Color original by Dale Keown (maybe my favorite comic artist) and Matt Milla, along with my black and white version.

I wanted to try drawing some established characters, much in the same way a musician learns to play popular songs, just to see if I could do it. No tracing allowed, only a small reference photo. Here's my first attempt with Andy Capp. I'm including the color original and my black and white version.

Not sure I like the way this guy's head is turned, but that's how I started the drawing, so everything needed to be drawn around that central point. The elephants were drawn without any reference photos, so anatomically they are spare. But with their eyes I could tell the story that they are either addressing or avoiding the human in the room.
