Lesson 7 With P-P-Porky

Here is my Lesson 7 "When Generic Is A Good Thing", and seeing as how I've already studied Tom and Jerry, I wanted to draw some Warner Bros. I found some Porky pics on the internet to study for the first couple, and then I grabbed a bunch of screenshots from my copy of "Kitty Kornered," by Bob Clampett. Those were a lot of fun, especially since that is one of my favorite episodes, and one of my favorite directors. In the middle of this lesson, life got in the way and I had to postpone my lessons, but now I'mmmm bbbbaaaack.

Here was the long break from the lessons, but I think they are getting better than ever.

And here are all of the attempts

Tell me what you think, and I'd love to hear some critiques. The worst part about training your eye to see all of the little details, is my drawings are starting to look worse and worse to me (especially when put next to the original). But on their own the are starting to look pretty decent.

  1. Whoa! That's a lot of work.

    Now try drawing your own poses of him to see if you were thinking about how Porky works when you copied the film frames.

    Your pal,


  2. Geeze! you did A LOT more than me for lesson 7:

    And you're way better. Maybe I'm rushing? I got to lesson 7 in about 2 weeks. Though it's been my intention to begin again at lesson 1 when I reach the end.

    Keep it up!
