It's so-and-so.

When it's necessary to add perspective auxiliary lines to draw someone's butt, you know you're drawing one mighty butt X)

Nice!

I love the insight into your process.

It might be mundane to you, but it's genius to the rest of us.

I like how you start anatomical, and then work more and more exaggerated and cartoony.

Great inspiration - thanks for sharing.

How dare you call these Boring! These are brilliant. I really like your approach to caricature.

Emily Anthony said...

These are so NOT boring. I really enjoy your style on these!
The Justin Bieber is great!

Those warmups don't look boring to me. Your superhuman drawing ability makes it look easy and fun.

Was the idea of Ren and Stimpy also inspired by the team of Abbott and Costello by the way? I've been noticing some similarities between those two teams in terms of personalities. What do you think of their style of comedy?

The Butcher said...

The source material is pretty sexy though.

JohnK said...

I'm not crazy about Abbot and Costello, but Laurel and Hardy probably inspired them, the 3 Stooges, Dean and Jerry, The Honeymooners and everything that followed - including Ren and Stimpy.

Sometimes it comes easily, sometimes it's a struggle, as I have discovered. And on that note...

I attempted to draw Brock, if you pop over to my blog.

I think actually I could have benefited from MORE 'boring' exact copying before I started loosening up, but am just a bit pushed for time.

I love to be the bearer of good news.

Id you didn't know, Any Bonds Today is available on DVD through Cartoon Crazies go to War. That makes two of the Censored 11 available through them. It seems that your best bet to release George Liquor and friends to the public is through these guys. If they aren't fazed by Bugs Bunny doing Jolson with blackface, nothing can faze them. Also, what is George Liquor's stance on the BP crisis.

These look great John. How do you draw hands so well?

Also, I've been watching the three stooges on dvd. was Stimpy's voice based on Larry's? They sound very similar.

John, these are anything but boring! These are hilarious! Especially the Justin Bieber one.

I made a nooby mistake of copying a tattoo model from a magazine cover and she was air-brushed to hell! On the same day though I managed to get hold of a copy of an Ann Summers catologue and the girls in there are not only wearing some obscene clothes/ underwear but theres alot of really nice feminine poses, body-shapes and shadowed photographs in there ripe for pickin' and doodling! Hope this helps!:D
