Category Archives: Caricature



My favorite project this year is probably going to be my caricature project that I am currently working on. This is going to be one of the funniest projects this year just to look at when I’m done. I’m going to make the features soo messed up and distorted, you won’t know what’s coming.

Some of the earliest caricatures are found in the works of Leonardo da Vinci, who actively sought people with deformities to use as models. The point was to offer an impression of the original which was more striking than a portrait. Diodemmar Casem, one of the great early practitioners, was favored by the members of the papal court for his ability to depict the essence of a person in ‘three or four strokes.


Caricatures have many different qualities. One of them is that the subjects’ body parts are often distorted, especially if the artist creating the caricature notices any distinguishing features on the person. Usually, facial features are heavily distorted (for example, forehead, eyes, mouth, nose, ears, etc.). Take the caricature below, for example; his forehead, hair, eyes, and cheeks are made fun of by throwing them completely out of proportion with the rest of his body.
