Hi! I'd like to have a virtual caricature gig by drawing redditors today! It's all free of coarse, the only thing I need is a picture of yourself. The better the quity of the pic, the better. Just imagine you're sitting a few feet across from me where I could see your entire face. Please try to avoid cropping portions of your head so you have a higher chance of getting drawn (I'm looking at you... ladies who take close-up pics of your eyes). Also, I prefer the picture you submit is actually of YOU (sorry redditors with privacy concerns).

Any other artists out there who'd like to join, please do so! That'll be awesome

Edit: wow! It's blowing up in here. I'm on it!! Check out /r/redditgetsdrawn while you're waiting :)

Edit 2: I'm jumping all over the thread picking the ones that catch my eye right away. Please don't be offended if I haven't drawn you. I'll be sporadically drawing through out the day while doing other "everyday" thing such as eating and running errands.

Edit 3: that was fun! I know I missed a lot of you guys but I think I drew close to 40 drawings. Not bad for a few hours. I might do another one of these in a few weeks. I noticed I would submit a drawing and it would disappear for no reason. I left a comment to each person that I drew where this seemed to happen. I was using "alien blue" for my phone the whole time so maybe it was that. Thanks again and hopefully you guys enjoyed it :)

I'll a question. What kind of living do you make from this? I mean, are you able to support yourself doing this alone? Are you one of those people that set up shops at different venues like fairs and concerts? Have a nice day.

Artector22 karma

The OKC Thunder pretty much is my biggest client and I'm able to support myself thanks to them. During off season I work only events such as weddings and corporate picnics. By no means am I rich, but most bills are covered :)

Can you do one of my husband and I?


Thank you very much!

Probably a bad pic for a caricature but I didn't really have any better ones.

Xezzy4 karma

That's an awesome idea. This is me: http://i.imgur.com/pPW9sbo.jpg

jolls4 karma

Ahaha how delightful! Here is me! http://i.imgur.com/wraV1Hv.jpg

Also, for a question part... I've recently started doing caricatures for parties and whatnot, after a lot of friends expressed interest in some of the fast & loose ones I do for them on Facebook. My first time doing it at a party was kinda nerve-wracking. Have any tips for doing better caricatures in party type settings? Thanks!!

fluffsta0073 karma

Some great caricatures you have done! Could you do me and a friend in NY looking sad? Many thanks.


motsu353 karma


wow, thats so cool... since this is an ama...

  • have you ever worked at an amusement park? that's the main place i see caricature artists.

  • have you ever had someone get offended at what you drew

  • do you do any other non stylized art?

officialpoypoy2 karma

how much $ do u make per event? How do you get gigs from normal average ppl? How long does each caricature take?

I am a caricature artist too :D its fun and all I am slower though it takes me 10 minutes each caricature full color.

Artector7 karma

I charge around $100 an hour. The kind of caricatures I do are just head and shoulders so I can draw as many people I can. I did start at theme parks but it's not as profitable. Craigslist ads and also doing weddings for free (with tip jar) is how I started when I left the theme parks

Tweedlepounce2 karma


Great work man, and thanks!

I drew you but my reply disappears. Let me know if you got it
