Hey William, these are pretty good. They have good proportion and nice personality. The problem I am seeing is the lack of structure in your drawing. This is causing them to look kind of flat. I did a quick sketch to show you what I mean, I hope it helps :)

Thank you for the advice! I have been working on getting my proportions right and I am glad to hear I have improved. I have always had trouble with making pieces look flat but I shall keep working on getting the structure right as it is important for any piece of work to have

Haven't posted on here for a long time, but since my art interests have changed so much, I decided to post some of my newer drawings on here for fun for fun

Wanted to do some frog studies. As a cartooonist I don't tend to do digital paintings much, but I like how these came out. Anyone have any more tips or resources for digital painting? Its still pretty new for me, but its refreshing to try something different for personal works.

I love how the race of each character its easily recognizable. This is absolutely the type of art i want to be doing in my future. Kudos!

Some examples of construction lines being used to build up cartoon figures. I generally almost always use construction lines when cartooning (unless I'm just sketching for general enjoyment) or for doing an illustration that requires perspective, lighting, and or objects to be involved with characters

Wanted to practice some comic esque faces. Overall I think I did pretty good for not doing this type of style in a bit, but still have a hard time drawing lips and having the head facing foward

These are all pretty fun! Also thats a pretty nice new years resolution to have. I myself adore inking and its fun to see people get into the specific medium more. If you need any more artist to study, and or resources for inking dont hesitate to respond! I have a ton of artisit I myself enjoy and won't hesitate to share them (dont want to drop an unwanted pharagraph haha).

Cat in Boxes

Wanted to practice drawing some boxes but couldn't resist drawing some cats in them. I generally try to practice fundamentals, but I like adding in some fun every once in a while since straight studying can kill me creatively sometimes haha.

Sweet! I like all the drawings, your lines are so lively and simple. That's really beautiful!

Nice - Could you share how you get the line thickness to vary ? Is it a dip pen or some such ?

These are all done digitally with pen pressure for varying line thicknesses. You could absolutely get the same results with a dip pen and or brush pen. There are many resources available to learn how to ink and how to control the varying thickness and if you are interested I recommend Arthur L. Guptill's: Rendering in Pen and Ink for traditional inking methods and techniques (though do note the book is older and some of the business advise/materials mentioned have become obsolete but it still has some good material).

Cartoon Sketches

Howdy, everyone! My name is William and I'm brand new to this Proko community! I've been drawing for 8 years and mostly focus on cartooning. I'm a tad bit nervous since I don't tend to post my art on socials much but I hope you enjoy some of these sketches I've made throughout the year.
