As promised, here’s the rest of the sketches. See if you can identify the theme here.
Real color brush here.
The next three sketches here I did after studying cartoons by Maurico García Castro (also known as Fantasio) and George Ludway. One thing they are very good at is drawing female curves with subtetly. I tend to exaggerate the curves when I study their stuff.
You can find plenty of examples of their works at Shane Glines’s Cartoon Retro, along with a massive archive of other brilliant illustrators and cartoonists that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Certainly worth the $50/year membership fee.
So there you go, a whole bunch of different girls, a whole bunch of different approaches. Let me know what works for you and what doesn’t.
