Caricature theme - on the red carpet

Client's brief:-
"Dear Jit,

I was referred to you by a friend who had their caricature done and I loved the end product! Would like to present my hubby with an Anniversary gift by ordering a caricature of both of us (full body + background).

Will you be able to create a red-carpet moment for the "theme" - decked in the finest red-carpet togs for us both - with like cameras flashing away in the back. (I'm fine if you have other ideas for this, would just like some Hollywood-esque red carpet moment as theme). Specifically for him, dressed in a suit but with open neck shirt inside. And to include in a corner "Happy 3rd Anniversary, August 2008"

Couple caricatures on red carpet A4
I guessed this caricature could be the one which she was referring to.

I had some hard time to get their features out, partly due to the angle, size and features of the subjects. Sometimes, when the starting point wasn't right, and the feel was not there, all things go against your favour. That was what happened to me here. Thus, I have to put in extra effort to get them right at the beginning of the pencil stage. Of course, it was worth the effort. When the starting part wasn't right, all things will go haywired in the end.

Upon receiving the framed artwork, the client said:-

She dropped me an email the next day:-
"Dear Jit,

Would just like to say a big THANK YOU for the wonderful caricature! You really captured our facial features perfectly - I was blown away by the uncanny resemblance! My hubby loved it too, he was very very impressed, and each time we see the it, we can't help giggling about it. Thank you!
