Evil Squirrel was kind enough to give a detailed demonstration on how he draws his little cartoons in MS Paint and makes them look like something other than what a drunk four-year-old drew. You might check it out. I did a few experiments. I’m still not quite satisfied with the detail I get, but I still feel some improvement.
My second try. I just started doodling and came up with this guy. I call him King Narc, cause he looks like a royal twit.
An artist friend once told me all my male figures looked gay. He may have had a point. Also he turned out to be gay later, so he would know. I have more practice with girls, cause girls are prettier, duh.
Okay, now a self-portrait. I’d like to rub some edge off those thighs, but I believe they are rather close to accurate. My body seems to get non-proportionally bigger as you go down.
Okay, so no one can say I didn’t try. Does this mean I’ll stop making my other stick peeps? Don’t know. They are easier – in some ways. I’m still thinking of getting one of the graphics tablets, provided I can learn how to use one. My technical skill leave some to be desired. Good thing I write a humor blog.
Anyhoo, I thank Evil Squirrel for taking the time to detail his process for me. That is far more than my Squirrel would do, as he is too busy racing at top notch speed into trees and knocking himself out.
Or setting himself on fire. You just never know. Thanks again, ES. Squirrels rock.
