Coldest mother on television?

I like this a lot, but I want to capture Betty Draper just a little younger looking.

Donald Draper

Here's Don. This was a second try, the original is below. I think part of the reason I had so much trouble with him is because he's known for being a very handsome man and it is hard to retain that handsomeness while exaggerating his more pronounced features. I also want to point out that Liz Lemon on 30 Rock says, "he looks like "a cartoon pilot." How do you tell if a large chin is "cartoon pilot" or "Jay Leno?"

Roger Sterling

I also did one of Don Draper, but it became to sculpted and real. I'm happy, however, with the simplicity of this one.

Midnight Snack

Here's Joan Holloway! I was at this point in the middle where it was so perfect and graphic and retro. I want to start minimizing.

Here's a little sketch I did of Teela from "Masters of the Universe."

The Tigers Have Spoken II

I decided to completely redraw the artwork on this one by hand (the original was done on a cintiq). I like the looseness and the gesture in the original, but it wasn't what I pictured for this project. I don't think I've ever redrawn something without making major changes to it, so this was a challenge. Knowing that I was more or less repeating a previous action. And, FYI, I never want to draw chains or railroad again.

You can see the process above (thumbnail drawing, rough sketch, Final A, Final B).
