Draw in small to dream big

The drawings, great as a thumb was said once, are to create the idea fast and immediate.

You can crop and place on a leaflet as you see in this example. This system, called composition, leads us to be more concentrated on every figure and on each element seen.

1-a snake, what does it do here?

2 and 4-a study of a character

3 and 5-another study of a character

6-expressions: a character that needs a face and a body

7, 8, 9 and 10- Three cuttings comprise a composition. The artwork is ready to be painted or drawn up in any other way. The tree, on the right, and the clouds, on the left, are there to complete the design.

Some HINT:

Use the blue pencil for fast sketches or for the corrections. Use the rubber the less possible.

Use the basic forms, the circle, the square and the triangle does not betray never.

Look around you: there is always something to draw!!!

You can then photocopy, reproduce or design from new what you need from your little drawing, great as a thumb!

Another very nice submission!

Thanks Luca Maria for another nice submission!

The drawings are short, simple and straight to the point! The idea of combining several drawings into one is really great to give the author a more global vision and to compare several cartoons.

With some imagination, this can also become a nice and original way to build a comic book with more attitude and style!

Another great idea!
