It´s hard to judge the level of it when there´s no originals to compare it with.

Very excellent work Agent. Having done some caricature myself (some with "permission," some not), and a bit of straight portraiture, I can say you're very talented.

Fenix, these are originals.

By "originals," I thought Fenix meant a picture of the person to compare.

Yes dear Watson I know! But caricatures are not the same as portraits so for to judge the skills of caricatures you first need to see the originals of which the caricatures have been made :D Wimmen!

My wife keeps bugging me for the same reason. I can't take pictures of the people I'm drawing, quite simply. It's not an appropriate venue.

You have to get yourself one of those tiny spy cameras!

I almost completely disagree Fenix. I see your point and of course you can't completely know how close to an actual portrait a caricature is. But, if a sketch is done as artfully as Agents are, then the chances are they are close; additionally they have captured the spirit of choosing characteristics to lampoon very skillfully and to me that demonstrates the ability, IMHO. Also, I just plain like them!

Cheeky monkey.

Just FYI, these aren't done from pics or portraits. They're sketches of live people sitting in a chair where I work. They take about 5-10 minutes, depending on how much the person moves their head.

A talented artist! I do not understand your skills or where they come from, as I can barely draw a straight line. :)

Thanks for sharing.
