Some people dont like being drawn....
Some faces and expressions are so irresistable that you are COMPELLED to draw them. This man had such great angles on his face, I was almost giddy not knowing WHERE to start drawing.Fellow Caricature artist, and teacher, Chris Collins ( you can find his blog here on my favorites list http://www.chriscartoon.com/) told me once that you want to be able to see those angles and exploit them! Caricature Master Court Jones also said that you want to see the face as a landscape. Its not always easy for me to get that focus, but when i do, its wonderful!
I did another study of this face using a more modeled approach, in blue colored pencil. I'll post that at a later date.
