Last night I experimented with drawing caricature from digital scratch. I think it looks okay — as in, it looks like him and it’s cartoony — but it doesn’t grab me the way pen on paper does. I am less comfortable drawing digitally than I am using traditional tools. That can always change, given that I worked hard to train myself with nibs and brushes, I can do it with a stylus and tablet.
Yet I don’t really think this wound up as a caricature; it’s a political cartoon. Old habits die hard. I had intended putting a bag labeled “child testicles” under his upraised foot, but that seemed to skirt the edge of bad taste. Maybe.
Meanwhile, on a more cheerful note, there is a new page of Wanderlost up!
