How to draw an 11 year old boy.

Harrison wanted his caricature to be a face and body in color, but when I asked him what he wanted to be doing in the picture, he couldn't come up with anything. He decided to let me figure it out on my own. I found out how old he was, and armed with only that information and my knowledge of what most 11 year old kids want, I went to work. So I drew him with big muscles and camouflage pants, holding a lightsaber in one hand and playing a video game with the other, and riding a dinosaur that's on a skateboard with a flaming skull on it. Needless to say, he loved it.
