How to Draw a Cartoon Lion---Part II the body

Here we are again, part II of my latest project. A book on how to draw cartoons; although the working title is sounding more like. 'How would you like to draw cartoons like this?'(with a very busy and intricate picture below).

At this stage I'm still looking for a look and layout for the book. So please do forgive me if the pages tend to chop and change in appearance.

Also this is a 'back-burner' project. Don't get me wrong, it's not like I don't consider this project worthy of my every waking second, but time, work and more pressing commissions have forced it into the relegation zone and afforded it its 'back-burner' status.

But seeing as this is a diary of my life as a cartoonist and writer, I will be letting you know about all this project and the many other I have on the go, both commissioned and private; like the New Comic Strip Submission series that I'm running. (part III to be posted on this Friday coming).

So with that explained and out of the way, let's move on into the horizon of a bright new future with the second section on How to Draw a Lion (to enlarge the picture, click on the image and open it, full size, in another pane). This one deals with the drawing of the Lion's body; having shown you all how to draw the head last week.

Have fun, have a go, and send me samples of what you get up to. (For those professional cartoonists amongst you, this is your turn to act all smug and pull out the 'been there, done that' T-Shirt).

Next Wednesday I'll be showing you the progress I'm making on a new Rugby poster design. I'm hoping to be showing you the background sketches and the process I now use to put these heavily involved pictures together and how my system has changed over the years.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed this post. If you did then please share it like a demented sharing person and keep on coming back for more of the same, and a whole lot besides.
