I wanna cartoon!

Tis is screwy from Tex Avery. The pose is from a modelsheet. I experimented with the faces.

Great work as always, Mitch, but how do you prevent your linework from appearing too shaky or lumpy, especially when it comes to details? I have been grappling with this problem lately (I also tend to water down some of the corners and angles when copying a framegrab).

That's a difficult question. I think a good pencil is important, I notice that how softer the pencil is that the lines also getting softer (thus less shaky and stiff). Besides that I think that if you understand the character better the lines will get better. In my ealier drawings my lines where a lot stiffer.
