How To Draw Daddy Yankee, Daddy Yankee


Before you even begin to draw a caricature, it is always best to study who it is you want to draw. If you don't know what the person looks like, it will make it even more complicated to try and draw them. This is where you should try to find the ke   


This is what I call the sketching stage. I tend to do a very quick sketch just to get my idea down as quick as possible. One thing I like to do is examine the person I want to draw for about two minutes before I sketch and then try to sketch from    


To find the center proportion of the face, I like to begin my drawing with the nose. I personally work my way up when drawing the nose. Nostrils to septum, moving on to the Ala ( wings of the nose), and then finished with the apex.


Next, I add the sunglasses. I used a couple of reference photos of sunglasses to help me a little more with drawing them correctly.
