A few of the caricatures I drew during the week.

Tori Amos

supposed to be Trent Reznor, although I don't blame you if you think he's Snape.

The latter two are for YouToon Cartoons, the caricature branch of ACAS.

Playing with Graphitone.

finished version.

Playing with watersoluble graphite - Derwent watersoluble Sketching pencils and Graphitone.   It's such a novel concept to me and it's kind of weird, and totally wonderful.  I like exploring new art materials.

I did quite a bit of layering.  I went over the picture with the watersoluble graphite three times, and in the end i think I overdid the shading on the faces, so I adjusted it in Photoshop.  I guess this is an exercise in practicing values and I'm sure I'll do better next time.

I painted almost the entire picture by picking up the colour from the graphite stick using a wet brush and apply it to the paper, because I don't like the washed pencil look.

Made some finishing touches with white ink.

"I am not an artist, but I can picture us together"

That's the message my client wants to send to his girlfriend for her birthday.

Apsley Cherry-Garrard

This is supposed to be a caricature of Apsley Cherry-Garrard; polar explorer and author of The Worst Journey in the World. He was one of the youngest members of Robert F. Scott's Terra Nova expedition (1910-13).  In July 1911 he, with Wilson and Bowers, were tasked to find some Emperor penguin eggs at Cape Crozier for scientific purposes.  They secured three eggs, which are now in the collection of Natural History Museum, London.

I was kind of experimenting with some water soluble graphite pencils (Derwent Sketching).

Portrait After Dark Sept 2013

hat tip to OIC of course

Special edition to honour Ashwin.  He's the most fabulous masala Bollywood-esque hero starfish you'll ever meet, but you haven't met him yet.

When you will, though, you'll be star-struck!
