How to draw a Complex Group Caricature – Final Stages

Now is the time to piece together the individual drawings and merge them in Photoshop


Once they are scanned in as a single black and white artwork, I add layer upon layer of colour until the cartoon looks ‘finished’.

Sometimes it is best to conserve computer memory by colouring in each section before merging together but this causes some matching problems where each image abuts the other.

A few finishing touches like the requested gnomes (I’ve no idea why!) and the client is very happy with the artwork!
