Weeks 29 and 30 - Hunt Emerson

I've been lazy about posting but I am still doing artwork and studies. For weeks 29 and 30 I studied Hunt Emerson. I studied from his book Casanova's Last Stand. I chose his work because of his great cartoony style. After the past month being realistic and serious I wanted to go back to my cartoony roots. I can tell we both draw influence from classic cartoon animation. These were very enjoyable studies.

These lessons of copying a classic cartoonist/illustrator then doing originals with his style in mind has helped me improve alot. As much as I would like to continue studies like this, It is time to focus on creating original work. I am trying to improve in taking drawings from start to finish. Also, I am very excited to do my personal project and it can't wait for my skills to improve anymore. Time to get to work.

Weeks 27 and 28 - Jack Kirby

These past two weeks I decided to study Jack Kirby. His style is so dynamic. Every pose is filled with action. He uses anatomy very well. You can see the tension in the muscles of his characters.

Weeks 25 and 26 - Milton Caniff

For these weeks schedules I studied the work of Milton Caniff. I chose Milton Caniff for his realistic style, heavy brushwork, use of lighting his subjects, and realistic clothing. I studied from his book Enter the Dragon Lady from the Philadelphia Free Library.
