I did these all with the 6B graphite lead holder we use at 6 Flags, NE with watercolor on coldpress watercolor paper. This style was somewhat similar to some caricature illustration work I've done before, but I hadn't worked much on watercolor paper before with this technique, and the texture of the paper led me to try new techniques. Overall, I was pretty happy with how this stuff came out, so I'll definitely see where else I can go with this style.

The likeness really sucks, but this was at least good practice for trying out 6b graphite with watercolor on watercolor paper, a technique I used a few days later at the convention. I'm also pretty happy with the anatomical exaggeration and linework. Likeness, not so much.
