Cartoon Portraits from Photo and Live drawing
On occasion, I might be asked to draw a portrait from a picture. The challenge is that you really need multiple pictures to get enough visual data on a given subject. It was lucky that it had been school picture day, so we had plenty of references on hand.
Ideally, I find it more efficient to draw my cartoon portraits live with the subject present for a few minutes. Most sketches take 4-5 minutes to complete.
