So, the camel loses the hat. And the smile.

Trying for a more stylized elephant. Was at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre to see a musical tonight, and Hirschfeld's drawings were all over the venue, with his fabulous flowing curves everywhere, and I resolved to make my sketches more stylized. And there's something about sketching on paper that makes it just easier to get a nice flow. Unfortunately my friend didn't really get them, and wanted them to be a bit more straightforward. Thankfully they were only thumbnail sketches!

I based the style on the illustrations of an old cookbook I found about 15 years ago, one that was originally published in 1949. I used it for inspiration and this pose was actually part of a drawing of wedding cake that I expanded on (the figures on the cake were kissing, but you couldn't see it at all, it was so abstract).

Anyhow, I'm trying to do this project with a 50s/60s style cartoon look, but can't decide exactly how...

I've been commissioned to draw, among other things, a bride and groom/groom and groom/ bride and bride for a new product line. But a friend asked me out for a drink tonight, and it's never just one as they offer, and two frozen margaritas later, I'm still unable to make a concerted drawing effort. Still, I think this looks like the 50s style I'm aiming for... at least in this sketch form.
