"What If" Zoom Meetings
US Politicians & Political News Commentators, Star Trek

Since COVID-19 started a few months back, my party caricatures have been postponed, so I started fooling around with sketching zoom meetings from the tv. Below is The original Star Trek crew and a political news junkies dream collection of characters drawn in a new watercolor caricature/cartoon style I've been developing.

Welcome to my Caricatures From Photos page.
Here's some of the basics:

When people ask about getting caricature drawings like these done some of the first questions I'm usually asked are:

Do you take credit cards or PayPal? "No, just Venmo and bank checks or money orders at this time." (Please Call 631-942-5154 or E-mail Caricatures From Photos for pricing info)

Leave a description of what you're looking for. Does it matter how many people are in the picture? "Yes, also size, specific pets, cars, logos, etc. it depends upon how complicated the scene is."

50th birthday party characature of an Irish guy behind his bar with beer Characatures by Marty
The above caricature was a surprise from his wife, it was used for invitations, the original was larger, for framing. This was done in watercolor.

The above was a quicky marker school bus stop cartoon as a surprise family caricature gift for a school bus driver friend of mine. This or variations of it can be used as gift of greeting card for a school bus driver you know.

school bus stop cartoon school bus driver caricature family caricature Characatures by Marty
The above school bus yard hand painted watercolor illustration is a great greeting card for school bus drivers to give out to matrons, school monitors, etc. Or to give to a school bus driver. A bus number can be written on that third bus from the left, the inside of the card is blank, it comes with an envelope. I've written quotes heard on the bus and given it to my matrons as holiday gift and end of school year greeting cards!

Things to keep in mind when picking photos to send me.

It's best to work from photos that focus more on the persons head, full body shots with small heads aren't that useful, since I make up the bodies. Smiling close-up full or three-quarter head shots are preferred. Try to get photos that are well lit, outdoor shots are usually good. Make sure the photos are current & look like the person, sometimes I get three or four picture's of the same person and they look like three or four different people. I like to do pencil roughs for approval, before going to finish.

Doing caricatures from photos, "studio" caricatures, is very time consuming, they take hours. Unlike doing them at a party where I can do about ten people per hour, doing them from photos can take up to three hours, with one person in them.

A less expensive option is for caricatures done similar to what I would do at a party, I have a number of pre-drawn backgrounds that I can send you a link to. (Example: make me playing football, a cheerleader, a mermaid, a cowboy, playing tennis, etc.) These are much faster for me and much cheaper and there is always some customization (like uniform colors and jersey numbers, etc.), These are done with markers and pastels. Another way to keep the cost down is if I just do the picture based on the photos supplied and background description, not sending out a sketch for approval before shipping it out. The only problem people seem to have with this is that peoples vanities come out; "I know the photo looks like that, but make the chin/cheeks/nose/etc. smaller, or something like; give him more hair (even though there isn't any there in the photo).
