Toon June drawing challenge

Post by Mr. Big (?) » Sat Jun 02, 2018 3:39 pm

So here's something that I want to try out, TOON JUNE! You basically draw cartoony stuff for a whole month.

Here are the prompts.



There's a casual edition as well.

Any artists here want to try it out?

Day 1: My favorite cartoon character.

Image

I had a hard time choosing this one. I narrowed it down to Rocko and Super Chicken, but went with the latter because I figured nobody else was going to draw him.

I knew the job was dangerous when I took it. :v:

Day 2: My least favorite cartoon character.

Image

Again, another difficult choice. I considered Johnny Test, Scrappy Doo, and others, but went with Roger the alien. The character is such a sociopathic maniac that it's a bit hard to find him endearing.

I would still choose Peter or Brian over him in terms of who is the worst but basically any McFarlane character is fine IMO

Yeah, I also considered them as well. Basically, all McFarlane characters are terrible and it's hard to choose which one is worse :-I

I guess it really depends on what bugs you the most.

Toon June Day 12: Your character in the limited animation style.

Image

Drew Princess Kat in the Total Television (Underdog, Tennessee Tuxedo) style. This was a bit hard because all of my characters look like they came from a limited animation show.

Toon June Day 13: Adapt your character in the design-centric UPA style. Here's Princess Kat if she would appear in "Tom Terrific" (which was made at Terrytoons, but Gene Deitch worked at UPA so it still counts)

I felt like drawing but had no idea what to draw so I thought I'd catch up with this. I don't have anywhere near the knowledge on the history of cartoons ans Bakertoons does, meaning some of these are the result of google searches. Also sometimes I've drawn comic book characters, which arguably aren't cartoons, but whatever I had fun.

Favourite character

There's an obvious answer here.
Image

Least Favourite Character

In all fairness we're meant to not like her.
Image

1920s

Scouring through some Wikipedia lists I stumbled upon Flapper Fanny Says. She was a cartoon that embodied the fashion styles at the time. Every cartoon was a single panel of Fanny in a new outfit, captioned with a contemporary witticism. Here's an example.
Image

1930s

Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. Apparently the first female comic book hero to have her own title. The more I contemplate her design, the more I wonder whether this first for women was really for women at all.
Image

1940s

Walt Disney's tragic deer thing.

Image

I couldn't find anything interesting in the 1950s, but I realised that this challenge missed out the 70s. I skipped the 50s and included the 70s later.

1960s

Arguably the beginning of mankind's downfall.

Image

1970s

Officer chin

Image

1980s

I wasn't an 80s kid but I read my cousin's Hellblazer comics in my childhood.

Image

1990s

While drawing Spinelli it dawned on me that Sticks from Sonic Boom is a total ripoff, down to the weird sideways hair buns.

It's a safe bet that a lot of early female cartoon characters, even the main characters, were definitely drawn with male gaze in mind :-I

Day 15: Princess Kat in anime style.

Was trying to do a "Gutsy Frog" style, but it ended up looking like "Urusei Yatsura"

Still playing catch up. Here's an attempt at that early Warner Brothers' "Golden Age" style.

I couldn't get the limited animation style to work for me but the UPA style went somewhere

Image

And then I had a lot of fun drawing in the stylings of Klasky Csupo

Image

and a final anime style
