Three Caricature Related Items, part 2

This is the one called Sam Gorrie. She is very nice girl, and from Canada and with blue hair. I've drawed her a few times before. She hasn't seen this one yet.

Here we see a photo of a caricature I did at the Coffee Amici session when I was back in Ohio. Sadly I don't have a photo of the girl. I'm very happy with how this turned out. I like the mass of her head and the way her eyes nose and mouth look. If you go to the Coffee Amici website, in the photos section there, they actually got a subcategory called "caricatures" now. There aren't any photos of the people, though, but anyway, moving right along.

This was a preliminary drawing I did of Colton. I had to get the caricature out of me before I went and did the portrait. I don't even know if it looks like him much, but no matter. The photo that this is drawn from is a really good one, and I just wanted to dig into those shapes. I bet alot of you drawers out there know what I'm talking about. You see a good photo where the darks and lights really show you exactly what's going on with the forms. You just gotta dig right in.
