How to Draw a Caricature




Introduction: How to Draw a Caricature

Step by step instructions on how to draw a basic caricature. Every artist has their own style so make sure you find yours and run with it! I usually use a standard black sharpie and a fine tip sharpie for details, feel free to explore whatever material you are comfortable with.


-Exaggerate features that stand out right away (i.e. eyes, jaw, nose, mouth, ears, etc.), don't be afraid to make things crazy.

-Don't get too worked up if it doesn't look like the person right away. Continue to draw all features and keep working on it!!

-Practice practice practice

    Very nice! I have loads of respect for anyone with the talent for capturing likenesses in caricatures. Thanks for sharing these tips.

    It takes practice. I had to do a lot of self research and studies on caricatures. Keep practicing, I'm sure you'll get it soon enough :)
