Here's a cover of a Mickey comic posted by John K. I used it to practice my skills at construction.
Here is my process:
1. Sketch the line of action.
2. Decipher the proportions of the larger forms paying close attention to the negative spaces.
3. Draw the medium forms and smaller details making sure that they wrap around the larger forms.
Here's the comparison. I think it looks pretty good. I've captured the line of action and my large forms sit nicely in place, but it's clear that the bodily parts that extend from the largest forms are not anchored correctly. They sort of float about the body.
PS. This weekend, expect to see some more Sydney on Dumm Comics!
