Jack Black Rough Sketch

A big shout out to Tom Richmond at The MAD Blog, as he has a set of excellent tutorials on caricaturing. Some of the notes I took are scribbled to the left hand side of drawing of Mr Black. I did this drawing to start drilling these principles into my brain, and help with capturing the likeness of the person.

The tutorials can be found here.

Indian kid sketch

To add a bit of depth and shading, I have started using cool grey prismacolor(colour) makers. I think the results look much cleaner than pencil.

On a separate note over at Purge Theory, Ben Cadwell has posted some notes on storyboarding he received from Dreamworks. They contain great reminders for the basics such as depth, staging, grouping characters and perspective.
