Okay, so after last week’s dismal failure to get a likeness of Amy Adams I had to take another crack this week. These two quick studies are much more successful. Part of the elusiveness of her face is her chin and jawline. Some angles make them seem very prominent and strong, but in reality she has a bit of a week chin and slight underbite. She has very large eyes and a sharply angled nose. This time I used several different pictures at various angles to compliment the two pics I used as the basis of these sketches.

I officially wash my hands of Amy Adams caricatures. No doubt my next MAD movie parody assignment will be a film with her in the lead role.


  1. Nate says:

    Those turned out great, Tom. I really like the top one! I can’t recall any movies she’s in except for ‘Enchanted’ (yes, I was dragged out of the house to watch it, but believe it or not – I enjoyed it!). She seems like a good actress though.

  2. John Polizzano says:

    You got it! Third time’s a charm! Both of these are right on!

  3. Ryan says:

    I knew exactly who it was from the first picture. I always try to guess these before reading who it is, and so far you’ve always nailed it.

  4. Jon says:

    Top one is on the money.

  5. Arun says:

    the 1st one looks great !

  6. Kit Lively says:

    Yep, you nailed it with the top illustration, Tom.

  7. The first one is very good. I liked her character when she was on The Office. ^_^ I’ve been doing some caricature practice myself, since I’ve got a gig doing them this weekend!
