Top: Sketch samples for a prospective book project.
Bottom: Caricatures out of my family photo albums.
Well, just trying to mix it up on the bottom one...trying to exaggerate more, and approach things much looser...still not pleased.
I really hope that I am picked up for this book project...it is something I would really be interested in doing. The book is a how to draw tutorial on various subject matters. I want to become a teacher in the near future, and I think this would be a great start into breaking down/perfecting my teaching methodology into a clear, concise manner. We'll see what happens.
Speaking of great instruction/tutorials...I just bought Tom Richmond's book, "The Mad Art of Caricature: A Serious Guide to Drawing Funny Faces." My assessment after just looking at the art and tutorials...this book is a must have for every artist, illustrator, and especially, caricaturist!
I plan to use this book as a reminder and inspiration to help further my understanding of exaggeration as well as core principles.
Next on my list...Ron Lemen's DVDs on portraiture...must have.
Then...Joe Bluhm's book...long overdue.
