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.

American Idol Couple

Posted Jul 2019

Time to get serious now. Turning my focus towards Engaged Couples. Because tomorrow (that's kinda today already) ~ tomorrow I have a Big Event to draw Caricatures at an Engagement Party.

Lol ~ like serious? Got to be a Caricature Artist to understand what that means when we're drawing pictures that don't Look serious.

I usually prefer to draw Individuals than Couples. But today, after drawing This caricature, it turns out that I'm hoping to get some Couples at today's Party. Seeing people Together can be fun.

I had Googled "Engaged" to come up with a Reference photo to warm up with. The first one I saw was of these American Idol Contestants ~ Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner

My Computer was not available

Sometimes my Computer wasn't available to me for the past few weeks. Oh. Tedious process to bring each Individual Picture through my IPad ~ so I just didn't feel like posting whole Parties when that happened. It would have taken oh hours!

But I wanted to post Something. So I ended up posting just one or two at a time ~ each time from a different Party. Hmmm.... there's something nice about seeing all these different people brought together on this page. From different Parties. So many people. So many different people
