Caricature... I suck at it. I try it all the time and success is a RARITY. I struggle and struggle. Sometimes, there is a rare person (usually friends or co-workers) that I can get right away, but if that doesn't happen, it almost NEVER happens... ever.
I did this drawing for my Step-brother's Wedding invite. It took me probably close to 100 attempts before I got close to "getting" him and probably around 50 for his lovely bride to be, and that one still sucks. Of course, this means nothing to you dear internet reader, for you have no idea what these people look like. To you, this is just another drawing.
I learned a lot doing this drawing. It's always good to step outside your comfort zone every now and then if you want to grow, and get better. Hopefully that will be the end result of this latest endeavour.
