Caricature 101 – How to Exaggerate
Mark as Completed
My suggestion for you to prepare for the next lesson is to familiarize yourself with the standard adult male head and create your own diagram including the appropriate marks showing the proportions and divisions.
Black Friday for the win! I'm looking forward to this course. Been wanting to purchase it for awhile. Here are 3 Loomis head drawings to get started with the class. Straight on isn't too bad, but 3/4 and profile need more work.
I'll take this class later in late summer 2023. For now, I like to share my piece here. It's my first attempt to draw caricatures of various people from different countries.
Hello Court, hello everybody, I'm very happy to join your classroom as I am fond of caricature and you are a maestro ! I would be very grateful if you look at my caricatures of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin. Thanks a lot. Best regards, Arno.
Here are my studies of the Loomis head in various positions: front view, profile and 3/4 view. Followed the books to be as acurate as possinle.
So I went down a bit of a rabbit hole trying to understand the average face. I suppose it's very complicated - the way we recognize faces and process visual information. There's too much biological, psychological, etc. science stuff that is beyond me but I discovered this thing called a composite portrait where different faces are used to create an average. A lot of interesting stuff. I don't know if it's in the premium course but could you make a video or discuss the idea of the "average face" more?
