More sketchbook scratchings, this time of Don Rosa's version of Scrooge McDuck. I love the Disney ducks, both the comics and DuckTales. But my favorite is probably The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. Yeah, Scrooge is a miserly hothead at times. Still, the grouchy old codger is pretty cool.
I love how expressive Don Rosa made the characters. It's something I want to improve on in my own work. So, I figured I'd grab my copy of the book and try to sketch some of Scrooge's poses for body language practice. Poor Scrooge. My skill at drawing Disney ducks is lacking.
The hands were always really interesting to me too. Even in the DuckTales cartoon, the hands were very expressive.
Aww look, happy Scrooge.
