    ArtRage Cartoon -- Updated More cartoons added

    I saw some discussion of using ArtRage for cartoons and I decided to try my hand.

    About 15 years ago when I was a cartoonist, I had a gag writer (whose name escapes me at the moment) approach me to draw up some of his ideas for magazine cartoons. I did about a dozen roughs from his ideas. (In the magazine world you would submit roughs and only do a final if it was sold)

    My own cartooning method was to draw roughs, put them on a light table and then ink/trace the drawing for the final -- that way you have no pencil lines to erase. I took a scan of one of these old roughs and brought it into AR, using a layer and the smoothing pen to trace it out. Then added some watercolor washes for the shading.

    I'm more than a bit rusty, but I think it's not too bad as a proof of concept to the approach. Al

    Looks really good. I know it's certainly possible to do cartooning type things in AR3 and looking at this one cinches it up.

    I'm missing your usually bright colors though.

    I suppose this is a play on the saying "real men don't eat quiche" I think that was a popular saying in the eighties?
    you drew it well Al.

    AR is definitely very good for cartoonist in most of the styles, or in any of them, I'm quite sure. Moreover ... You're not rusty at all!

    Would love to see more of your cartooning skills, Al--that is, if you´re still interested in doing them. I agree with MagenSparks: it seems odd to look at your work when there´s none of your signature color.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Thanks to all who stopped to look and comment. For those desiring color, here's an example of my color work from back in the mid-90s when I did a lot of cartoons for Sports Illustrated's website. This was after the first Holyfield/Tyson fight -- everyone (myself included) figured Holyfield was dead meat, but he KO'd Tyson to take the title. Al
