Caricature video


Firstly, my sincerest apologies to the subject Erica. Her caricature turned out a bit harsh (it ended up looking more like Queen Latifah). But hopefully you can enjoy it as an insight into my caricaturing process.



A little something extra...originally the video went longer as I added more colours, but I ended up preferring the monotoned version, so I edited the rest out. But here's the artwork anyway.

I agree with you, the monotone version of the drawing is more appealing. Thanks for putting this up,I am always interested in seeing another artist's approach to drawing caricature. Shows you there are a lot of ways to skin a cat.

thanks for the words on my blog..

Chris, I stumbled on to your blog by accident. I really like the tutorials section, as well as the variety in your gallery. I am definitely looking forward to future posts!
So in summary, thanks for the positive inspiration!

Hey chris, you capture her likeness, I know Erica in person I had her in a few life drawing classes and she always has that weird look on face, she's a strange one! Keep rocking those videos! it's the next thing to looking over your shoulder when your drawing.

I'm not sure if you mentioned this before, but what program are you using? ... and, are you sketching in layers or one big flat canvas?

Dammit! That photo of Erica's was the one I was gonna attempt (I love that arched eyebrow), but now that I've seen yours, Chris--I'm ruined!

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Pauk- Done in Photoshop. There are a few layers involved- 1. A layer for the light blue sketch 2. A layer for the pencil drawing. 3. And finally a layer for the colour background and highlights.

Hey Berndart

I use a 6x8 Wacom Intuos. I tried the Grapphire but their sensitivity wasn't good enough.

I visited Austria last year (my father's Austrian). Beautiful place. Didn't get to see the mountains, but Vienna was amazing.

Wow. That's really impressive. I still haven't wrapped my head around doing work entirely on a Wacom tablet.
