The Best Bar Mitzvah Ever!

Posted 6 days ago

Not to forget the other Bar Mitzvot, but at the moment, this Bar Mitzvah is feeling like the Best Bar Mitzvah ever! I had had such a good time. Great people, good lighting, music not too loud.....nobody trying to 'interview' me while I was drawing. We just Enjoyed the activity. We just Enjoyed the Party.

Here are photos of of few of the Caricatures that I drew:

Posted 9 days ago

They really are so Entertaining. Feels great to hahaha look at people.

and the picture that includes 2 drawings? Just a quick thing that I did. Turns out that I like how this simple drawing style comes out. Just the answers. Looks clean and fresh.

Pretty

Posted 10 days ago

It's sad how often I hear "Make me Pretty" when I'm drawing Caricatures at Parties. Heck, even if I knew what You thought looks pretty.... or even if You even knew Why you wanted to look That way.... wasn't I supposed to make it look like You? So if you think you look pretty, then my Caricature makes you look pretty. But if you don't.....

I feel like what works in those instances, when a Guest requests that I 'make her look pretty', is to draw pretty Lines. So that's what I did tonight. Based on random photos (not necessarily pretty or not ~ they all had these deadpan expressions ugh), I intended to draw pretty lines. This is what I came up with.

Hmmmm.... Inspecting them, I'm wondering if exaggerations (like the big eye in the 3rd picture) do Not work with this line-approach? Or is it fine since I made pretty lines? What do you think?

It's the Journey ~ Not the destination. With Good Sight-Seeing along the Way

Posted 14 days ago

So let's see where all this lip studying has brought me. I drew this Caricature tonight based on a random photo.

I see improvement caused by the studies from last night. I like the line quality and understanding.

But I do have to say that I paused, and gave it extra time to concentrate on applying my studies. Just a few moments, but it feels like I wouldn't allow that extra time to myself at an Event.

I figure that if I practice it enough in my Studio, it will come out automatically when I'm hired to draw at Parties.

then...... I printed out several copieS of this linework, and I imagined different types of lighting onto them
