I've always had trouble creating different facial structures and body types for my OC's, so I figure other people might be having the same difficulties. A lot of people who learned how to draw from anime probably wound up drawing a lot of characters who had the same face type.
So my challenge is this! Choose one of your OC's and exaggerate their facial structure and body type.
It doesn't have to be a literal caricature, but try to make the features that your character already has stand out more. For example, if they have a prominent nose, make it more dramatic.
One thing you want to avoid, however, is over-stylizing something. The final product should fall within the range of a normal face. For example, don't do this: Your character should look unique, not ridiculous.
Here are some examples of characters with distinctive faces that aren't overly cartoonish:
Kuwabara, from Yu Yu Hakusho
Clayton, from Tarzan
Chihiro, from Spirited Away
Facial variation in Monster.
Lin Bei Fong, from Avatar
Draw your character twice: Once in your usual style, again with exaggerated features.
You can submit as many times as you like, practice makes perfect!
Drawing just a face is fine, but bonus points for exaggerating body structure.
Any medium (pencil, digital, finger painting)
Please use an OC, rather than an established character.
