I went to Target during my lunch break to buy some hand sanitizer and saw the Darkwing Duck DVD set and I was like "What?!" and then I copped that joint.

As a youngster I noticed the animation varied in episodes but never knew or really cared why, so I decided to look at the credits. I always liked the crispy clean look of the Japan animation, but I also liked the Aussie animation which has a lot more personality than the others, methinks.

With that said, I sketched these headshots from the "Comic Book Capers" episode, trying to learn to draw a better DW I guess...uh 15 years later.

OMG I'm so lame. Just by looking at the sketches I knew what episode was, just from the style. Wow. I need a life.

Good job! One of the best eps to base your character design on if you ask me. I love this one adn I love the way it looks all throughout. Some of the best expressions come out of this one.

In a way, I like the over-exaggerated Tiny Toons-styled episodes, but I also like the more subtle episodes as well. It's such a great show I rarely notice anyways. Your sketches captured Drake's expressions perfectly.

I liked the animation in Comic Capers. It reminded me of some of the second season Bonkers episodes. 83

Also, you draw Darkwing pretty much perfectly. ^__^

Comic Book Capers is just about my favourite episode ever. I always got a kick out of Little Running Gag. XD

Really great job. :heart: I can never the details of his face right, but you did him perfectly. And I'm such a dork, I can quote exactly what Drake was saying in the two sketches on the right-hand side.

Top right: "and...why am I wearing a cowboy hat?"

Bottom right: "Whaaat?!" (after Launchpad asks him something about laundry detergent)

Yeah, I noticed that too. Not only does the animation style change from episode to episode, but some are more littered with continuity errors than others. Anyone else notice that in Quack of Ages Quackerjack spent the entire episode with orange hands instead of white?

I was the exact same way when I saw Darkwing Duck was now on DVD!
Very good sketches of Drake Mallard!
