Gorilla On My Back

For some strange reason, the past couple of weeks I have seen a sharp decline in my figure drawing abilities, especially during class. I've hit some kind of slump (which is sad considering I wasn't great to begin with), and I'm currently researching preferred methods of major league baseball players for getting out of said slump.
Today was particularly frustrating in figure drawing class, until we got to do caricatures of each other! What fun that was! I was quite happy with how mine turned out, and since there is no more room on my mom's fridge, I decided I'd post them here! I hope you enjoy these vague resemblances of people you probably don't know...

This is Elle (she has a super-cool blog here). Her jaw is not nearly this square and masculine...


This is Garrett (he does not have a super-cool blog here). One time in class he had the hiccups for like two hours straight. Now that you know a little bit about him, doesn't this caricature look just like him?


This is Allen (he has a super-cool blog with an infinitely better portrait of Elle here). He has some cool hair (I'm jealous). He's not really this blurry in real life.


This is Claire (not to be confused with the Claire who has a super-cool blog here). Yes, that moustache was really there. No, it is not a real moustache.


And this was my favorite of the night, the legendary Johnathan Whiting. He's been caricature-ing me left and right in goblin poses all semester, and I am glad to say I got him back. I got him back good. (He has a super cool blog here and here.)


Anyways, thanks for the indulge!

lol, You're a funny guy Aaron, and I mean that in the least offensive way. Great Drawings I wish I knew everyone else better, so I could compare. i especially love the mustache, a legendary twist on any drawing.
