Caricature I WIP

My first caricature... I know it's not a drastic change but it's weird to distort features... haha.

Anyhow I've been wanting to try caricatures for a while... I may or may not finish, but I got my cheapie screen video capture program figured now... Unfortunately the first file was weird but I noticed it pretty fast and fixed the settings.

Sooo for the first time you can watch me paint on youtube... XD

Part one - [link]
Part two - [link]

Anyhow this was a fun hour... enjoy :)

I'll upload some more videos later... for now I'mma sleep!

Excellent ! And you're right, it is all subjective... it is amazing to watch how same man can be differently well caricatured by different authors exploring different angles.

That looks really nice!
I've seen on the video you're painting upside down. Does it help you that much to concentrate on the form?
mynti's avatar
Yes :) I usually flip or paint upside down every time... traditionally or digitally. :nod:

pretty nice.. A lil bit more details around the eyes and it will be really cool
mynti's avatar
yeah... this is incomplete, it's why it's in scraps... I've been dabbling in caricature but I still have a ways to go before I'll finish one out to completion :) This is the one I've worked longest on so far though.

I kinda like him! You may want to study some political cartoons over at cagle or something. They've got some good examples of caricatures.
mynti's avatar
Doing and seeing are quite different... it's difficult to assess how far one should exaggerate and where to do it. I figured the nose, mouth and ears should be larger because those are the things I notice about him.... however, I could be wrong - it's all subjective.

Anyhow I have studied quite a few caricature sites, but I won't learn by looking...
