I got a sketchbook for Christmas a long time ago, so I finally decided to do something with it, and I'm trying to teach myself to draw caricatures. I've wondered before how you can distort the hell outta someone's face and still maintain a likeness, so I figured I'd start trying to find out by drawing myself. So these are crappy drawings of my lovely mug, with an attempt to loosen up, per the advice of some friendly strangers in a previous post. The profile pose is completely boring, and the expression is nonexistent, but I'm just playing with features and this whole "caricature" concept for now--it'll be better next time around. The second profile on the right is almost amusing, though. I also drew my mouth in a few different poses. Do mouths pose? I'm more pleased with those drawings, though they don't represent a caricature in any way; however, having drawn them certainly doesn't hurt.
