Cartoon Skeleton

         For one of our first projects in Visual arts, we chose a cartoon character and drew a skeletal system for them. Before this project we drew human skeletons and were supposed to incorporate the different bone structures into our character. I chose Stitch from Disney's Lilo and Stitch. His skeleton is exaggerated in many places, but still contains all of the basic structures of the skeletal system. His scull is large in comparison to his body, and his eye sockets and nose are large, to fit his wide eyes and round nose. Stitch has a short torso and short legs, so he does not have as many ribs as a normal animal and his pelvis is not as tall. it took a lot of creativity and imagination to think of a way to fit all of the bones in his short stocky body, but i think it was a fun project and a great way to be introduced into Visual Arts.
