Intro to Cartooning: Study of Billy DeBeck/Barney Google
 
Starting a new cartooning class, this is an example of doing a study copy of a great cartoonists work in order to learn from it.

This one is after the work of Billy BeDebeck, who's name I think I mispronounced! lol.

I recomend doing several of these of your favourite artists best drawings, in a systematic fashion targeting both a general understanding of the tools and skills they used, and specific issues with your own work you want to work on.

Here's a link to the final art

I mention a way to remove the colors from scanned art to leave just inks, that's part of this clip here. The color replace trick is at 3:16 - https://youtu.be/wm3Q816WfWk
