more caricaturist caricatures






three new caricatures for y'all, one's done in marker, one's in pencil and the other in photoshop. just another step on my never ending quest for the maximum possible exaggeration. it's nice to practice on other caricature artists because i know they can take it, and give me good advice on what i can improve upon. once in a while i feel i should give the extreme exaggeration a rest and try to improve my rendering and technique, but then faces like these come along and i cant help but focus on the exaggeration and not the actual drawing/painting, i guess it's something to work for. oh well, at least these three liked their caricatures. ok, enough rambling.

here's the photos

Ya know, despite the extreme exaggeration the first and the third drawing's have a spot on likeness. I'm not quite sure about the one of neo, although it is a great drawing the likeness is sort of lost with how much your shrunk his face.

Crazy. I don't think they're spot-on likenesses, but you got a crazy caricature essence which not any other 18 year old would've reached. The second one's got some quality-ultra-free brushstrokes...

thanks guys, whether the likenesses are spot on or not, the subjects liked them, so that means i'm happy with them. thanks for taking a look and commenting
