24 Doodles - 3

This chap was sitting along from me in the British Library in June, while I was working on what became English For Pony Lovers. I've been trying to learn to be more stylistic with my drawing, which I only seem to be able to do by doing the same drawing repeatedly, only more so each time.

The last drawing has a titch of a Hanna-Barbera feel, which I thoroughly enjoy. :D ❤

P.S. Isn't that how you sorta go more stylistic? Practicing on the same subject again and again? I've noticed a few doing so, anyway. . .

P.P.S. He looks a bit miffed. Did he catch you drawing him? >u>

Fascinating to see these sketches developing. The bottom one looks like a character from Tintin.

Yup, that's how you do it! Unless of course you're the type who tries to go for stylization by degrees and ends up with a dozen completely identical drawings (not that I'd know anything about that). It looks like you've managed to skip that stage. :)

Do you always keep an eye out for potential character inspirations when in public places John?

Pleasingly Tintin-esque.

Sorry this is rather sneaky but in the last picture there is some text visible from the opposite side of the page. With some quick photoshop trickery I was able to make out 'Maybe she does need to be 16...', '...when price is announced...', and '...at it and L lies about her...'.

I have just recently listened to English for Pony-Lovers, which I thought was fantastic.

Sorry for the aforementioned sneakyness, though if someone else would join in this conjecture that would of course make us a pair of, oh yes that joke has already been done.
