The Same Person!

Posted Jul 2020

Going through unposted photos of Caricatures that I drew Before this pandemic situation. I felt chagrinned when I came across the Caricature that I drew in the 3/4 view ~ because it looked familiar. Concerned ~ was i actually one of those Artists who always draws the Same Thing? I never thought I was........

Then, laughing. Ahah! I remember now. It looks like something I drew before because it was the Same Person. Actually, two Very Different Drawings ~ of the Same Person. I found the front-view photo in a different post on my website. Apparently I drew the Same Person at two different Events.

always a Happy Experience

I got real good

Posted Jul 2020

Drawing along last night. Trying to Simplify my Caricatures again. I wonder if you can tell where it kicked in. I wonder if you can tell where i got 'good'.

I didn't want to stop. I was on a roll. But I had to stop sometime.

Figured that when I came back to it, I would know the answers. But aghk no. Tonight it took me several drawings of One Face before it even felt passable to me. I was able to see the Exaggeration, but wasn't drawing it successfully. I'm not going to waste our time posting what I drew tonight.

This wouldn't be a problem at a Party. If I wasn't happy with my new Simple Style, I could easily flip back into my old Exaggerated style with the Predraws. And I would feel so happy with that, that I would wonder why I ever considered changing it.

But I love this new style

Simplified With Exaggeration

Posted Jul 2020

Simplified Caricatures. I figured it out.

In these pictures, you can see my path.

The first one was an attempt at simplification. I didn't like it. So I tried it again. Still missing something. Third attempt ~ very ugly. Then I went about my Other activities.

Had a 2-minute break, so I tried to simplify again. I quickly drew the 4th one in front of the first 3 ~ but I didn't bother pulling up the reference photo.

Got back to it again now. Ahah! This one is Just Right. Exaggeration is still needed even when drawing simplified Caricatures.
