I've been trying to learn Caricatures. I have the Jason Seiler "Sketching" DVD and I'm using his Sketching technique. I also recently bought "A Caricaturists Handbook" by Jim Van Der Keyl. These are both great learning tools. This sketch is a copy out of the Book. not a Trace but a copy. I used a ballpoint pen, so all the imperfections are there. Jason Seiler recommends just sketching with the pen and leaving the working lines etc... in the drawing, that is what I'm doing. So, there are oddities that are hard to fix. It is just a sketch and I feel it gives them a little personality. Let me know your thought all comments negative or otherwise are appreciated.
It is done with ballpoint pen on a 6" x 8" Sketch pad. Ronnie
This is a sketch I did in memory of John Lennon. You'll notice sevel smaller drawings within it. I was trying different ideas with thumbnail sketches, none any good, then decided to practice Yoko's nose. I just kept going. done with ballpoint pen on 51/2"x8" sketchbook. I love your music John. you have my condolences Yoko and the rest of the families. Ronnie
