Caricaturing Kids!

A couple of delightful young pre-teens caricatured from an event in Calgary I drew at Sunday afternoon. I remember when I first started drawing at events, I was quite hesitant when trying to capture a likeness of a young adult as their features are not fully developed yet. A lot of caricature artists still make the young adult look about 10 years older than their actual age....there are tricks. I was so fortunate to get a chance one summer to work drawing caricatures in Disneyland, California and my manager told me many of the little tricks to make the child look their age....thanks Tom! Terrific event by the way...thanks Cara from Kel Studios Entertainment!
