and interesting facts about U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

Reagan Model Sheets
Each realistic drawing is based off of a photo of Reagan (shown to the right).
Below each realistic drawing, I practiced making him into a cartoon using the pose in whatever drawing is above it.
Notes to Myself
Draw Reagan from the side (left & right), front, looking down, looking up, and at angles
Hair is always parted to the left
Angled, rectangular eyebrows
Thin upper lip
Arrow nose, Scrunched on top
Ronald Reagan – Character Model Sheet
This is me developing my character after the realistic drawings.
It was fun to play around with how I wanted Reagan to look because as cartoons, certain features can be exaggerated,
so I changed this with each character version–finding new things to do, deciding how I wanted the cartoon to look different
each time. For ex, some cartoons have little bodies and big heads.
I think the one I ended up using the most to create my final pieces is the one on the bottom left, looking sideways and pointing.
Concept Sketches, Ideas, Fun Facts About & Quotes from Reagan
These are the beginnings of my single-panel cartoons (one also contains a spot illustration).
Each sketch is based on a quote by Ronald Reagan.
These are the first layers (basic body frames and poses) of my single-panel cartoons.
