Court shares some tips for exaggerating the body and explains how you can communicate personality and likeness with the body in your caricatures. Get more demonstrations in the premium lesson at http://proko.com/caricature

Often, an inexperienced caricaturist will put all of their exaggeration efforts into the face and just throw on a neck, shoulders and a small body as an afterthought. But not putting any thought into exaggerating figure is a huge mistake. Just like with the head, the body’s proportions can be changed for humorous reasons, to help you better recognize the subject, or most commonly, to help tell a story or point of view about the subject.

In this lesson, Court will explain his process for cartooning the figure and show you a few examples of how he approaches different body types.

To see more examples of Court caricaturing different body types, check out the premium course. In the premium section, Court shows how to caricature: children, heavyset people, voluptuous women, doughy middle-aged men, elderly people, and Prokopenko people… http://proko.com/caricature
