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.
Day 50 of the Master Study I’ve been doing from Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls.

This is the final illustration study from the “Pretty Girls In Action” section of Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course. Stay tuned there are only two remaining section left for me to do master studies of until I have completed the course.
This another pose I drew several days earlier out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls. This time with the figure clothed. Again the same principal of the shift in weight to one foot affecting the angle of the hips and shoulders.
These are the same three poses I drew several days ago out of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course Lesson 7 Drawing Pretty Girls but now with clothing on the figures. The same principals of the shift in weight affecting the angle of the shoulders and hips still applies.
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.
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.
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.
