Dick Van Dyke Caricature

It has been quite some time since I have drawn any caricatures. This is something I love to do, so I really need to make the time to draw more often. I started out with a brush pen but then decided it needed more so I went in with a smaller ink pen and added some shading to it. I am not sure the thinner pen works with the thickness of the brush pen. Also, I have not used an ink pen for shading in a very long time. I think this is something I should practice. This was done in my cheapy sketch journal that I bought from Target. I thought about adding some water colors to it but I am not sure how the pages will hold up. Maybe I should try a page in the back to test it.

This is great! I like the contrast between the thick outline and the thinner shading lines.
