Just Horsing Around: A Photoshop Caricature of Barack Obama

This morning I wanted to practice drawing and painting in Photoshop, using ONLY Photoshop without the assistance of Xara X. I so used Barack Obama as my subject and drew this admittedly crude caricature of the man. If you want to learn to paint, you paint; there is no other way. I particularly like the nose in this creation, as noses are difficult -- they have to appear three dimensional and yet blend with the face so they appear attached and not just floating in space.

So there it is. I won't win any prizes, but I had fun doing it. Hmm, maybe if I changed my name to Pablo Picasso?
