It’s about time I drew a goof besides myself. This time I approached it more like a Bargue drawing, measuring and correcting as I went (as you can see from all the half-erased lines). In fact, I think I’ll make these my replacement for Bargue drawings, since it gives you the same sort of practice (learning to see accurately), but you end up with a cartoon character instead of a boring piece of clip art.

Tons of sketches tonight, but none that I really wanted to share. But to keep up with my quota, here’s an example of me trying to inject some movement into a cartoon character.
