Caricature artists incorporate a good likeness of the subject. Exaggeration of the subject's features is the main characteristic of caricature art. A good caricature say something more about the person than a plain photograh.

Different artists work differently. Some start with general structure. Some start with one area of the face, develop it and then move on to the next part. What is important is a goo piece of art at the end. How you got there is irrelevant.
