To draw a caricature is to simply draw an image that is very distinguishable to your model/subject’s identity with or without being photographically identical. In early forms of this genre, the type of figures used was animals to represent a certain person. A painting or any type of artwork cannot be called a caricature if the piece does not involve an actual person, because involving a real person as a model is the critical part of this genre. TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction Quick ink sketches • Caricature of a Child • Head in Profile Establishing Tones/Shade Values Drawing a Face in a Proper Proportion Drawing Caricatures with a Pencil • Using Simple Reference Lines • Starting with a Facial Feature Exaggerating Proportions Caricature of a Girl - Amplifying facial expression Caricature Samples So start taking pictures of your friends or ask for a willing volunteer to be your model and begin drawing caricatures. If nobody is willing to be your model, it’s okay. I have few pictures of my friends here and they are more than willing to be models for practicing, mess up their facial features. It’s totally fine, they don’t care. Follow the steps in this book and become a caricature artist in a short amount of time. Learn how to draw caricatures easily without any formal training. This book will guide you how faces take form step by step, how to base it on a model and produce a caricature portrait with ease. This instruction booklet will teach you how to draw caricatures quickly with the use of a simple pen and marker, and then move on to using pencil and start conveying shade values and produce realistic portraits with cartooned bodies.
