I found these two caricatures off in the corner:
...I don't recall what prompted these; they were mixed in with some of my newspaper work files but I'm sure they weren't for the paper. Maybe I just did them for the heck of it when I should have been doing something else.
...They look like they were done around the time I was trying to figure out how to get my digital drawings to look like pastel drawings-- I'm guessing because they seem to be more concerned with the manipulation of textures than with the drawing itself. All part of the learning process.
