Tame and Exaggerated Versions of the Same Prom Girls

Posted 22 days ago

Hi! Exercising switching between Tame and Exaggerated Caricatures tonight. I used some Prom pictures that I found on the web as references.

I did very well with the switching tonight. I had a good feel for both approaches. But I did all the Tame Caricatures first. And Then I did all the Exaggerated Caricatures. Some day perhaps I will practice switching back and forth each time.

Exercising the Switch

Posted 23 days ago

It feels useful to be able to Switch back and forth between my Tame Caricature approach and my Exaggerated Caricature approach at Events. There are several reasons why this ability comes up ~ so I don't want to be limited by my mood.

I usually draw in my Exaggerated style ~ because that energizes and attracts Guests at Events. Not boring ~ we never know what we're going to get until it comes out. So I figured I would practice my Tame style tonight ~ something I usually only do if I have to.

The first one I drew ~ the curly-haired girl wearing shorts ~ felt fine. And the 2nd 2 were okay too. But the last one ~ ugh. I've seen other artists handle whole Parties with crap like that ~ but it would just send me right to the dessert table, if you know what I mean. I would not want to be drawing like that at Events.

So I switched to my Exaggerated style for that one. Much better. But I was only reacting to the Non-Tameness of it. I could have done even better if I remembered to feel some of the other aspects of my Tame approach. Tired ~ middle of the night ~ but I feel like I know one more thing to try when I'm making the Change from Tame to Exaggerated
