This past week challenge on Caricaturama Showdown 3000! was Hulk Hugan. Well, I won first place with my piece. Something cool is that I tried something new for me. I did a small test to make the image 3D.
To see the 3D effect try this: look at them and relax your eyes, so they actually drift apart. As they do this, guide them so the two images drift into three, until the image in the middle pops into alignment as your stereo image. You are now compositing the left and right images on top of each other, and letting your brain focus on this image alone. Once you get it there, you can easily lock it into place.
I was invited to participate on a group caricature of the Spanish Football team to celebrate their victory on the Wold Cup. Several caricaturists were asked to draw a player. My assignment was to draw Gerard Piqué. I have to tell that I really enjoyed doing it. I´ll post the whole team once everybody finishes theirs.
I really enjoyed doing this one. It is based on Gjon Mili's photography "Picasso's Flashlight Centaur" taken on 1949. I think this series of drawings with light is fantastic, of course you have to imaging it was 1949.
I Love LOST. Actually I'm watching it right now... :) I drew Locke a couple of years ago. I'm going to try to find it and post it here to see the difference. :) I'm happy with the result, it might look like a lot of work but actually it was around 10 hours?
Well, I've been working on this one for a loooong time. She's Vanessa, my wife :) I struggled to get a sketch that I really liked in the beginning. And them I just kept rendering and rendering until I couldn't get any further. This is the caricature that I have put more time and effort in. I’m really happy with the result and she liked it too, so it means it is good :) She is my first critic and support, I wouldn't be here without her. TQM ;)
A sketch of Russian sensation Eduard Khil. I did it during my lunch so around an hour. He has one of the funniest videos I've ever seen, check it out... and he wrote his own lyrics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oavMtUWDBTM
My good Argentine friend from Sherbrooke (Quebec) who live in Montreal, Ignacio :D I just saw his profile picture and I thought, "wow this is a good one to paint". So I painted him :) (small one it took me a couple of hours)
BTW, he is an amazing industrial designer who was designing a few years ago the cellphones that we know now-days, check this out: link
