O03 Kay

In this lesson, you first sketch the proportions of a caricature of a female adult named Kay within a grid of twenty-four squares. You then use hatching to add shading to the background, face, hair, ears, and clothing. Skills include using a grid to help sketch accurate proportions, and identifying and rendering values according to a dominant light source. This cartoon is an example of a unique style of caricature, affectionately referred to as Gigglecature, a word you will probably not find in any dictionary. The goal is to draw the face of a person as a cartoon that could be transformed into a puppet, doll, or stuffed toy.
