I love this man, and his face. I have been on a mission as of late to learn more truths in the art of caricature, trying to further understand, myself and my decisions. Reworking my coloring and taking advice from anyone willing. I wanted to thank personally Aaron Philby for his time spend discussing caricature theory with me. Thanks again, Aaron. :) A lot of inspiration went into this one. from Aaron Philby, Andrea Gerstmann, Marlo Meekins, and Brian Oakes to Kev Jackson, Dan Hay, Ty Jones and Mister Singelton himself. Looking forward to staying focused and trying to learn as I get ready for the 2011 ISCA. Thanks everyone. :)
This is my favorite Obama so far. All except the slightly too thick lines on the top of the head and cheeks. I liked everything else.
If you're wondering why he's swearing in with his left hand, by all means...keep wondering. If you figure it out. Tell me, because I don't know why.
I didnt get a chance to take pictures of all of them but here are a few. This year around I did a total of 12 sketches, each that I was happy with for the most part. A big improvement from last years one actually drawing that I didn't even color. Had a lot of fun and learned a lot from all the amazing art. If you've never been to or heard of Cripple Con, look it up. Great fun. cripplecon.com. Thanks everyone :)
