How to Draw Caricatures: Head Shapes | Tom's MAD Blog!

How to Draw Caricatures: Head Shapes | Tom's MAD Blog! | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

"When I first started drawing live caricatures I felt that the eyes were the most important part of the face, and I put a lot of emphasis and focus on them. I still think the eyes are a crucial element, but over the years I’ve come to believe that the head shape is the most important part of a caricature.


I talk endlessly about seeing shapes within the features and the face, and the importance of drawing those shapes accurately to capture likeness and to create a convincing drawing. Again, it’s difficult to teach anyone to “see”… that ability is developed over time via practice and hard work. Still, there are a few techniques and tricks I have learned that can help artists to better see what is in front of them, and better interpret it in their drawing."

Use cartoon charaters' drawings to identifty shapes. It is the funny way to let children draw shapes by themselves.
