This series of “How to Draw Caricatures” tutorials are a just a small taste of a larger and much more in-depth book I wrote called The Mad Art of Caricature! The book is 175 full-color pages, lavishly illustrated and contains greatly expanded explanations of the concepts presented in these tutorials, as well and a great deal of additional material on caricaturing other facial features, posture, hands, expression and more, techniques on drawing from live models, doing caricature for freelance illustration and for MAD Magazine.

Shading techniques allow you to weave layer upon layer of pencil marks to add a convincing form to your line drawings. In drawing, shading adds a sense of substance to your subject and produces a convincing tonal relationship. That relationship then translates to a sense of volume—a “likeness”.
