Ah, looks like you've been looking at old TV Guide covers. Love the details, and the hair is a nice graphic depiction. I used to love seeing those covers with those fantastic illustrators that they used, like Amsel.

D Akey,yes those and anything else for ideas.
I do enjoy drawing in black and white and have done lots of drawings like this over the last couple of years.I think you can achieve more sometimes this way than by using colour...
I once tried drawing Charlie Chaplin in colour but scrapped it as it didn't have the desired effect,and drew him in black and white instead..:)
Thanks for commenting..:)

Yes Caesar, that's a good drawing. I recognize him certainly though it looks more like a portrait than caricature. But either way it's a nice drawing.

Thank You, dear Jon, Robyn and D Akey.
I wasn't that good then to introduce appropriate exaggerations and keep the likeness, as caricatures would require, so it actually remained halfway betrween a portrait and a caricature, as D Akey correctly points out. I improved a little bit though a little later thanks to a book by MAD artist I read. I hope I can still remind enough of his enlighting cues.
