Caricatures

Inspirational Quote:
A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth.
Joseph Conrad

A few years ago, I decided to try creating caricatures from my collection of photos. I had so much fun, I didn’t know when to quit. Although some people find caricatures of themselves offensive, I mostly used photos of myself. However, a few family members gave me permission to use their photos, so I posted them as well: My husband and son, and two of my sisters-in-law.

Thought for today:
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. ~ Hebrews 13:2

My collection of angels were quite challenging. Most of them I gathered from the cemetery. Hey, beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to using free images. Besides, I like a challenge and I love re-creating sculptures. If you are familiar with creating your own picture tubes, then you know the process of erasing the background and cleaning up the rough edges that the eraser tool leaves behind. I do that by using the soften tool. Then comes my favorite part: adding color and texture. Like I said, these angels were challenging. The angel on the swing (027) got deleted six times before I was finally satisfied with her!
