Military graduation team caricature

A popular art gift amongst military are graduation caricatures of the training team that is presented to the trainers for display on their wall. Some training teams have traditionally had a group photo taken but increasingly the trend is to go for something unique.

Here is one just completed by artist Zalo who was tasked with This request:

We are Australian Air Force undergoing training in the USA, and were looking to get a caricature created of us for our US Instructors, going away from the traditional photo and plaque idea.
Also humour is greatly welcomed. We’ve thrown around ideas of someone laying in the engine intake, and/or riding on top or hanging from the small wings either side of the engine. Or all of the above! Any other ideas you might have are appreciated.

The customer’s feedback:

Caricature King were excellent to deal with. It was as simple as sending photos and guidelines for the artist, and they did their thing. Our artist (Zalo) provided us with a draft in which we could makes changes and suggestions to the final product, which arrived in approximately a week after purchase, and looked great.
Overall a great service is provided by Caricature King and would definitely recommend them to someone looking for an image for a gift or personal use.

This is the image that now graces the training facility!

Retirement gift caricature by Alec

Here is another very cool retirement gift caricature by Alec. The brief was quite simple – the man was retiring and was planning on traveling in his RV. He was into photography and liked Hawaiian shirts.

The end result provided the customer with a unique, highly personalized retirement gift that showed his colleagues wanted to go beyond the norm and show they had really put some thought into an outstanding gift for his retirement.

This is what the customer had to say:

I am so impressed with this process! Just a few clicks and the right images and we now have this wonderful rendering of our friend to present for his retirement – he will love it. Turn around time is very impressive.

Caricature art of lovers

As you can see from this image, caricature does not have to be about distortion – it can be more like art capturing a moment in a way not possible with a camera.
