My caricature

My first time drawing my self as a caricature belive it or not.
It shows drawing from one to three, each drawing is very loose and sketchy. The first one is always more of a portrait, the second one I feel more comfortable and move things around, I push and pull features around to see what works the best.
The third one, I keep pushing features around, kicking them, boucing them around, but still maintaining a loose line. I pick the features that worked on number two and put them on number three, and if I can I try to exagerate them untill it bothers me.

You can draw me at the Caricaturist Caricature thread at the Drawing Board. (my mug is on page 60) There are a lot of great artist there, so go check it out.

It's a long way between one and three.

Yeah, congrats Heri. Very educational.

Great likeness too.

You're not an easy guy to draw (believe me I've tried and failed already on numerous occasions.)
