An Ode to Pants

"My dungarees make them hun-ga-ree."
My cartoony design of Jemaine from The Flight of The Conchords in a few different kinds of pants. This was inspired by the lyrics in their song "Sugalumps".

"All these bitches lookin' at my britches."
"Put em in a trance when I wear track pants."

My line work. It's not perfect. I kept it a little looser than usual. I absolutely love the out stretched foot on the track pants pose. Those huge feet were really fun to draw. My favourite one is for sure the dungarees pose though.

PS. I graduated. As fun as cartooning and animation are, I've absolutely worked my fingers to the bone the last 4 years. Those of you who are also cartoonists and/or animators undoubtedly know that you live and breathe this stuff and it's not just a career, but a lifestyle.
Needless to say, it felt good to finally get that piece of paper that states I can officially and professionally draw boogers and bums.
Congrats to all my peers as well.
