Q: I was wondering if you’d ever post a step by step of your live caricature technique. What you look for to get a likeness, and what your thinking is to make it look cartoony as opposed to realistic.
A: While I plan on doing another tutorial or two on the blog in the near future, I am afraid I won’t be doing one on the live caricature technique, or certainly not one that in depth. The reason being that I have a book in the works on that particular subject. While it is still at least a year away from publication I don’t want to put much or any of the content I’m working on for it on the blog. Then no one would buy my book!!! How’s that for money grubbing capitalism at it’s finest? Sorry about that.
I’ll probably end up doing some kind of a teaser or two for the book once it’s publication is near. In the meantime look for a much more detailed digital color tutorial this or next month here.
