    Caricature

    Does it look like him?
    I’mworking through Tom Richmond’s book.
    Help?

    I think his head is narrower at the top, rounder at the bottom...

    To me a caricature is not a direct portrait but exaggerates the features.

    Are you saying I did not exaggerate enough?
    I tried to exaggerate his small nose by making it smaller, and his thick lips by making them thicker, and his squinty eyes by making them smaller, and his round head by making it smaller and more pointy.

    What would you have done differently?

    To be honest I barely see any exaggeration at all. That angle/expression/back-lighting makes it hard to know for sure what his defining features are but you need to really run with them. To me his nose is not small--in the non-smiling picture is seems quite pronounced--but features are hard to read without a 3/4 view.

    You don't just make various stuff in the face bigger or smaller. You need to be able to read gestures well enough to understand how they make us recognize faces.
