The next person I decided to make a caricature out of a famous cartoon/anime world is this person. Let’s call him B. He’s a fellow student of Digital Marketing & Communication at EHSAL management school (Digitale marketing en communicatie). I’ve known him for quite some time before that actually. But those details aren’t so important for this kind of blog. What is important, is that I decided to make this person a pokémon trainer!
First off, I’ve used these two pictures (which I stole from his facebookpage, hue) as reference.
What I payed attention to were following things:
- Side whiskers as a clear characteristic
- Big chin
- Huge grin
- Black/grey jacket with a yellow cap (the more interesting outfit out of the two)
- Eyebrows not a real characteristic -> no need to intensify this characteristic in a male manga portrait
- Cheekbones clear when laughing/smiling
- Short hair
So, first off, let’s start this caricature with a basic manga face. This particular style has a lot of square-ish faces, which makes it in general quite hard to characterize most people, which have an oval-ish face. But It’s just a handicap we gotta deal with here!
