More live caricatures


This girl's family was super nice. I drew all three of them, but this one turned out the best for likeness and exaggeration.

These two had great faces.

Live Caricatures! Plus long promised prints! AND MORE!

Yes, after a long time, I've started taking pictures of caricatures I've drawn in the park again. I've been feeling a little unmotivated to improve art at work, so maybe if I take pictures more, I'll start feeling like I need to progress.

Pros: I actually like this one. I think it looks like the kid, especially around the eyes.

Cons: One of the eyebrows looks like it's about to float off somewhere. I don't know why I did that.

I drew this girl today. She wanted me to draw her striking a pose, but I don't do that stuff (poses/making faces suck. The people go all bug-eyed trying to keep them, and it makes it so I don't have the freedom to do what I want with their features.) She seemed a little sulky, and when I asked to take her photo for my blog, she just sat like that and didn't respond, so I took it for a yes. I'm really not sure if she liked it - but her friends thought it was hilarious, so I'm happy.

Pros: I like the glasses and the lips.

Cons: Messy coloring and I fudged the jawline a little.

This one I'm just including because it's probably the most adorable thing I've ever drawn. The girl had fallen asleep by the time I finished it, so I don't have a reference, but she was just as cute as it looks.

Pros: It's so CUTE. Look at the bee - LOOK AT IT.

Cons: The feet were not planned well.

I'm going to tack on the two prints I've mentioned but kept forgetting to post. They aren't photographing well, so I've given up and here's the best you're getting. Deal with it.

Believe it or not, the colors are a little more florescent on the original.

Another take on a favorite theme of mine. My first print.

And, just to make this post even longer, I'm throwing in a caricature of Demetri Martin I did but never got a background on.
