CARICATURES - LEARN TO DRAW

ALEX HUGHS    Book Number: 88767    Product format: Paperback

The Italian word caricare means to exaggerate or load, and caricature can be seen as the art of capturing the essence of somebody's personality through an exaggerated likeness. It may stretch someone's nose or give them big ears, but it needs to reveal something of the personality behind the face. The caricature should not be cruel, grotesque or ugly, and with skill, it can be very subtle and restrained. Broadly there are four styles - portrait, stylised, quick sketch and political such as the first example here of Russian leader Boris Yeltsin in a parody of the famous painting of Napoleon on Horseback. Create caricatures of your favourite celebrities, work from life using family members and friends, take photographs when out and about or make quick sketches of fellow travellers on the train. With step-by-step illustrations we look at standard proportions beginning with a grid across the whole face, face shapes, facial features, basic expressions, working from photographs, cheats and tricks, body shapes, posture and gesture, clothes and costume, symbols and props and caricatures in settings, once again an example of Yeltsin with a detailed backdrop of the Kremlin. Beginner to expert level. 64 page large softback, 8" x 11".
