New toy studies: Tub back

I believe this toy belongs to the indestructible Kali Fontecchio! I am drawing a few of her toys that she's posted, and this is the first of three I started yesterday. I finished this one today.
My first shot turned out pretty slumpy and yucky, so I won't even post it.

So I straightened him out a bit. That head shape is a lot harder than it looks.
The hardest part, however, is that darned hat. It was kind of hard to see in my print-out, and it STILL isn't right. However, my paper was getting worn down from erasing and re-drawing. It is a learning experience.
So, I love listening to podcasts (preferably drawing/cartoon-related or boring informative ones) while I do my studies. Any recommendations?

Nicer lines

I would have posted this last night when I finished it, but my internet is down... so, good morning internet!

Most of my problems with this drawing are in the feet area. The sole on the left looks too gummy, and the right ankle seems too flimsy, to me.

I told you I'd post more

I want to adjust some things. I want to make the arms flow a bit more, push out his fanny, figure out how to make his hands better-looking, and of course add details...

Time to clean up while making a couple more corrections.

Returning from the Dead


Okay, I've wasted a lot of time, lately. Well, I guess it hasn't been wasted totally; I've lost like 8 lbs and did some other stuff that was good for me. But time now to stop dinkin' around on things that aren't cartoons.
