More Elmer

More practise from Elmer. I hope I will be able to try some own poses of Elmer, but first I need to be able to make a good copy of him.

I have some problems with the eyes. I think the main problem is what I am doing wrong is that I don't wrap them good around the shape of the head, the jaw is an other problem I need to do better.

What do you think?
Does someone else have other modelsheets of Elmer?

-update
I did the body. I did it too fast. Allot of parts aren't the right angle or the right proportion, I think I need to take more time and compare it while I'm drawing more with the original. Previous study's I did before of other charachters I took more time for, I compared it all the time when drawing.

out of curiosity, and as a fellow student of classic cartoon characters; do you measure the proportions as you draw, or do you just eye them. Or both?

I usually try both, as I am learning to develop a natural sense of balance.

I think it is always good to measure the proportions, at least the big things like the whole body. You can check it quick by just compare the rest of the body with the head.

I measure as much as I can when I am drawing. I thinks that as you measure often it will sink in with time.
