Caricatures on the iPad

For the past few weeks I’ve been learning some things I had wanted to do for a very long time. I’ve been taking video lessons on how to sketch portraits, human figure, different techniques and different media. I’m been really curious about pastel pencils. I remembered I had one of these pencils but am having trouble sharpening it…

Also I’ve been practicing caricatures on the iPad. I’ve tried different apps, like Sketchbook Pro and ArtRage, but my favorite has been Procreate. It’s very stable and once that I mistakenly quit the app, it opened it back exactly where I was. I know I’m still scratching the surface, but the results have been very promising.

ArtRage was a bust, cool effects but quickly crashed with no autosave. Also it is more sluggish than Procreate and Sketchbook Pro. The winning point for me is that in Procreate I can use 16 layers at full resolution, instead of a smaller canvas as in SB Pro. I also find the interface much more easy to use.

Here are some of the caricatures I did, sketching with pencil first, photographing the sketches and rendering with Procreate:
