Kim Kardashian

From Wikipedia: Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian (born October 21, 1980 is an American socialite, reality television star, model and occasional actress. She is known for starring in Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the E! reality series that she shares with her family, and its spin-offs including Kourtney and Kim Take New York. Here is my caricature of Kim followed by the photo I used for reference. I started this out in Photoshop cs6, and I wanted to get a painterly look, but stay away from from the usual custom textured brushes I made for myself in Photoshop, So I carried the painting over to Corel painter 12 and used several of the oil brushes and the Acrylic captured bristle brush to achieve this look. I wanted it to remain fairly loose, so I'm pretty happy with the outcome. Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy!!! Kim_caricature_practice_001 106691451

Kim Kardashian Work In Progress

Here is a screen grab of a kim Kardashian Caricature I am working on. I find it harder to caricature women, so I will probably do what I normally do when I find something difficult. I tackle it head on:) I will most likely try to do a pic with all three sisters. Here is where I am at so far with Kim. Done in Photoshop cs6. Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy!!! Kim_Kardashian_WIP

Monochromatic Study

This is another assignment from Jason Seiler's Caricature course on Schoolism. This time a Monochrome painting study of a model the Jason provided. I guess this guys name is Lupe. At least that's what the file was named. There were other pics, but I just loved this guys face. Great shapes and details to play off of. Below is the sketch done with red prismacolor col-erase pencil and then scanned in a painted in Photoshop. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!!!! Lupe_pencils_001 Lupe_monochrome_study_001

Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne

Here are a couple sketches of rap stars Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and lil' Wayne. I just sketched these out to stay loose, then I decided to do a tonal value painting over The Kanye sketch. One of the assignments in the Jason Seiler caricature course at schoolism was to take one of Jason's sketches and do a tonal painting over his pencils. I thought it would benefit me more to practice over my own sketches though. here they are, enjoy!!! Kanye_tonal_study sketches_9_7_2012

Hard Surface modelling

Trying my hand at some Hard Surface modelling in z-brush. Not quite comfortable with it yet, but I have been watching some of Mike Jensen's workshops. Hopefully I'll get it down. You can check his work out here http://mikejensen.daportfolio.com/ Still I like what I came up with for a character concept. This is a wip, so I'll be adding some more detail then painting the model in Photoshop. And below the sculpt are some more figure drawing done for the Bacteria Incubator forum's weekly figure drawing thread. Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy!!!

Sir Anthony Hopkins

Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins,(born 31 December 1937), best known as Anthony Hopkins, is a Welsh actor of film, stage, and television, and a composer. Considered to be one of the greatest living actors, Hopkins is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs and its sequel, Hannibal. Other prominent film credits include The Mask of Zorro, The Lion in Winter, Magic, The Elephant Man, 84 Charing Cross Road, Dracula, Legends of the Fall, The Remains of the Day, Amistad, Nixon, The World's Fastest Indian, and Fracture. Hopkins was born and brought up in Wales. Retaining his British citizenship, he became a U.S. citizen on 12 April 2000. Hopkins' films have spanned a wide variety of genres, from family films to horror. As well as his Academy Award, Hopkins has also won three BAFTA Awards, two Emmys and the Cecil B. DeMille Golden Globe Award. Hopkins was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1993 for services to the arts. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003, and was made a Fellow of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 2008.
