Though it's not as fully rendered as say, my de Niro piece, i've gotten this one to a point where i can stop fussing with it. It's tough ,as many caricaturists will tell you, to caricature a pretty woman. this was no exception, but everyone can be caricatured, you just have to find one little thing to mess with. although i recognized it too far into the process, Knightley has a really goofy looking grin that i couldn't quite capture from this angle. i initially decided to take a jab at her lantern jaw, equally difficult to capture. so this is a kind of amalgamation of those two characteristics. i feel it creates a pretty good likeness.
thanks for looking.
