I'll be drawing Caricatures at a 1-year-old's Party this Weekend. So I figured I'd look at some Anime for inspiration. Not that I would be drawing Anime. Actually, not sure How it would be affecting me. I just figure that Anime has a lot of Big Eyes that people like for their Babies.
Then I drew some random Baby faces just anywhere on the page. The first Caricature was still inspired by the Anime I looked at. I imposed those big oval Eyes onto the face, and it worked.
But it felt uncomfortable to just draw the same eyes for each baby. And the 2nd Caricature that I drew really didn't lend itself to that eye-shape. It still came out good, still looked like it was inspired by Anime.
Then there wasn't really any room left on the paper, but I wanted to draw more. I drew 2 more babies (small), and I dropped my Anime idea. It's a good idea, but it loses its appeal if I feel like I have to impose a standard Anime face onto each Baby. Babies, like all people, have all sorts of expressions and uniques.
I feel like it was good to expose myself to Anime. It might or might not affect my drawings.
