Horse Knees

Bobby London who drew Dirty Duck and Popeye had a facebook entry for this video.. Claiming the artist, Jon Gnagy was his only "art school."

It's got a ton of his related art tutorials on the right of the page.

Great stuff but you notice he's calling the horse's ankle it's knee. Maybe in 56 you didn't go to school on comparative anatomy. Or maybe he was using simple points for kids. Still, he's given out info that says horses legs bend backwards from what we expect in a knee joint. Funny also that he makes a point of the sharp angle of the "joint" at the top.
