One pencil, one ink

A couple more caricatures from the Caricaturists' caricatures thread over at Drawing Board.

Both styles are great. I prefer the crisp look to the ink.

Chris - I am tempted to say that you are a "National Treasure" but this is the internet - and I a way up in Canada (wow it is getting cold! - winter is a coming...). You are a great inspiration - supremely talented, and yet deeply supportive of aspiring talents. Your work is awesome, your community spirit is doubly awesome!!!

Love the first one.. not for colors but there is a lot of lines and things that we don't find in over caricature... that's my opinion (strange but mine) ;)
Good work

effin' A. I love both, but really, I think I gotta go with number two as well; the ink and line work really wins me over.

I love the linework in the second one too, but that first one... what a phenomenal drawing! I may not be able to ink like that second one right now, but I can see myself reaching that one day. The first one, I don't know if I could ever so perfectly blend realistic drawing and caricature.

Hey Chris!
Love them both, but in my opinion, the top one is particularly good. The skin texture and her face expression are stunning! The other one is really good too.

Amazing work, as usual!

Marcos- Thanks! One of the best lessons I've learnt about inking is not to be afraid of fast, spontaneous strokes. An inaccurate loose stroke is better than a painstakingly drawn accurate line. There's much more life in the former.

Francisco- Thanks! This was different from my other pencil caricatures in that I tried to reduce the reliance of outline as much as possible and just rely on shading to describe form.

Amanda- Yeah I really mashed their faces up in these. Especially the second (partly due to making a lot of bad exaggeration choices). Thanks.
