WOW, it's being a while since my last post, sorry about that... Today I delivered one my most complex works, not for the caricature it self but for the amount of work in a short time. I drew 35 people in just a couple of weeks. Taking in consideration that I work full time and have a family to take care of, there wasn't much time left. I had to change my style to more cartooning to be able to finish it on time... my fingers hurt.
oh! BTW all that people are all my coo-workers, can you spot me ;)
Last couple of challenges for caricaturama showroom 3000 have been Bill Cosby and Liam Neeson. I don't know what is going on? I like these drawings but there is something missing, they don't have "punch" I don't know what it is? I think it is time to sketch and sketch and try to find what I'm missing... You know?
Last week challenge on Caricaturama 3000 was Alan Rickman. I started with a first idea but half way down the painting I realized that I wasn't capturing any feeling or character into the painting. So, I started a new one, this time I went more for a feeling, trying to capture my vision of "Snape", what I think he looks like from reading the books few times, of course having the actor as a huge reference... I'm really happy with the final result :)
This week on Caricaturama S. 3000 we are honoring Japan, so I decided to paint Ken Watanabe
