first caricature by blackyuna first caricature by blackyuna
Week 3 entry for :icon52weekproject:
(and another cellphone pic, my computer is still busted, apologies for the poor quality, sowee...)

anyway, this is my first caricature. I've never dine a caricature before and I've always wanted to try it, so here I tried it!

I know it's cheating that I just copied Ben 10's body and placed a caricature head of my nephew but then again I have no idea what I'm doing... I also tried to put this week's theme which is Action/Movement and I tried doing that with the background. I'm also mixed about this though, I'm happy with the results yet I think it looks like a fail... what do you think? ^^;

approx time: 5 hrs
used:
~ bond paper
~ color pencils
~ black gel pen (0.38)
~ black felt tip pen

I'll link a better scanner version once my computer is fixed...

Ha, I think it's cool that your nephew looks like Ben from the show. My only critique (and this is with all caricatures) is that the head is so big. I know that's part of the style, but sometimes it just doesn't help the feel of the piece. After all, the point of a caricature is to capture someone's personality. Good job for a first try though!

Ben10 is my nephew's fave character, actually I was thinking of doing Iron Man since he loves that too but Ben 10 is easier hehe (cheating again)

thanks for the critique, I really don't know what I was doing and basically copying or imitating other people's caricature style. I'll take that idea when I do my next caricature. Thanks again!! =D
