Way back when I was in elementary school, there was a kid who could draw Fred Flintstone really well. I was instantly impressed (and jealous) at how easily he could dash off a sketch of Fred or characters from The Wizard of Id or just about anything. No idea if he pursued a career in art, but to me his ability was already amazing in 4th grade.
Here's my take on Fred Flintstone. A pencil sketch and a more fully-rendered version. I made him a little more cartoony and goofy and chunky looking than the "official" Fred we all know today. What do you think?
