Nice figure workouts Mr. Woods! A cartoonist friend got me going on some classic instruction books way back by Jack Hamm (which I bought paperback reprints of) and his photocopying of pages from Andrew Loomis... I've still never seen anything better; although Burne Hogarth and John Buscema books are also nice to have, especially Hogarth for shade and light. Too many people want to get to the finished stage too quickly and haven't done the work on the underlying structures. They could teach in schools like they used to but it seems so hard to find anymore. It's really bad when you have people learning to draw from copying someone's comics who learned to draw from copying someone's comics who.... etc. this is why Japanese cartoons look like crap so often these days, generations removed from Osamu Tezuka.

I owned the books you mentioned in the past, but with
all my moving around in life, and losing things, I don't
know where they ended up.

photoshop.

I've been digging some artists on Instagram that mashup comics and cartoon imagery with xerox and stuff. I wanted to play around with it just for fun, but digitally.

Converting my 300 dpi scan to 72 dpi for the post looses some clarity on the Zip-a-tone, but you get the idea. This panel is ready for brush work. I will do a pass with black ink and then a final pass with white. You know where to find the pencils. I would say my inking sketchbook ballooned up by 20 pages recently. =)

I like that Invisible Woman! But oh, poor Mothra! :^(

I'm trying to get an old computer back working so maybe I can scan things in with the now obsolete (to the new system anyway) flatbed scanner. I found this was on it from almost twenty years ago...
