View Full Version : My first cartoon

Any comments on this?
I went about this first gag the wrong way. I did the artwork, and THEN had to come up with a "line" for it. FIRST the IDEA, THEN the artwork! FIRST the IDEA, THEN the artwork! FIRST the IDEA, THEN the artwork! Etc.

black and white how appropriate. Is that madonna in Patricia Neal's role?

Thanks fer the kind comments, folks.
I'm kinda working on a couple of comic strip characters right now (a dog and a cat), more so than thinking about gag panels. I've been writing about these two characters's exploits on another art forum for several months (with no thought of cartooning them whatsoever), so they're almost real to me already. I'm trying to nail down their visual identities now.
After doing nothing but abstract art for four years, this is a very strange transition period for me. If I scream and cry a lot, pay no attention to me.
Again, thanks for your comments.

Creating a caricature portrait is a difficult and time consuming proses, however it is pleasurable and enjoyable if you can looked it this way. A lot of practice is needed and the using of your brain turns to be the most important thing.

Also visualising in your mind the way to exaggerate the futures of the person in order to do a good caricature will affect your ability to create anything in the field of comic art.
