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.

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.

The fact that this was done with acrylic in itself is impressive. I have seen several caricature of Tom Richmond, so I am somewhat familiar in what he looks like, so even without a reference image, I am not sure I see the likeness. The painting itself looks very well done, but I am not seeing Tom. Do you have the reference image we can take a look at so we can give a more detailed critique. Thank you.

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?

Richard: I am also a life long fan of Mad Magazine and I love Tom Richmond’s book the Mad Art or Caricature. This course by Court and Proko is the best I have seen so far. I have tried several coursed through the years, and this one is by far the best, hands down. I too will be retiring in the next few months, and my plan is to work more on my caricature art as well. Good luck.

Yes this course is a great start. Court makes it really simple . As an extra resource get the mad art of caricature book by Tom Richmond I believe that’s his last name. He’s a former mad artist and caricature teacher
