Boudreau's Caricatures

Canadian caricaturist David Boudreau has worked for the big studios such as Disney, Warner Bros., Meatball Animation and Dreamworks. He is currently freelancing and adding to his portrait portfolio.

Clockwise from upper left: Norman Rockwell, Jean Giraud (Moebius), Andy Serkis (Gollum), and—hey, that's me.
Thanks, David!

Nice that he used everyone's color palette and technique. But only one of the victims is gurning.

In quality caricatures such as Boudreau's, notice how quickly you recognize the subject. I find it helpful to do a few quick caricature sketches or at least visualize them in my mind, before doing a conventional portrait drawing or painting. This focus me on the features that define the person.

Excellent point, Robert Michael Walsh. Related to that, I find that when I'm stuck on a portraint or figure rendering, exagerating a feature that strikes me as important is frequently the key to unlocking a likeness.

This artist is a frequent contributor (and winner) to a FB caricature contest called Caricaturama Showdown 300o. HIs work is definitely top-notch.
