Hi Roger,

thanks. I've been trying to improve my likenesses. I really like drawing caricatures and I learn so much from Wet Canvas. Thank you again for the encouragement.

Well, I've darkened the features and around the eyes.

Please, comments, feedback, and suggestions are welcome.

Art man, every time I see your work I am so impressed by your improvements! You are going to be one of the better artists if you keep improving at this pace.

Something to look for is your proportions. Make sure that everything comes out right, even in caricatures. I love it! keep up the good work!

Thanks Roger and Coolray. I really appreciate your encouragement. I've re-done this caricature again. Here's my final (I think). I'm done with this one. I hope you like it. I think it's the closest so far to the referene picture's likeness.

Please comments, feedback, and suggestions are always welcome.

Take this for what it is Art Man - I draw buildings, not people - On this one, I think you had it better the first time.

Sometimes when we artists work on a piece we can over think what we are doing. And in the process screw it up. I've been there many times!

Becarefull of redoing a particular piece. Rather, learn from this one and do a different one using what you learned. You'll get lost trying to redo the same piece over and over and never be quite happy with it.

I like the modifications you did to the first one (meaning the second one) and if I were to offer my advice on the second one I would ask that you take a sharp cornered white eraser and add small highlights to the eyes. In you third posting I think you lost the personality of the character. Keep up the good work, you'll have the newpapers buggin you to do editorial's in no time.

Also, one of the things I am guilty of myself is making the drawing the way the subject will like to be seen. I bring this up because to the lack of the second chin the subject clearly has. If he's the one payin you then by all means be gracious, but if your trying to really capture him you might want to give him some more chunk.
