The caricature is a drawing style, where the person’s characteristic traits are exaggerated, mostly to get a comic effect. They were drawn using charcoal, pencil, sketches, or paints in ancient times. Caricatures are a form of satire and entertainment. You may have seen caricatures of celebrities and public figures, emphasising their physical features with big heads and small bodies as a form of complimenting or ridiculing them. Cartoons and caricatures are two different art forms. Caricatures are drawings of an actual person or a portrait in cartoon style with more attention to detail. But cartoons are just fictional characters or animals or landscapes that may or may not generate humour. It is visible when you watch cartoons, comic books, and anime. If you are thinking about giving something unique to your friends, family, or colleagues, you have the option to turn your lifeless photographs into caricatures.

All you need is to have a good photograph that provides essential details, including your face, upper body, or whole body. Or you can make your caricature and keep it as wall decor for your bedroom or living room. It may look fun and vibrant. If the person has any striking features like a wide nose or eyes, the caricature artists can exaggerate it. The funniest part is that they should still be recognisable even if the features are exaggerated. And that can be called a successful caricature.
