Hand drawing is a sort of representing or depicting our thoughts. Sometimes drawing is needed to immortalize something. It is also needed to preserve some information from century to century. For example we might consider different picture of Egyptian Pharaohs. Archeologists discover different picture from their tomb or sculpture or pyramid and they describe their condition and life using those picture. So what does it means, it means using picture the Pharaohs have showed us their life after thousands of years.
There are many kinds of free hand drawing. Caricature drawing is one of them. This is a very special kind of drawing because people imitate and mock something or some person using their talent of depicting. When you draw a person’s face exactly as he appears then it is called portrait and when you distort different portion of that picture intentionally and try to mock using the person’s face then it is called caricature drawing. It is difficult to maintain the recognizing element of a certain face by distorting. For attaining that goal painters try to maintain likeliness of different portion of the face. Sometimes they make distortion of single or few elements. But whatever the procedure is the core intention of that purpose is to make that picture attractive and capable to describe the intention of painter.
Caricature drawing has huge impact on history also. Some people might find its funny, but the true fact is that kind of drawing usually use for representing your thought. That is why in every revolution, free minded people try to mock tyrant or organization those are responsible for making worse condition of people. Sometimes those pictures become the symbol of revolution and protest. And eventually they become a glorious part of that history. So caricature drawing not only interesting but also can put an important influence on our life too.
