SAME FACE DIFFERENT STYLES
I think its a good idea for a caricature artist to have more than one style under his belt. Not only does it break up the monotony of drawing everyone the same way, but Ive found that some faces lend themselves to one style more than another. Ive drawn people whose faces practically scream the word, "CARTOON!" while others lend themselves more to photorealism , and still others scream "EXAGGERATE ME!" this guy, who I call Big Red, had the best of both worlds going. He originally thought Id just caricature his NOSE mainly, but I told hijm he had much more going on in his face!
