Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

I'm taking Jason Seiler's course, and while we're only on Week 3, I've already noticed an improvement in my caricature work. Probably because the guy is an absolute slave driver. :)

While I'd like to spend more time on my editorial cartoon caricatures, I've often got to get them done and sent out in a day or less. This one took about 8 hours from sketch to completion but I enjoyed working on it so much that I could have easily spent another day on it. If nothing else, I'm more confident getting the likeness down in a short time.

Here's the reference photo I used (resolution wasn't good)

















...the final editorial cartoon...















...and a closeup of his noggin.






















Having a great time so far.
