Caricatures








Caricatures are something I never do, but I think I might do more, after having finished this attempt. I don't think it was particularly successful (but fun, nevertheless.) The middle one kinda fell flat, but I'm not altogether unhappy with the first and third one.

They were done with marker, scanned and color added in Photoshop. Part of a caricature thread that has been going on for nearly a year and many pages, over at the Drawing Board forum.

I've been diggin' your last few portraits and caricatures!
Particularly those Emily Booth's drawings, I do hope to see more if you're so inclined.

Do you still live at the same address? I have to send you a little something, let me know.

Abrazos,

Process Junkie: Many thanks, Alberto! So happy you stopped by!

Janie: Hey, hi! Wow...I'm happy you're pleased with them; I am a novice at caricatures so I fear I didn't truly capture you, but thank you! :)
