DoodleMick-Caricatures

Here is a caricature that I just did for Facebook's "Caricaturama Showdown3000" This is Neil Patrick Harris, Not bad but I want to be better. My daughter and I just had a seminar and short course with Tom Richmond from MAD Magazine and I really need to work more on this even though it is just a hobbie for me.

After going through Section 2: Basic Shapes - I went through the exercises several times, both on paper and on the i-Pad. I also went to Amazon and purchased the Andrew Loomis book. Here are the screen shots and photos of my Secion 2.

I took a few of my older sketches and drew the underlying skull figure to see just how close some of my earlier drawings were. 

This was just for fun but it did open my eyes a bit.

3. Caricature Using the Head Construction Method

Today is Sunday Nov 17th, and I am working in my final project. (It's raining and nasty outside and I really don't have anything else to do) I am updating my notes and I chose to re-do a caricature piece of my parents that I did 5 years ago in Adobe Flash. This time I am using Adobe Photoshop CS5, and will utilizing some skills that I have learned in this course. Caricature art is just a hobbie for me, for I am not a professional artist. Stay Tooned, and I will do my best to have this done in a week or two.

P.S. I take my time, plus it helps me to relax from my day to day activities.

Wednesday Nov 20th: Not sure if anyone reads this, but I am just about done with the basic drawing, and simple flat coloring. I need to tighten up some linework, but I think I should have this done within a few days. I just do a little at a time, and I don't want to rush myself. I am hoping this will turn out to be my best piece so far. Stay tooned for some updates.

Here is the image I did several years ago.

Thursday Nov 21st...OK, it's looking pretty good so far, but I am not truely happy with the hair. I need to find a good way to draw hair. I am trying the Dodge and Burn Tools in Photoshop.

Friday Nov 22nd... OK, almost done. Little by little. I tried to record my progress with a demo of Camtasia, but it kept crashing on me, so sorry but no video on this one.

OK, I think I'm Done. Above is the caricature I did in 2008, and below is the one I just finished.

Oops, I just realized that I forgot the eye lashes on my mom. Sorry about that...
