Caricature Practice, Jojin Kang (2D)

Title: Caricature Practice
Name: Jojin Kang
Country: Australia
Software: Photoshop

Hi guys, this is my first attempt at drawing on a wacom tablet(I've had this tablet for over 4 years!!!).. It's been about 8 years since I drew anything for fun and I miss it quite a bit.

I have been inspired by a lot of people on this forum and decided to have a go. I found it very rewarding (except when doing the hair!)and plan on doing 1 or 2 illustration a day after work till I get good enough to maybe do it professionally.

Pls give me some crits, and pointers in technique if you'd like, these are about 5 hours each coloured in photoshop after scanning in a quick pencil sketch. thanks in advance guys!.

I like those a lot! You really captured them in those drawings! I like the detail, too! Would you mind telling what method you used? Charicatures aren't so easy...

Great work Spacetik, why don't you join us at the daily sketch forum.

hey guys, thanks for the comments. I forgot to name them actually, first 1's a friend of a friend Chloe Maxwell(model) and the second is Naomi Watts(actress).

about the technique.. well I'm kinda new at this but basically with a pencil I try to capture what stands out for the individuals, nose, eyes, lips, shape of the face? and try to exaggerate without losing the likeness. Then i scan and render in photoshop with my wacom. this is a very slow process at the moment but am sure as I learn it'll get faster.

Im very excited about this, just posted another 1 I did last night and when I finish work(my real job) im going to do another!

SteveV: I might just do that but at the moment have a lot of my own practice to sort thru first! thanks for ur interest!

I have a hard time doing charicatures of "pretty people" - when the proportions are right, and features normal, how do you know what to exaggerate, and how do you exaggerate without losing the good looks?! You seemed to do that pretty well! :-)

Hi TeviH, thanks for your comments.. why don't you try to draw someone distinct features? that way you get the technique down and then u can move on to something harder. I'm doing mostly women characters because I find they are a lot less work (in terms of render time) and also they are more fun to do.

have a look at I consider this guy to be 1 of the best in the business.

good luck!
