Disney Drawing Copies

I always look at other artist works and think "Oh, man I really love how that looks" or "Wow, I've never thought of a head being that shape...".  It's pretty obvious (for me at least) that I tend to stay in my comfort zone when I'm sketching and just draw the same things over and over with a little variation.  Over the years I've heard how educational it can be to copy other artists work, but since I'm lacking in the confidence area I get a little freaked out by the thought of my limited knowledge and skill set trying to replicate a great masters work. So I decided to start a little smaller... I went ahead and tried my hand at some Disney related stuff.   These are all pretty quick sketches somewhere in the range of 5-10 mins max.  

After copying a Bambi drawing I figured what the heck why not take a stab and disnefying my own little creatures.  So here's what I came up with. I spent a little longer on these little guys.

Foxy Lady

Here's a drawing I had fun doing last week.  It was my project runway moment of the week I have the basic 12 color prismacolor set so it was fun to take Tim Gunn's advice and "make it work". I'll be honest though most of the colors I needed were pretty well represented in the set so it wasn't that much work... Well, I hope you enjoy!

This is completely unrelated to the drawing but I grew up watching "stupid comedies" (as my mother calls them) and one of my favorite parts in Wayne's World is when Garth dances to Foxy Lady and does the little fox ear thing... So Silly!
