So, what do these sketches prove?
I still have much to learn; am not quite there yet. But, on it's whole, I think that these drawings are improved from my earlier Donald sketches.

Those two sketches are taken from frames in the 1951 short, 'Lucky Number'.
This is Donald as seen on the poster for the 1943 short, 'Donald's Tire Trouble'.
Here's a frame of Fred Moore's animation right from the film. Though I drew it off of a rough drawing out of 'Illusion of Life'.
And how about another pose taken from 'Illusion of Life'?
I'll wrap this up with a pose right out of the 1938 short, 'Donald's Golf Game'.
The 'Illusion of Life' text: that's a good place to look for top-notch drawings to construct from.

'Pinnochio' is such a sacred animated film, with incredible drawings and characters, that I just had to practice cartoon construction with it.Again, here's Norm Ferguson's (with John Lounsbury) Honest John, from the sequence where he and Gideon are meeting with the Coachman. He's saying the line, "And who do we have to eh, 'slices across throat'"
Then, I went over to a beat from the Pleasure Island sequence. It's where Ward Kimball's Jiminy Cricket is at his huffiest.
"And what am I?"
Hope you all got your copies of the Platinum Edition of this. I primarily used it for the frames to draw off of.
