Caricature Studies (Ricky Gervais)

I recently made a list of celebrities to caricature so I could start to build a portfolio of recognizable faces.  I’ve always been a big fan of Ricky’s since I first saw the original, BBC version of  The Office.  He was such an unlikeable character in that series that I couldn’t even look at the screen when he was embarrassing himself.

While I’m fairly satisfied with this sketch of Ricky, I don’t feel that I quite captured his over-the-top, high pitched laugh.  I also feel that this works as more of a portrait then a caricature as I didn’t really exaggerate many of his features.  I found that as I tried to play with the proportions of his face I would lose his likeness, it’s something I’ll have to work on.
