Drawing Barack Obama
I am one of those people who have little time for my hobby of drawing because the day job gets in the way. So typically when I am doing one of my hack editorial cartoons, I am working in Photoshop with my Wacom board. I wish I had the time to draw things out freehand, scan it and then ink in Photoshop because no matter how used to the Wacom I get, it doesn’t match what I can do with pen and paper.
Anyway, this week I find myself away from my Wacom and have several ideas running through my head. So far I haven’t really liked how my caricatures of Barack Obama have come out and each one has looked completely different. So for the past 3 hours I have been doing nothing but drawing Obamas face over and over. Chin and Ears are easy…its the placement of everything else that just doesn’t seem right from image to image. I finally got it so it is OK IMO.
Then what happens. I am surfing the net and come across an article on Cagle Cartoons call “Obama 101” by Taylor Jones describing…HOW TO DRAW OBAMA. WTF. How come I didn’t do this first?
Ehh…I’ll stick with what I got. To be revealed soon!!!
