Friends are tricky, especially the female variety. So far I've only ever been asked by one person to do a caricature of them: amazingly, a female friend. A very brave female friend.
This is a rare one given that I used color. In this case, I had no monochromatic alternative that would do justice to the subject. The color, incidentally, was sampled directly from the reference photograph. I will add that it's a bona fide caricature: features were gently exaggerated just enough to keep it flattering, and avoid making it cartoonish. Quite the tightrope.
I have done other friends, but we all have a hobby in common, so they're all on a separate page.
