General Shapes

I've been working with flash AS3 and, in the spirit of simplified shapes, briefly worked on some cartoon studies. This was a side sketch. Sad power girl..well.. because she's drawn poorly. :D Whenever I draw loopy eyes with a few too many scratchy/sketchy marks it feels like I was trying for a John K Ren & Stimpy style.

Honestly, it's very helpful to practice cartoon styles as they focus on simplicity, large general shapes and gesture, somethings I'm terrible at conveying properly. I make the beginner mistake almost all the time of jumping straight into detail, making a contorted mess of my project.
