Sometimes (for practice) i’ll redraw an old comic panel, or cover in my sketchbook for fun.  It helps me break down how other artists make their pages and i can see drawing in another light.  This is one of those exercises.  I, of course, have to put my own spin on it as well.  As a kid, i used to redraw and trace images i loved all the time, and I’m pretty convinced that it helped strengthen my drawing chops.  I don’t know why i ever stopped…  Well, I’m gonna pick it up again (when i can) and just doodle stuff like this out.  This one i probably spent more time on than most of the other images to redraw, but sometimes you just get carried away and have to go for it.  It’s also a fun thing to do when you are feeling less than inspired to draw something.  So, top image is my take on a romance comics cover, and below is the original i took it from.  Notice the subtle differences…
