Some Drawings, Digital Stuff, & Tom Oreb Studies

Hello, everyone! So far I'm having a pretty good holiday break and I've taken some time to relax a bit at home. I also got Photoshop for free and got to do some coloring and inking on some drawings I've done and it's been kinda fun. It's good now 'cause I barely see my drawings in color.

These were done with the pen tool in Photoshop. I wish I had a Wacom tablet to draw these on. I think they would've seemed looser.

This is the original drawing of Jack, my rabbit character. I think I prefer this one more than the digital one.

Here are some Tom Oreb studies I've done a while back. I really like his designs for characters especially this Trix kid and Oreb's own version of Peg-leg Pete. He actually looks like a cat for once! I'm thinking of doing more studies of his art and other great cartoonists.

I copied some of his character designs and started to analyze them.

Look at this kid's leg! It's double jointed. I always thought that was some crazy designing and it's very creative/original too.

Here are some of my interpretations.

And here's Peg-leg-less Pete Cat!

Here's some good Tom Oreb websites to check out:

Well, I hope you're all having a good break so far. I think I'll be back soon to show more new stuff!!
