Caricatures on two wheels!

Sometimes, by pure coincidence, I get different clients who will order similar things at the same time. Last week I had orders for a man on a motorcycle at the same time as an order for another man on his bicycle. One is for Father's Day, the other is a graduation gift. That they are going the same direction is coincidental because the direction is based on the angle of their faces in the photos they sent me.

Live Caricature Comparison

Sometimes I take photos of people holding their caricatures at gigs to have a record of the drawings I do, however, often the people hold the picture with a different look on their face than what I saw when I drew them. At a recent gig I drew Dave, and he posted his drawing on myspace and sent me a link. From his photos, you can see the expression that I tried to capture.

You can see that I exaggerated his long face shape and mouth. I think I also captured his far-away eyes! Considering that it was done in about three minutes, I think I did a decent job with this one.

Let me know what YOU think!
