If the Artwork doesn't please the Artist

Posted 1 day ago

Just messing around here while watching YouTubes. Drawing Caricatures as usual. Both of them drawn withOut a predraw, but one of them didn't come out looking Professional at all.

Hmmmm. What could I do if something like this ever happened at a Gig? I tried going back into it ~ to turn it into a Picture. I only used Marker and a Little Spot of Color ~ like in the Good Caricature that I drew today. Ummmm.... Nope. So I just added Lines ~ that made it look Scary.

I gave up on that Picture. I gave up on that piece of Paper. And I Quickly drew the last Caricature that I'm posting here today. I allowed myself a Little Bit of a Predraw. Aaaah. That's good. I like that Picture. I like that Experience

Exaggerated is Better

Posted Aug 2020

I'm baaaack. Haven't even had the upcoming Digital Caricature Event yet, and I'm already flipping away from that Tame Style I had been developing for it. I practiced tonight with a reference photo from a Party where I previously drew this woman with Markers.

Tonight I wanted to draw an Exaggerated Caricature again. Figuring I would just pop right back into it, I drew the first picture here. It wasn't too easy for me, and it looks as fussy as I was feeling.

So then I drew the 2nd Caricature here ~ Extremely Tame. And I was figuring that, hmmmm.... tame is the way to go. Easier. And Better.

But wait ~ I was trying to Exaggerate while still in the mindset of Tame. I dropped it, and drew this 3rd picture here. Exaggerated. EXAGGERATED CARICATURES ARE MUCH BETTER

I know ~ Black hair ~ Maybe I'll Color these Caricatures some other time.

Simplifying for Corporate Events

Posted Jul 2020

I've been practicing Simplifying Caricatures. I feel like this is a good style for Corporate Events and for other Parties where people are self-conscious. To get along with Today's society.

I am trying to stay with this simpler style throughout the picture. Not going in to my more Exaggerated stuff unless it feels right for the Party. I am trying to stay with this simpler style throughout the picture. Exaggeration only looks good if it's done with abandon. I do not feel happy with the results of trying to impose exaggeration onto tame.
