The sketching process behind my cousin's bar mitzvah table-cards

Feeling bored today, so here's a behind-the-scenes looks at the creation process behind this set of drawings.
First things first, we had to agree on how the caricature should look: cartoony, realistic, detailed, etc. These are the sketches I did based on some photos of him, done roughly in order from left to right:

Eventually the style in the top right was what was chosen. Then came the quick thumbnail sketches of each individual drawing, whose content had been agreed on ahead of time:

In this case, my "client" (ha ha ha) had no editing requests, and so matters continued apace until their inevitable conclusion.
So... yeah, that's how it all went down. Toodles!

Drawn using:
No. 2 pencil
Black 0.4 mm pilot pen
Blue ballpoint pen
