May29, "Mick Jagger," EDiM for Sydney Sketch Club

I really enjoyed to create this image for a theme, "music." But I do not listen to rock music and have no idea about it. Only Mick's body language has always interested me. I did not listen but "looked at" their music. I wanted to draw him one day. Ah, I did it!! Great fun. I admire the energy of Rolling Stones for more than a half century. Btw, people say that my caricatures look nice. Because I like each person/subject so much and work on a caricature, I have no reason to make a subject ugly. 
Have you ever tried caricatures? It's fun. I like this way. My mentor called it "fun drawing." If you can exaggerate a person's features, that'll turn out a fun portrait. It's worth trying, Friends! I love drawing any figures.  
Now, a tomorrow's theme is "money." 
Friend, Happy Painting!!

  4. I love that you "looked at" their music:-) What keen observer you must be! So I've always wonder about caricatures...how do you decide which features to exaggerate and how do you then keep a likeness? I have never done it and have a hard enough time with likeness in a normal portrait, so I am in awe of artists who can keep a likeness thru caricature! Do you just intuitively know what to exaggerate or are there guidelines?

    1. Hi, Minnemie, I do it "intuitively." I do not have guidelines. But, in figure drawing, think of this fact: we are same human beings, yet different individuals. We have commonality. What are differences in us? Observe people all the time, face expressions and how we move around, etc, even without sketch books. Then, I recommend, first, "Draw lots of portraits, tens of millions," and do even quick daily sketches of figures. Once, you get the “points/features” of an individual, even only a few lines can show who’s who. Experience is the best teacher. Please do not chase up similarity. It runs away from you, as long as you pursue it. I always do not do it. Just draw people. Look at a subject from multi angles. Choose one favourite angle, is my way. You begin to feel like telling “something” about that person/model. Then, I get on portraits. My caricatures respect models and I enjoy creating them. It does not exaggerate likeliness in an ugly way. So, models love my work and happily buy them! I hope my answer will answer for you some!
      Best wishes, Sadami
