I thought it would be appropriate to show you my step-by-step with painting my Andy Serkis. I have been struggling with finding my style with the involving the new digital medium. I really like to sketch right with pencil first, pen & Ink, water color, gouache, and then digital. I hope you like that I share my progress in this painting. I like that every week on Caricaturama Showdown we all pick the same famous person and Caricaturize our own interpretation!
I try to stay specialized in my art, but I don’t mind a challenge, so I took on a logo design. He wanted something I normally don’t do and that is something that look very simple but it had to be very sharp and everything clear behind the logo. It will be used in a relator video and all his marketing video. here are the steps I took from the end ing results.
I need to take a break last night from working on my current commission of a mexican migrant working passing the border. The client wants alot of changes, and Im lucky he wanted it digital. So I took a break and played around with my gouache of a current person “Michael C. Hall” “Dexter” he is some kind of serial killer on a show I do not watch and can’t remember right now ( too lazy to look up, not important). I was trying to find a regular medium I really like with my water colors. The only thing I don’t like in this piece is the greens are not working especially in forehead. I had things to do today, until 6pm which is the time the deadlne is on facebook: “caricaturama showdown 3000”. I was reminded yesterday that to be carfule in boasting and I believe it all because of Jesus I have the power to paint and build the kingdom here on earth. My Paster Randy Evans from http://www.gracechristian.com meansioned this while reading Acts 12:21 look it up but basically they talk about how this king Heron wore this really great and silver shiny shirt that made all the peoples think he was God, He took all that glory for him self and did not redirect towards our saviour Jesus. God made him die on the spot of tape worm eating him up! (I should have painted the Dexter serial killer like that)
1 Corinthians 10:31 – ‘So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.’
Here is a current Caricature Portrait done of Tom Waits for the Caricaturama Showdown group on Facebook. I had fun painting with Acrylics and tried to create a mood that is similar to his blues music. The original is 5-7″ on Canvas. I should have really tried to exaggerated alittle more to be recognized on this group, but maybe I wanted to do more of a portrait this time because I needed more for my portfolio. I hope everyone is doing good, and I always like to keep in touch.
I can’t show the whole project, until after Saturday. But here is some the high lights from the final studio Caricature. I wish I was allowed a bigger budget, but the client did not mind seeing more of a outline type of art. I was up late soo I am hitting the sack, in the mean while have a great day! I love comments soo please feel free!
I was playing around in my Moleskin sketch book drawing Russell Crowe. I used Markers, Color pencils and then clean up in photoshop. Go check out on Facebook “Caricaturama 3000 showdown” and It is fun to see what other artist do.
