Portrait or caricature?

Waiting for the theater Onstage to open its doors, I saw these two artists creating portraits and caricatures from photographs at the base of the escalator.

j'aime beaucoup les caricatures, les dessinateurs sont très forts pour mettre en valeur nos défauts ;o)
Tu as fait un portrait de toi ?


I love cartoons, designers are very strong to highlight our shortcomings ;o)
You did a portrait of you?

I always like hanging out around creative types. or watching creativity in action. =)

I've often fancied having a characature done - but probably won't ever dare! Nice shot from above like that.

Making caricatures is easy for those who know what to look for and are deft at creating likenesses but for the rest of us it is a nightmare. LOL

My son is great at this and does it in his work.

I wish it would have been enlarged about 10 or more inches wide. I would have cherished a look at their details.
