Caricature Project

Preliminary1 Preliminary2 Preliminary3

The caricature project was quite enjoyable. Caricatures, in a few short words, are a satirical version of one’s self. The caricature artist that somewhat inspired me during this process is Max Beerbohm. His caricatures are satirical enough to the point where it’s a bit humorous and real enough to the point where you know who the person is. His caricature work really caught my eye because his work was both animated and had a sense of realism.


I tried to exaggerate my appearance as much as I could. I exaggerated obvious things, such as making my glasses huge and my eyes small. I also exaggerated less obvious things such as my window’s peak and my overbite. I think this caricature project helped me grow as an artist because I believe I’m the type of artist that does exaggerated and animated art better than realistic art and I think this project allowed me to explore that more.


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
