Caricature Essentials From Start to Finish
Mark as Completed
Hello, this is a final sketch of Emmanuel Macron, president of France (with the thumbnails, the rough sketch and the abstraction).
Hello Everyone, I was really into Court Jones's Caricature course. I am still an amateur to understanding anatomy and I thought exploring caricature would be an engaging way to think about anatomy. I really think learning to exaggerate form and facial features is key to understanding likeness. So my caricature skills would help me make better photorealistic portraits. As such, I came up with a cool project to play around with caricature. I made caricatures of all my former high school classmates (just graduated!). I did these with charcoal pencils and they're each about 8" by 5". Obviously I used more than one reference photo but for privacy's sake and the photo limit I'll just post one of them. It was mostly an exercise in trying to capture the likeness. Personally I think I could have tried to exaggerate even more and push the likeness to its limits, but I'm curious to see what y'all think. Please let me know. Thanks. If you need to comment on a particular caricature just identify the number of the picture. Eg: Picture 3 Critique:... Picture 1 is the reference. All the other ones follow sequentially. PS: I also did a self caricature a few months prior to these ones. You can check that one out here: https://www.proko.com/s/t1mf Also let me know what kind of caricature art you like.
