Sexy Chick - Chris Sanders Style

Hey everybody!! This one is for the boys! Funny story this week I was using an artist named Chris Sanders as reference at work for a character I was working on, a friend of mine saw my browser and asked "why you looking at porn?" haha.
For those of you who don't know, Chris Sanders is a big name in the animation/art community. He worked at disney for a number of years, influencing the style of characters and backgrounds most notably if you havent guessed Lilo & Stitch. His personal work consists of sexy ladies and its really awesome. That's why i had to explain im not referencing porn, its the artist style i was referencing.  So i wanted to try a drawing to emulate that style. It was definitely harder to execute than i thought. i should do more of these because i need practice drawing the female form, and im sure i could totally sell these sexy drawings to horny fanboys at conventions hahaha. ENJOY!

Now those of you artists out there who want to read about my troybles doing thiscdrawing read on:

Heres the inital sketch. Chris Sanders always draws a cute animal with his sexy ladies so i thought to myself because this is a homage to this mans work and style im going to draw stitch in. i was so frustrated after i made this sketch because i felt like something was wrong. Like it looked so terrible and i couldnt put my finger on it. even getting the face right i was upset because it didn't turn out the way i wanted it to. the drawing was very stiff and vertical, it was just not there.

So i actually drew over the drawing multiple times. My figure drawing professor would be so happy. I drew boxes and cylinders in jts to figure out the anatomy. One thing i realized is that Sanders has such a strong understanding of anatomy that he's able to make a females legs and hips look big while keeping the drawing look appealing and cute. I almost opened my anatomy book to just understand where I could push the figure more.
after i got a better understanding of her weight and anatomy i started the cleanup line drawing. looks cool.

Mini Marvels #1

In honor of the San Diego Comic Con this week (which i wish i was there :(   ) I decided to start what I hope becomes a series of drawings. I was inspired by an artist on FB who's cute characters made me wish I came up with it first. But because this blog is all about me trying different things to find my "style" I decided to do this. Check her stuff out. Just search Pocket Princesses on Facebook you'll fall in love imediately.
But because this blog is about my art here issue NUMBER 1 of Mini Marvels. Couldn't decide what would be the first one I did so I did a homage to one of the craziest fights in comic book history. For those of you who don't know, wolverine almost lost his life to Magneto after magneto sucked all the adimantium from his bones right through his pores. Ouch... and I thought sweating the alchohol from hangovers was bad hehehe. Hope you like it. And I hope to do more soon.
