Sir Max Beerbohm
Every caricature artist has a unique way of doing things. For example, renowned caricature artist Sir Max Beerbohm created caricatures utilizing a single-figure technique. He had a unique way of grouping his newly-created caricatures. Beerbohm was lucky enough to get his single-figure caricatures noticed before he turned 25 years old.
George Cruikshank, on the other hand, did not gain attention until he was 43 years old. Whatever the case may be, both of these caricature artists were able to get their caricature works published in magazines and other noteworthy publications.
Switch Up Your Techniques
While it is still unclear how Beerbohm came up with his single-figure technique, he refused to quick until he reached a successful point in his life. You can begin this process by thoroughly accessing your techniques. A small alteration may be all you need to get your caricatures noticed.
A technique that many modern caricature artists are relying on is called 3D rendering. This technique allows caricature artists to convert their 3D caricature models into 2D character images.
There are currently only a handful of reputable three-dimensional rendering software programs available. All of these programs render high-quality 2D caricature images with the perfect blend of shadow and realistic effects.
Host A Caricature Exhibition
Caricature creations are forms of art. While they are not abstract, impression, or realistic art, they are art just the same. A great way to get your caricatures published is to do it through a public exhibition.
Begin advertising your exhibition several months in advance. Sent out brochures with a few examples of your 3D render caricature images. If you are ever going to get noticed, this is when it will happen.

The great thing about three-dimensional rendering is it does not require the artist to change his/her style. While each three-dimensional rendering software program is unique, most of them share many of the same features.
