Noah Elkrief

Middle of the night. Taking a break. Watching You Tube.

So my pen gets moving. Mindlessly drawing what I see.

Ready to Draw More People than I Can

Posted Feb 2020

I recommend Estimating 10 Faces per Hour. But I try to accommodate my Clients when they ask me to draw Faster.

Obviously, I can't do what I can't do. But there are ways to get more people drawn (if they all sit for their Caricatures very quickly ~ I can't very well Rush the Guests). I can approach the Artwork very simply. I can just draw Lines without Shading. I can skip the Color. And I feel that the way to keep them Simple is to just draw what I see ~ with not much in the way of Artist's Interpretation.

Still, the Artwork takes on a Quality of its own. Not the Whole Symphony, but a Simple Beauty in its Simplicity. Kind of Classy.

Preparing for Baptism

Posted Jan 2020

I'm anticipating the Baptism where I will be drawing Caricatures this weekend. So I warmed up by drawing a Caricature of a random Baby's photo that I found online.

Then I chose random photos to make a Family Caricature with the Baby. I like the way the shapes of the faces fit together:

Then a tried out an unusual choice for Coloring it. I used home colors for the Shading on one face, and then I used Gray marker for the shading on another face ~ within the Same picture. I feel glad that I try things out at home. In this case, my mixed approach didn't Ruin the picture, but I still don't feel like it was a good idea. I hope I don't try this at the Party.

It's either One of the Other. Either Black/White Picture with Gray Shading. Or Color Picture ~ no gray shading.

I won't give it up

Posted Jan 2020

Drawing Caricatures. Just picked up a marker tonight ~ strokes easily gliding across the paper ~ It felt good.

As much as I love the new Digital media, it still feels fussy to use compared to markers and color sticks
