Gift Caricature #2

This was a caricature for one of my wife's good friend's son Cameron. He is one of the happiest babies I've never met. Always smiling and full of life. Truly a blessing.

I'm almost ashamed to admit that I initially drew a sketch of Cameron almost a year ago. Either I work that slow or time flies that fast. Nevertheless, I finished the caricature and kinda like the outcome. I'm still playing with different styles of caricature but I think this style is worth exploring some more.

"An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up."
~Proverbs 12:25

Oh. My. Goodness.
THAT IS STELLAR!! Man, way to go! What do you mean you 'kinda like the outcome'? That pic is crazy-good!

I'm still trying to figure out a style of caricature too. There are just too many cool styles that I want to get good at, but need time to concentrate on each single style to learn it. I just keep bumping from one to the other, though - cartoony, realistic, painterly, etc. Anyhow... end of useless post. :)

Hey Steph you are preaching to the choir. I've seen so many artist master so many techniques and mediums I find myself getting lost trying them all out. At some point I guess you have to stop looking at everyone elses work and start defining what your work looks like. I'm glad you like the picture tho. I look forward to doing more here soon.

The young gent looks great Chris. I can tell he has a clean skin tight fade. You captured his almond eyes, gums, and teeth very well...I love it.
