Steven Tyler Caricature

Great Resources for Beginning Caricaturists

Steven Tyler Caricature
To me, a caricature is a person’s likeness that has some kind of an exaggeration of reality. That exaggeration can be based on any emotional gesture or physical feature, but I tend to gravitate towards funny expressions and realistic renderings. Rather than try to explain what I’ve learned about drawing caricatures, I’m just going to point you towards the artists that I’ve learned from.

If you want to get a solid handle on how to start drawing caricatures, I think you should read Tom Richmond’s entire blog! But, here are some tutorials to get you started.

    I totally dig this. My son, Tyler, is named after THE Steven Tyler because when I was 5 months pregnant I saw them perform at Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, VA and when the band walked up the center aisle to get to the lawn area, I was seated at the end of the row and got to touch Steven’s butt. That was when the argument between my now ex-husband and me ended on a first name! Always a neat story!

      Great story Cynthia. I worked at the Nissan Pavilion parking cars in the mid-nineties. I think it was the second year it was open. They built that place thinking that Disney was going to build a park close by. Great place to see a show but pure hell to a car get in and out! I saw Gwen Stefani jogging around the parking lot before a No Doubt show, but I didn’t name any of my kids after her. Steven Tyler is the man! My favorite Aerosmith album might have to be Permanent Vacation. Reminds me of high school…
