Caricatures For Ellie!

The other night I drew caricatures at a bridal shower for one of my former animation students, Ellie Ventura, who is getting married this coming September. I must confess, bridal showers are my favourite type of event to work, as I get to caricature lots of cute girls! Some people believe that it's harder to caricature females, but I think it's still possible to exaggerate and stylize the features while maintaining their attractiveness. Anyway, here is a sampling of the ones I drew that evening. Unfortunately, I didn't get to sketch Ellie herself, though at least she has the one I did from when she was in my class about 5 or 6 years ago. All the best to Ellie and her beau on their upcoming wedding day!

You're definitley one of the best designers of female characters, largely due to your caricature talents! It is tricky to introduce specific traits while maintaining a look universally recognized as beautiful.

I enjoy seeing your live stuff--especially in a group so it's obvious how distinctive your vision of each individual is...
