Caricature: A representation, especially pictorial or literary, in which the subject’s distinctive features or peculiarities are deliberately exaggerated to produce a comic or grotesque effect.
Characterization: In art, a technique in which features or qualities of an inanimate object are exaggerated and given human qualities; also known as personification, or anthropomorphism.
Comic: A graphic art form in which images and words are used to tell a story. The images are the main focus and are presented in strip or page layout. Dialogue and necessary information are enclosed in speech balloons and boxes. Panels, layout, gutters, and zip ribbons help indicate the flow of the story. Ideas in a comic are organized into a series of “shots”, like the storyboards for film.
This is a list of terms, and it includes several lessons on how to create effective images with humour.
