I wish I had time to post more

Posted Aug 2019

I have so many Big Parties booked ~ sometimes day after day. Barely time to sleep between Events, let alone post the pictures. But I was really On at this Event. The Art was just flowing.

Here I'm just posting 2 at random. Two of the Caricatures that I drew at this FIVE-AND-A-HALF HOUR Event. Then..... Good Night:

alone in my studio

When I sat down to draw tonight, I planned on practicing Fast Speed Exaggerated Caricatures. So I googled Faces in the town where I will be drawing at an Event tomorrow. (that's today already). Because I was hired specifically to draw Color Caricatures (tomorrow).

But here, alone in my Studio, procrastinating at every point of the activity because it's midnight and I'm in my own space and I feel totally affected by the Title of the first picture that I noticed.....

I spent too long on it. But it felt so good to draw it

Just Go With It

Posted Aug 2019

It's hard to find time to practice. I've been getting more and more serious with my practice, and tonight I felt like it's time to change focus. I felt like it's time to work on my Party Caricature Speed. So even though I felt like my first few practices were too big (when I make Portraits, if I make them larger than my open hand, they look grotesque), I didn't pause to figure out some approach that would make these Caricatures smaller. And before I was done, I got to feeling like these Giant Faces would be fine at an Event afterall. The Bold approach and the Bold Size make an Impact.

What I did was to take several Reference Photos from my website ~ Pictures of People that I already drew at Parties. I averted my eyes so I wouldn't see the Caricatures that I had drawn at the Parties. I just needed some Reference Photos for tonight's practice.

The more details I study, the more predrawing I want to do. But that slows me down at Parties. So I handled tonight's practice with No predraws.

The first few looked/felt amateur to me, but by not stopping to control the sizing, not stopping to get even more controlling, I managed to loosen up and get some decent Caricatures.

Got to Focus

Posted May 2019

Repeat Client for tomorrow's Event ~ Hey! That's today already.

I wanted to get some sleep, so I was just going to do a quick linework Caricature with this Event in mind, but..... this is what happens.

The Event is for drawing the Guests as Mermen and Mermaids. For a Beer Company. Not sure, but I think they will be providing the background bodies/scenes this time (they're providing the paper). But just in case, I felt like it wouldn't be a big deal to draw my own while practicing with a random face I found online. But messing around, not Really Doing it, just a waste of time. I finally had to focus.

And it is good that I do Something before an event. Honing my approach now, I'll do better and feel more confident when I'm actually At the Event. First, my Sizing was way wrong. Better now, but I still want to play around with sizes a little more. Then I had trouble turning my front-view body. I really must Look at sideview bodies to figure out how to turn a front-post that I might like. Then, well..... I couldn't get away with 'I'm not really going to give effort to the drawing because it's time to get some sleep' idea. If I want to draw a Caricature, I really have to Do it. The 3rd pass is finally usable. Now I know how to do it.

I'm baaaack. Woke up and I'm able to draw Caricatures again. I attached a small paper to last night's _________________. And as I predicted, I'm super ready to handle tonight's #Event. Only forgot the 'crown' ~ easy ~ but just fussing and complicating my Zone. I can do it when that's what I'm hired for, but I'm supposed to be a CARICATURE Artist. Based on what I actually See.
