Huh ~ Makes me wonder why I keep studying/practicing. My previous Party Caricatures were fine.

I had thousands of emails piled up here. Today I tried to clear some away to clear up Space on my Computer. Glad I noticed at least One email that had some interesting Pictures. Opened it, and found four Caricatures of Women that I had drawn at a Party back in 2015. That's 4 Years ago. It was quite fine. I particularly like the way I indicated the woman's body in the Black/White one ~ the body just showed up by (default?).

I booked a last-minute Event just a couple of hours ago. To draw at a Party of Teenage Boys. Just to keep my Zone, I decided to draw some teenage boys. So I Googled it and found a random photo of 4 teenage boys to use as reference. I quickly drew them ~ because it's almost 3am, and I want to go to sleep.

Looking. At first I wondered ~ Is it any better than the ones I drew 4 Years ago? It is more Active. But is that Better? Or just Different. I draw differently every day.

Then I realized that it's like going to the gym. Just because I Can do it, doesn't mean that I don't have to do it regularly to 'stay in shape'.

Party Memories

Posted 10 days ago

When I look through the Thousands of Photos that I haven't had time to post here yet, I can still remember the Parties where I drew them. Even though I go to several Parties every week. Even though I may have only been with these people for 5 or 10 minutes. Our interactions still affect me.

I'll post one of them now. I drew this Caricature several Years ago. At a House Party. I was drawing in the Living Room. Practically everybody in this Family was Blonde and So Beautiful ~ and I felt very comfortable with them. I figure that if I can remember the Party when I see the Caricatures, for sure Party Guests remember the Event when they see (or display) the Caricatures. Good times:

I can visualize 3/4 view even if I'm shown Front View

Posted 30 days ago

It's hard to do, but I can do it.

Tonight I wanted to hone my clarification between Tame Caricatures and Exaggerated Caricatures. I'm really developing a very good ability to control this. I set out to draw Tame Caricatures, and they stayed that way. I drew Tame Caricatures. Based on some Photos that I had taken at Events.

But they were all Front Views. When we're involved with people, they have a habit of turning straight toward us. I wondered if I could draw 3/4 view Caricatures even if a person was looking directly at me. It's hard ~ takes a little more time and effort if the Guest doesn't sit in 3/4 view when I want to draw 3/4 view. But I can do it!

Hmmm..... Sometimes the Caricature looks better in the Front View, and sometimes it looks better in the 3/4 View. I feel like the best way to use this skill (if I have the nerve to do it at a Party) ~ is to choose the easiest way to get a good Caricature. I would only choose to draw a Different View than the one that I actually see ~ If I don't feel like the Front View has anything interesting in it. Or if I'm getting tired of drawing Front Views.

I'll frequently make Changes at intervals throughout the Event to keep myself interested. Because if the Artist isn't interested in what she's drawing, usually nobody else will be either. This could be just one more of the many different things that I change up when needed.
