COVID'19 / Caricatures!!!

We are all under a LOT of stress, obviously.

We just got through one of the worst years in World history, arguably the most brutal in modern times, and it has taken a huge toll on so many of us. A horrifying illness has made millions of us extremely ill and devastated hundreds of thousands of families. Businesses failed, jobs went away — many forever — and statistics show large jumps in domestic abuse, some levels of suicide and other frightening areas.

In our little world we are — surprisingly — doing okay on almost everything, it seems. Not bad on health so far. I am able to squeeze a quarter out of three nickels and keep getting a small break here and there on Art Works. So far, so good.

A caricature is a rendered image showing the features of its subject in a simplified or exaggerated way through sketching, pencil strokes, or through other artistic drawings. Caricatures can be insulting or complimentary and can serve a political purpose or be drawn solely for entertainment - BUT MORE IMPORTANT THEY BRING US HUMOUR.
Caricatures of politicians are commonly used in editorial cartoons, while caricatures of movie stars are often found in entertainment magazines.

In literature, a caricature is a description of a person using exaggeration of some characteristics and oversimplification of others

The term is derived for the Italian caricare—to charge or load. An early definition occurs in the English doctor Thomas Browne's Christian Morals, published posthumously in 1716.

Expose not thy self by four-footed manners unto monstrous draughts, and Caricatura representations.

I am blessed to be a caricature artist myself, for more than 5 years now. And there are a lot of little tricks and work-arounds that you pick up along the way, as you do in any job.

In this Blog I would like to give you some Tips n trick on drawing Caricatures....

Drawing Human FacePicture
Every component of the body begins with a simple foundation.
The human face is made-up of five simple shapes.

Manipulating the foundations of the five simple shapes is the largest component in drawing your caricatures.
Exaggerations, distance, size and angles, are of the upmost important features in your drawings.


Relationships between angles, sizes, distances in the various faces you are drawing will always be different.
It is must easier to start with the basic five shapes and work from there.
Keep It Simple.

Look closely at the relationships between size, distance, and angles in your exaggerations.
