April

These drawings are from April 1-2. I was trying to heavily exaggerate, but in hindsight some of them are fairly tame, compared to what I could have done with them. Overall, pretty good.


The boy on the left (above pic) was funnier-looking to me than I drew him, in comparison to his brother. I wish I had his eyes farther apart and his neck skinnier.



This british teen (above) was very appreciative (as was his family) of the exaggeration and humor in this one. His sister came back for one later...


REJECT - REJECT - REJECT - REJECT - REJECT - REJECT


Another happy British kid. They are so great.

...and the sister of the long-neck long-haired kid. She wasn't quite as pleased, but laughed. This one in particular could have been pushed further, but I enjoyed her uniqueness just the same.

This was the next-to-last sketch of the day (supposed to be my last, but I had an excited couple ask me to stick around). I felt something a little extra in her face, and was excited to draw. The photo of the last drawing didn't come out too well (dark) but it wasn't QUITE as exciting as this one, so no big loss. :) Another great family - VERY loud, but very happy.

I'm drawing all day today, before a week off, so I'll hopefully have more pics up soon.

I love the eyes on that last one. That's fantastic!

So on that reject one I see some lay-in lines, how much time do you spend laying it in vs. the overall drawing? It definitely seems to pay off artistically.

Terrific! I like how you replace any logos with that smiley face guy. I wish we could see more of your process, that reject with just ink looks interesting, but I guess documenting the process would interupt the client's time. Perhaps a caricature from a photo, that way we could observe your techinique? Great as always.

First I would like to say how much I enjoy these caricatures.You talkin about my side hurting! I laughed for quite a while.Even though I am a wildlife artist you can see some of my work here http://www.fwdesign.org/I use to draw caricatures at Universal studios florida. I enjoy the chair drawing even better then studio caricature. It's a whole new ball game:) Some of the best drawings were the rejects. Being that the public is visualy illiterate!! I am sure your colleagues enjoy taking them home. Keep posting. It makes me want to get back in the chair!!!

I was wondering why this REJECT was born so early?
