Week 19 - Studies of Al Capp

This week I used the same schedule as the past two weeks, expect I replaced all studies of photos, with studies of the work of cartoonist Al Capp. I studied from The Short Life and Happy Times of the Shmoo a book of Lil' Abner dailies from Life magazine 1948 to 1959. I love Al Capp's line style. He has great economy of line. He suggests form very well without shading or hatching. He is great at capturing expression and emotion in the faces and hands. I definitely learned alot from studies the way we rendered faces.
