Redrawn

pick a random page from a comic. redraw it. post it here.
Came across this blog today, so I used it as my morning drawing warm-up. The nearest book was Child’s Play, a collection of Stan and Jan Berenstain’s (non-bear) comics and cartooning. This is a sample of a daily strip they did briefly for two years (‘53-54) along the lines of Dennis the Menace.
I discovered a lot of subtle things about the way the Berenstains approached character design and panel layout that I think is useful. Also, it made me appreciate some of the choices I make when I draw, and understand why I draw the way I draw. Good things, over-all!
By the way, if the link is broken, I’ve posted a version of this (along with the original) on my webcomics blog: babble comics
