I had a table at Supanova Sydney this last weekend! Drawing caricatures is one thing I love to do at conventions. I draw these with ink and copic markers in about 10 minutes, it’s always a fun challenge. In my style, they are more like ‘portraits’ but it regardless of what word I use, I basically just draw people my way. Here are some of my personal favorites!
The older I get and (hopefully) the better I get at art, the more opinionated I get over art things. One thing that I believe with all my heart is the importance of life drawing. It seems some beginner artists are wholly focused on just attaining technical skills, but there is an emotional side comes thru the acting, energy you convey in a drawing. When you draw people in the world around you, you should be observing their movements, their quirks, their character. Same with animals, they have traits we can relate to. I had an awesome sunday sketching at the zoo today, and of course, I couldn’t feel entitled to do a little preaching unless I put in the hours. Keep sketching Peace and later~
