    Please help me find reference cartoon hands and feet

    I have been looking for awesome model sheets for stylized cartoon hands and bare feet. I am sure they exist on this site but my search skills suck. Can someone help me? I have actually found some good mickey mouse hands in different poses but the bare feet are more difficult. Please help a technically challenged brother out.

    You might want to try something bit more newer? (Animaniacs, Ren and Stimpy, etc) Though admittedly there's usually less reason to have bare feet in cartoons, concentrate on episodes that feature the beach or bathing.

    Or, you know... you could actually study hands and feet and learn to stylize them?

    You know, "cartoon" doesn't immediately say you want to draw hands and feet like Ward Kimball, secondly your only post has been "do my work for me, wah" which doesn't imply anything good, and thirdly, if you actually want to understand and learn how to draw well, you'll do yourself a favor by actually studying feet and hands. It's not like their basic construction changes that much from real life to cartoon.

    Your crap attitude aside, TinyBird is right. You need to study actual hands and feet, then stylize from there, which is exactly how Ward Kimball learned to do it.

    If you're interested in how Kimball did feet, then learn how to draw feet, then study how he drew hands and apply the same concepts to your knowledge of feet.

    Not to mention, to the best of my knowledge there aren't any extant model sheets from Kimball that have bare feet. Hell, Mickey Mouse even wore shoes to the beach! It's worth going through a lot of the old Disney shorts to see if you can find something, in any case. Oh, and take a look for Aladdin model sheets. Ain't Kimball, but it's still "Disney style" and the lead character is barefoot through pretty much the whole thing.

    Also, stop being an ass, people will want to help you more.

    Same as Hercules and Tarzan, but they were done after the 40's which I guess is just too new...

    Huh, talk about coincidence. Amid Amidi just announced he's been working on a biography of Ward Kimball. It's not done yet, but seems pretty close and is due late next year. Worth a look if you're into Kimball.

    And yeah, Hercules/Tarzan are good, didn't think to mention those. Also, you should be able to find some value in this video.

    I am asking for help. And I have been courteous. I find forums are full of territorial self important blowhards who think it is their duty to lecture anybody who asks a simple question - about everything but the question asked. They do this to flaunt their perceived e-status and vast knowledge of everything that is correct in the world. Save the lectures please. I don't give a damn what you think about anything but model sheets.



    BTW I have looked at hercules and tarzan. Both are stylized in a way that is different from what I need. Tarzan for instance is very apelike and he doesn't really fit. I would love to see some feet that match the awesome hands model sheet from the iron giant.

    Which is part of the problem here actually. Do you have any wish to contribute anything, learn or listen anything or put work into anything or are you just another of those multiple people who think we are some Google-4-U website here, and then vanish to be never seen again?
    In a website that's full of people who put countless hours into improving themselves, work hard and do their own research?
