Drawing Caricatures
Caricature is an old-age art form that uses exaggeration to make a satirical or humorous point. It is, however, underpinned by strong technical principles. 'Drawing Caricatures' explains those principles through step-by-step instruction moving from observation to simple aspects of drawing, and then to caricaturing the face feature by feature. Topics covered: Tools, mediums and materials from quill to digitized imaging. Understand different types of caricature and their role. 'Drop the detail' and identify three key features to capture a likeness. Break down a caricature into features. Add bodies, artefacts and props. Understand the model's character as an integral part of the picture. Commercial avenues for caricaturists. AUTHOR: Doug Eyre started his career as a commercial artist, but his lightening sketches and natural ability to capture a likeness in thirty seconds catapulted him into the world of caricature art. His rapport with people and his highly skilled, intuitive style made him an instant success at exhibitions, conferences and corporate events. His work has received international acclaim and been published in an array of journals. He is a regular teacher of drawing and caricature. 165 caricatures and 11 b/w photos
