charicature goodness… or not


To compensate for my ridiculous slacking on the Sparky front, I agreed to do a commissioned charicature of somebody for my old boss (going away present for the guy being depicted).

I don’t know that it really looks like him (it kinda does), but I think it came out pretty good nonetheless.

I haven’t done one of these in a while so it was fun to see if I could get it together.

I have to admit, I had trouble getting started, since I don’t do these very often, but after I had a sketch that I thought was going in the right direction, things started coming together pretty nicely… which only took about 5 sketches total. I did have to re-do the entire head as a separate sketch, since I just couldn’t get the first version working. Somehow I got it working better when I just drew another head on a separate page… go figure.
