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.

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.

Drawing Pretty Girls Day 20

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.

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 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.

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.
