep sending me their renderings of Sody Pop.Here's Kali's...

And Art's.

I'm gonna be doing some cartoons about Sody and her pals soon, so if you are good at drawing cute girls, I'm gonna need some help. It ain't easy, lemme tell ya!

No kiddin' it ain't easy--I've been drawing real girls (or parts of them--examples on my blog) to aid in my drawing skills before I move on to cartoon chicks, and it's a challenge.

I really like Kali's Sody--great work!

I should mention that the girls I've drawn are nude, so if the sight of boobs and/or asses offends you, a) get a life, and 2) don't click the link.

i wish i could draw

but i can't

even my stick men look like dead turtles and i give you PROPS all you people who make it seem so frigging easy!

In the second picture, Is Sody's facial expression based off of Jessica Borutski's face and mouth? I've seen you draw her that way.

Art's is awesome, Kali's is just beautiful.

i like chad coyle's girls, you should call him.

I'm not very good drawing the ladies. Who should I start ripping off, John? I love katie's drawings, but they're so exquisite, i'm not sure if they're suited to learning by replication, what do you think?

Kris said...

Oh wow. Kali's is my favorite! I love that Golden Book coloring style, and it's really neat to see it applied to one of your characters.

Where did they send you this? Your profile doesn't include email. Or did they just post them in their blogs?

I really like Kali's version. Art's pretty accurate.

It's true that it's hard, the more cartoony you do it the more difficult it gets. I'm actually copying some of those drawings cause I like to draw sexy girls once in a while , but I want to learn to make them a little more cartoony.

GREAT job Kali!!! simply awesome!thank you guys for the nice comments. i still have A LOT to learn, but i'm havin' fun.

fluffy said...

I don't like Sody so much, so I decided to draw John K instead.

Disclaimers: I only know what John K looks like from his Blogger profile, and I have no aspirations of becoming an animator (I just like to doodle and sometimes make comics).

Heh, Sody's a cute character, It's no wonder people like drawing her. Kali's is fantastic by the way!
I'm proud to say the Preston Blair book is paying off, an 8 bucks well spent. I've had it for some time and (gulp) I'm still only on the first page... so sue me, I'm taking my time! I'm a slow learner, but I'm really improving. Thanks for turning me onto it!

Hey, John and everyone.

I've been reading this blog for about three monthes now, and I figured I'd post now that everyone seems to posting pictures of cute girls. But first I want to say that just three months ago, before I started reading, I was drawing in a [very bad] westernized anime look. I thought it was the cat's pajamas, and now I want to go back in time and beat myself in the face. In these three months, I've ditched that, practiced the basics of Preston Blair, and tried my best to soak up every word John has to say like a sponge. I know John's posted a few times wondering if his posts do any good, and I just wanted to share some fruit of my labor and his teaching:

Not Sody Pop, but I think You'll like it.

And if you don't like it, I just wanted to let you know the big impact you've had on me as an artist, and you've given this nineteen year old kid a reason to draw and improve everyday.

Thanks for everything John. Please keep posting.
