FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What can I expect?
artist has his/her own style of drawing. Caricatures are impressions or
a representation of your face. The finished work is an interpretation of
the image(s) supplied, and can include exaggerations on the subject’s
distinctive features to produce a comic or grotesque effect. In short,
caricature is not a portrait, and under some circumstances may have a
limited similarity to the original subject. Basically it means certain
elements of the face or body may adopt different shapes. This is what
caricaturing is all about.

Q: What is preferred,
photo of a close up of a face or photo of a whole body?
A: If the
caricature is of a head and shoulder, then a good clear head and
shoulder is fine. But for a full body caricature, a picture showing the
full body will be great. If it does not show the face clearly, then a
picture of the person’s head is needed. Remember, the better the image
the better the result!

you need for the caricature?
