Continuing on with Lesson 7 of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course these studies are still found within the “Pretty Girls in Action” section of the Lesson. Today we are particularly looking at drawing women in drama.
This is another study from the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls. In these studies we are looking at shifting the weight of the figure and how it dictates the direction and angle of the hips and shoulders.
In this drawing Study I have moved onto the next section out of Lesson 7 of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Drawing Pretty Girls. We are now looking at the “Pretty Girl in Action” This set of illustration in particular is designed to use the hands to make your drawings more expressive.
This is a drawing Study I did out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls. In this one the illustrations on our right are suppose to show a progression of the illustration style from a more realistic foot to a more simplified Cartoon Version of it.
An additional foot study I did out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls. This study is one I have committed to memory as it’s very important to know the Out Side Ankle is lower than the inside and how to draw different types of foot wear.
Today marks day 30 of doing daily studies of pretty girl drawings. This is a leg study from the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls” The idea behind this study is the draw the legs straight and then with the weight shifted to one leg for “greater interest.”
This study from the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls is of the legs. Specifically the lesson instructs a method to find the width of the ankles on a pretty girl drawing by drawing intersecting lines beginning on the outside of the thighs and crossing near the bottom of the legs.
“The man on the street will never know how much lies behind your simple girls drawing.” This is a drawing Study I did from the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls.” The purpose of this study is to pose the figure with the correct tilt of the shoulder and hips. If the right shoulder is down the right hip will be up as long as the figure’s weight is center on the right foot.
This drawing study is out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls.” This study is looking at how the breast affect the clothing and how the breasts can be accentuated with the placement of the folds and pull on the drapery.
Continuing on with the study of the Breasts. These studies are done out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course lesson seven “Drawing Pretty Girls” here we are looking at how the breasts will lift with the arms, and fall to the side while seated or reclined.
Today is the day everyone has been waiting for drawing the Breasts. I am working through the Famous Artist Cartoon Course lesson 7 “Drawing Pretty Girls.” In this study we establish on the average woman the nipple line of the breast falls just below two head lengths from the top of the figure. The course recommends moving the nipple line up to exactly two head lengths in order to “idealize” the figure. The nipple line falling just below two head lengths from the top of the figure does seem to be an accurate measurement on most people I’ve drawn from life and has been a useful measurement to memorize.
Today’s drawing study is done out of the famous artist cartoon course. In this study we are looking at the hair as a large shape and illustrating the difference between a mens hair cut and women’s hair should take up half the head.

These drawing studies I did from the Famous Artist Cartoon Course are various types of girls with the Round Head Shape. The labels “Bird Brain,” “Gold Digger,” and “Dowager” were actually written in under the illustrations the original lesson. Keep in mind this is a drawing course from the 1940s and is not politically correct.
Yesterday I posted Day 11 of the Drawings I did as I work through the Famous Artist Cartoon Course. Unhappy with how my drawings turned out I redrew those illustrations today. I’m not really sure they turned out better but I am glad I gave it another shot. Improvement requires repetition.
This is a new article I wrote commenting on another article about Ten Dim Mak Secrets. What are these secrets and what do I think about these them? Visit my article here on Total Dim Mak Dot Com to find out.
I did three more head studies of what is suppose to be the “average girl.” The Famous Artist Cartoon Course does not really give any specific description or explanation of what constitutes an average girl other than to keep your lines “angular and crisp.” I may redraw this set tomorrow as I’m not particularly happy with how they turned out.
Today as I continue through the Famous Artist Cartoon Course we are drawing the head using the oval shape as a starting point and rotating it inorder to achieve different perspectives and angles of the head. The follow illustrations are free hand recreations I did of Joe Kings drawings from the course.
Today is working on construction of the head based on the fundamental oval shape and building it up. This set of drawings is a free hand recreation I did out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Pretty Girls” original illustrations by Joe King.
Today begins the study drawing the face and head which according to the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “Pretty Girls” is one of the four parts to drawing a pretty girl. In this first exercise we are drawing a profile built off a basic oval shape and building the drawing on top of that.
According to the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 “The most successful method for drawing appealing babes is to pencil in the compete figure in the desired pose before attempting to clothe it. Clothes won’t hide a poor drawing of the figure underneath them.”
Todays drawing is a free hand recreation of Joe King’s illustration of a girl in a bikini signaling the reader or student to turn to the next page.

Today we learn about the “Four essential parts to a sexy girl” according to the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7. Below is the drawing I did from this lesson. It is a free hand recreation of the illustration by Joe King. Each one the four circles in the drawing are suppose to be one of the “four essential parts.” They are listed in the course as 1. The Face 2. The Breasts 3. The Hips and 4. The Legs.
I just finished reading (listening to) Ready Player One: A Novel This was an interesting book.
Here’s the basic premise of the book. The story takes place in the future and it’s pretty dismal. A guy named Halliday created a virtual world that sounds like something similar to “2nd Life” called the Oasis. This virtual world works by putting on a pair of special classes that project the images directly onto your retina and this world is suppose to be so amazing the real world looks like a fog compared to it. Everyone on planet Earth is addicted to this thing. After Halliday (the creator of the Oasis) died he left a message to the world about a final easter egg he has hidden inside this virtual world. Whoever discovers this egg is the heir to Halliday’s entire estate. Halliday, a scholar of 1980s pop culture, has left several clues leading to the final easter egg all these clues pertain to Video Games, RPGS, Comic Books, Television Shows and Movies from the 1980s.
The book shines in it’s meticulously researched references to so many obscure facets of 1980s culture. The book even mentions the RPG Game Champion’s, The made for T.V. Special Ewoks and The Battle For Endor, D&D’s creators Gygax & Arneson, Atari’s Joust and a large amount of late 1970s and 1980s trivia I never even knew about. As far as the story goes the book starts out really slow and it was a struggle to get through the first quarter of it after that the story takes off and I couldn’t put it down till I got to the end of it.
Now here’s some of the stuff in the book I didn’t like or I felt just didn’t make much sense.
Overall it was a good book and while I couldn’t put it down I will admit by the end I was ready for it to be over. I had heard more obscure 1980s trivia than I ever wanted to know.
Today is “The Cartoon Girl Based On Life.”
Todays lesson comes from Famous Artists Courses Lesson 7. This is to teach the artist the difference between drawing the “cartoon girl” and a “real girl.” In the first illustration I was suppose to draw a layin of the figure with the black area’s indicating the figure of the actualy model. It is an exercise in where to change your drawing from life to make an appealing cartoon girl. The second drawing is a fully finished cartoon girl based on the same pose. Both drawings I did are free had recreations of the drawing in the course by Joe King.
