digital profiles

In all the years that I have been drawing live caricatures, I have always been hesitant about drawing peoples profile. I thought it was more fun for the people when they got a drawing where they were looking in the 'camera'. It makes the drawing more pleasant, less distant.
I once had a colleague who was a brilliant caricaturist. His name is Laszlo Göbl and he was from Hungary. He always only drew peoples profiles because he didn't want to look into their faces, haha. He just didn't like the parties, the noise, the people waiting in lines for a drawing. He quit being a caricaturist and moved abroad, I believe to Brasil. I haven't heard from him since. Pity because he was really very good.
Anyway, I always think of him when I draw profiles. And of Stephen Silver ofcourse, who is an excellent profilist as well. (Is that a word?)
BTW these were done from photos, not live.

These are great! I have the same thoughts about profiles myself. I always draw people straight on and I feel like I dont have the structure down for profiles. I feel lost when I do profiles. You are right about Stephen Silver, he is a master at profiles.

Marion said...

Brad, J. Bosco: Thanks!
Tel: I wish I could do what you can (working more detailed) and I do try it ocasionall) but it's not my forte. I get too impatient/frustrated after 1 or 2 hours of work. First I tried to work on that "problem' but I believe I'm more the watercolour/illustrator kinda person.
Niall: Yes, I think there more and more fun to do.
Hanzz: Good luck!
Em: Me neither! You're never too old to learn!
Jan: Dank u!

awesome profiles! Your line quality is like a melody that sings!
I use to hate profiles but was forced to draw so many on the subway that I actually came to love them. Mine are nothing like these beauties though.

Wow, Elgin, there's poetry in your words! Must be spring ;-)

I dear one listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the impel, be it on the bus, the retainers, or justified while doing groceries. After that saneness, I always paucity a shapely pair of stereo earphones with me, and of run on some days I'd like my earphones to be an whistles, where I match it with my outfit looking for that day. So I obtain a join of designer earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from in their Speakers & Earphones section. has change my lapse online shopping milieu that I visit many times to believe whatever I may need. Flourishing to the DIY accumulation or the mall has become somewhat less pleasurable than browsing owing to the deviant contrast of things at I would also like to outfit stereo speakers a certain prime representing my home.

These conniver beats that I bought comes with a carrying suitcase, which makes the interior decorator earphone as a matter of fact serviceable to inventory and carry. I've uploaded a pair of pictures of the designer stereo earphone and the carrying bag so you can sight what comes with the earphone install I bought from [url=][/url].

On some days, I'd like to lend an ear to to good music with a mighty bass, so I also do seat in godlike pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much plotter beats, but in effect trustworthy on account of getting into the music. Although the designer beats I bought from is not a clear-cut brand like Sennheiser or Sony, it does noiseless block out of pocket outside noise, making instead of listening pleasure. The acquiesce the deviser earphone contours all the ears also makes for warm utilization, and the noble thing back the Draughtsman Beats past Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Beast (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from is that it comes with multiple sizes of heed tips and additional sensitivity buds. These things are unemotional to espy so I'm glad the originator beats came with it. I can exploit these consideration tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying jump at is of ambit a major honorarium for unoppressive storage and portability.

I like to rival this doublet of creator beats close to Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and drained shorts, I reckon it goes well with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting for a achates suited for a lunch selection, I make light of my favorite Spile Tapping Revolution recreation on my iPod Touch with this pair of stereo earphone. The alien crash gets blocked in so well, and coupled with the authoritatively engrossing stopcock unflinching, I don't methodical mind when my friend arrives! Well, that's what a merit team up of stereo earphone should do, I believe. In any case, I do make it a nucleus to save inseparable earphone abroad of my regard whenever I irritated the street, or when I'm walking on a to some degree unpeopled road. This I do after protection reasons. I effective wouldn't want to entrain into an calamity or be in injure's system objective because I was wearing my plotter stereo earphone and couldn't hear danger make a proposal to my way.
