Harry Doodle and Redesign

4 Favourites

This is supposed to be not only a doodle but an attempted redesign of one of my other very favorite cartoon characters, Harry from "Harry and His Bucketful of Dinosaurs"

What inspired me to make this was me watching Dennis the Menace by Hank Ketchum. I've watched Dennis the Menace since I was a toddler or preschooler but didn't notice till recently that the characters in that show have bean-shaped heads. In fact I'm starting to notice this about some cartoon characters, not all of them have circle or oval-shaped heads, some have, well I don't know any other way to describe it besides "bean-shaped." And I realized that cartoon characters look more realistic this way because that's how we real people are and I don't know anyone who has a round head. Another cartoon like that is Heathcliff, at least Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats, another show I watch.

Oh and many of the characters on Dennis the Menace have dotted eyes, although some characters like Joey and Mr. Wilson have white eyes. Harry though has dotted eyes.

So I attempted to make Harry with a head like Dennis the Menace and some other cartoons by reshaping his head, but I wanted to try to keep everything else the same, like his hair. Turns out Harry doesn't look so bad like this! I'd like to try this one again and have a colored version of this. And I may try to make other cartoon characters that have circle-shaped heads with this head-shape. What I'm not yet sure of is how to make a full-frontal view of Harry with this head-shape. I'll need to watch Dennis the Menace, Heathcliff, and some other cartoons like it to see.

Drawn September 18 or 19, 2019. No colored version available.
