I was recently contracted to do a few digital caricature presentations at our local schools and today was my first.
It is very rewarding teaching the students what caricatures and cartoons are all about, and being able to demonstrate and show them many art tips.
I utilized my Live Digital Caricature setup with the digital projector for the program, and as part of the educational program, several students we selected to be ‘live examples’ (those students were able to take a cartoon-likeness home with them, too!). Below are a few of these drawings.
After presenting these programs for three years, I accomplished a program that works well for me that successfully teaches the students.
UPDATE! Email from teacher:
