Learn how to draw caricatures from a professional caricature artist and animator. How do you exaggerate the face and still get a likeness? What tricks are there to help out? How far can you push an exaggeration? What are some good examples from professional caricaturists today? The answers are in this video! Jim invites you into his studio and shows you “a behind the scenes” look at the creative process of producing caricatures suitable for illustration and commissions. Recognizable celebrities are used as examples so you can judge for yourself how well a likeness was achieved. While Jim sketches, you see all the rough drawings, trial and errors, and near misses until he finally comes to the finished product that he is pleased with. You learn to exaggerate beyond the quick sketch technique of the party caricature described in video 1 and 2. Three examples are completed in three different media, colored pencil, airbrush and mixed media. A bonus section includes a series of five minute “first impression” thumbnail sketches of celebrities to inspire you to let loose and have fun with the art of caricature. An extremely detailed analysis of exaggeration is presented as an aid to understanding caricaturing in its strictest sense, filled with examples from modern masters Phillip Burke, David Cowles, Rob ert Risko, and Steve Brodner. There is even a humorous spot of animation to help illustrate some of the finer points of stretching a likeness. This is a highly entertaining and informative 70 minute video worthy of your DVD library.
