This is the last drawing in the course! I have recreated every illustration in the Famous Artist Cartoon Course. BUT my Master study is still far from being finished. Next up is to complete the final assignment given in the Lesson. Then from there I am going to take the lesson ever further with some additional studies that I will talk about in the future. Stay tuned.

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.

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.

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.

Moving onto to the next page of the course there are a total of 3 illustrations to make a study of in addition to about 1/4 a page of written text. Today I will do the first illustration.

The female figure, as the cartoonist draws it is a stylized figure based on the popular American ideal.

This is also more of a challenge as the idealized female figure for me doesn’t exactly meld with the American ideal. It is also difficult as I now have to draw the full figure.

Below is my second attempt at recreating the first figure drawing on this page of the lesson. Look and comparing the two illustrations (mine and Joe King’s) I made mine quite a bit thicker than Joe’s even though I was striving for the super slender figure and his over all pose looks a lot more dynamic than mine.Pretty_Girl_Day_2
