Caricatures for $5.00
Ive recently discovered a pretty cool site called Fiverr.com, its a site for people to buy and sell services for 5 bucks, no more, no less. theres a lot of creative stuff being sold there, but Ive started making money off what I was already doing for free on occasion anyway, drawing caricatures based on people's photos. I know its better to do this sort of thing in person, but I rarely have that luxory...
Anyway, here are some of the results so far. Im realitively new to caricatures, Im used to drawing realistic, or straight up cartoony. Im hoping to branch out a bit, to train my eyes see each face's distintive features, figuring out what to exaggerate and what not to.
So far its been hard for me, a lot of times I worry I dont have the likeness down enough, but since Im charging rediculously low prices I figure that should make up for it if they dont think it looks like them enough. theres also the whole dont offend them too much thing which Im sure a lot of artists struggle with at first.
