Caricatures!


Another one! This is for Elise and our friend Eric. They're both awesome people.

I drew people at the airport today while I was sitting at my gate. Sometimes I feel nervous/awkward when drawing on site because I worry people will be creeped out if they catch me staring them down and documenting their every move (kinda). Today I did not feel that way. I don't know why... maybe I'm just more comfortable with it by now. It was nice. 

Here's a detail:

And I kept working on caricature. This time I tried drawing myself - which I think is the hardest thing to do in caricature work. You have to be really honest and critical with your look, and when you see yourself every day in the mirror it is easy to forget what distinct features you have and just take them for granted. I think I got past that after two tries, and I ended up with this:
hawt.

Caricatures from Dinner.





Drew these of my friends at dinner today. Top to bottom they are Addie, Jared, Nathan, and Jeff. I played with a few different approaches, and I think I like Nathan the best (the one with the stubble and girly eyelashes, shazam!).  

The more I look at these, the more I think they could go even further. Some are more on the realistic side, but a couple are heading in the right direction. I might revise some of them and do a follow-up post. 

Oh, and sorry about the somewhat shaky photo quality. I should work on steadying my hand.
