Finally a couple good drawing days. I really think I'm starting to see the caricature now... I still find it hard oftentimes. And I disagree with my execution a lot of the time after the fact, but I think I'm finally getting some okay designs out of my live caricature stuff. The two things I still need to work on is to really get my shapes to fit together tightly, I get it sometimes I find, but other times they don't quite work. The other thing I really need to strengthen, I find, is my sense of structure. There are a ton of other things that I definitely need to improve... but those are my two biggest weaknesses... That and humor (the hard one, heh).

Just used peach in the shadows to unify a little bit.

I love the way light hits some people's faces.

Late at night is much harder, I find... but I like this night drawing for once. At least I like the drawing of the woman on the right better than some.

Two interesting children.

One of the cutest and most interesting people I've seen. This drawing isn't as good as the second drawing I did of her, I don't think. But it started the first good drawing day off. And she was absolutely fucking adorable too.

Really dig the bottom girl. Could imagine her being adorable. Innocent. I'd like to see you do more subdued bg's to some of these drawings. Let the faces pop more. The purples and yellows and greens are mudying up the overall feel I think.

I agree with toon. The faces just kind of blend into the drawings with nothing popping out telling me to look at it.

I dig the structure in the face in the top one.

Also, The eyes on the middle left girl are priceless.

keep kickin' it Ed :)

Thanks for the input. I started completely dropping the background and I really like it. Sometimes I'll throw in some dark brown to push some things out but for the most part I'm starting to keep the background completely neutral.
