500 Faces I have known...
Ok... I've been doing this from some time now... Apart from being a part of Julia Kay's Portrait Party, I have been practicing drawing portraits and caricatures of people whom I have known.. I didn't post them in till now, because I wasn't really sure whether I should.. Caricatures being a delicate subject, may hurt a few of them..
But, since I have so religiously been making it now since the past two months, I would rather post them in and have some critiques on them.. I would love it if you guys could tell me where I could improve (e.g., most of my caricatures still look like a portrait.. I have to work on decreasing the detailing I guess..).
So I am creating the Self Project which I shall call '500 Faces I have known' and shall keep drawing faces that are familiar to me, so that I improve my portrait, caricature and cartoon making skills..
They will have less celebrities though.. The reason..? They have been caricatured one time, one way or another, and I don't want to be influenced by those images when I am caricaturing them.. So maybe here and there, but not much...
Why 'Faces I know'? ..Because then other people who also know them can tell me whether I am on the right track..
Why 500? ..Hmm, I read here that I would have to make some 500 bad caricatures before I am able to really start noticing the subtle things that hide inside an 'ordinary' face.
I start posting here with my own caricature! :) :)
