In this course, you’ll learn the core concepts of caricature. You’ll use concepts like exaggeration and abstraction to take a rough sketch to a fully developed caricature drawing. The exercises we’ve created will help improve your visual memory and even trick you into drawing stronger exaggerations.
My version of samual l. jackson from the course. I am getting faster also it takes me still a lot of time.
Here's a caricature I did of comedian Bryan Callen. I've nearly completed Court's Caricature course and will be revisiting some of the early lessons to reaffirm some of the foundational skills of caricature exaggeration. critiques welcome and Ty.
I followed a few of the lessons in this course a while back for a self caricature. I didn't really spend too much time on each video. Kind of just rushed through because I was spending too much time on it. I really think studying caricature is really helpful in understanding likeness as much as anatomy is. Here is my reference, rough sketch comprehensive (in charcoal) and my final drawing (graphite pencil). Personally, I feel like I couldn't quite translate the success of the sketch onto the final piece (maybe I got lucky?). I also could have tried to exaggerate more. I particularly want to know what to do if I can't quite get my final to be as good as my sketch, but all critiques and feedback are welcome.
Caricature of caricaturist Tom Richmond, Acrylic on cardboard. I did this painting for Facebook group, Coronacature.
I'm new to drawing have been a fan of Mad magazine since I was a kid. Recently retired and want to develop a hobby. Will this course be a good start?
