So apparently I get sidetracked pretty easily - I keep not updating this blog. At all.

BUT! Here is an update!

I've recently been doing some caricatures in my spare time, because I've started to realize how much fun they are.
I'm still basically a beginner, but here's a few of the ones I've done:

Sean William Scott
Matthew Broderick

I've done some others, but they're not particularly identifiable. I'll post more as I do them.

In other news, I recently did a digital painting I'm pretty proud of: you can see it here if you want to comment on it, but here's what it looks like:

In still other news, I've been playing around with After Effects and watching the (free) tutorials at, which are AWESOME. Definitely check that website out.
Here's an example of something I made in After Effects: Click Me
(note: That's kind of a big file, but it's worth it. Also: turn your speakers on. It's better with sound.)

I'll post more updates as I make more stuff!
Nate Taylor, out.

It seems that some people have a real knack for caricatures.
Personally, I find I can really nail the odd person here and there (and I know before I start that I'll get it), but other than that it's pretty hit or miss.
Some guy I was at school with did everyone brilliantly, and they were all up on the wall.

Yeah, I'm pretty much the same way. Occasionally I'll get one of those frustrating instances where the person has some really great distinguishing features, but I just can't get the likeness.

My roommate, Sagan Lacy, is a brilliant caricaturist. He's got some great stuff on Deviantart and the About Faces caricature site.

Guess it's all about practice and perseverance... which I have more of with animation than with caricature, but it's great fun nonetheless.
