The Couple Caricature
In early December 2017, a daughter approached me to have her parents rendered out as a caricature couple. She mentioned my Celebrity Sunday series as a pleasant style, and stated she would like the rendering to be like those. After much communication and discussion on the subject, and sending of reference images, it was confirmed via the rough sketch that the render would proceed.
Like many caricature renders, it is important to get good, well lit photos of the people involved to aid in the sampling of colours. In this case it was very hard, even with 6 photos to choose from. Anyway, with a combination of 3 photos the render took place, and the final image was delivered.
The end result was loved and framed as a gift to the family.

Below can be seen the variation and change between the rough sketch I made and the final render. The changes were very minor, but required.
1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste
Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
