Trying a new caricature technique I heard over at James Gurney’s blog: instead of thinking about which features to make bigger, think of which features to SHRINK.

This year I want to get better at backgrounds. Having a hashtag over at http://Mastodon.Art is helping, I feel like I have a community of likeminded artists wanting to improve!
Yeah, these make no sense. Went in without a plan. :b!
Queen Lumina in her hoard. Freehanded background, originally meant to practice her groomer monkey (who is too big). I drew the characters first, BAD ME. Also I LOVE HER STUPID HEAD it’s just a quick gesture from a taxidermy pic I had on my caveman phone.
Hope to paint this one later.
Ooooooo textured hair. And that guy down below was REALLY hard to hear, his testimony just got softer…and softer…and softer….
Made me feel for my dad, who has hearing problems and can’t hear a word in church. 😛
More from our new ward. The gentleman below just occurred to me as being so pale, I started him off all in white pencil.
Slight caricaturing may have happened on the topmost lady.
New faces from the new ward.
We weren’t much impressed by this ward when we previewed it in 2017–no one really said hi to us except for the lady in the lower-right-hand corner. She was the first to greet us in both 2017 and 2018!
(Now we’ve moved in and realized they know they’re awkward and are working on it.)
There’s more ethnic diversity in this ward, that’s exciting.
And the little girl in her polka-dot dress.
…and here’s the missionary’s companion. Plus a cute little girl with a flower in her hair!
These next three posts are the last drawings from our old ward. Yup, we finally decided to attend the congregation we’re actually zoned for… *Sigh*
Anyway, the missionaries spoke that day. Here’s missionary one…
This woman brings us peaches every summer from Utah. She is the peach queen.
