My wife and I recently got into the card biz and I thought it would be cool to use our caricature instead of a photo. The problem, I did a caricature of me months ago so I had to do one of her. I know I continue to sell out and not push my painting skills but how I justified laziness this time was wanting to match my half-assed attemp on my face. This morning I was pumped! I just saw the amazing caricatures over at Marcus Sakoda's blog and I said I was going to attack it! But now I'm tired and needed to get it done tonight. Oh well, there will be more.

All of these faces have something in common, they all came from a porno. Remember back in the days when I used to watch porn to do anatomy studies? Well, because of caricature I swear all I look at is faces now. I am now officially a face whore. It's totally weird, I know. The first two girls came out of a different movie and the rest came out of another. Pretty funny.
I drew these heads yesterday and decided to put color on them tonight before bed.

What can I say about Christina Hendricks from Mad Men? OMG! This is a woman that can fill a bikini! I've watched a few episodes of Mad Men but none of them had her in them so I don't if she's a good actress or not. I just know as long as she keeps her figure, it doesn't matter.

This is my third pic of V's Anna, what's up with that? Well, I'll quit painting Anna when she quits being hot. I think you all know by now I love evil bitches and Anna is about as evil as they come. Morena Baccarin does an awesome job playing the character, now if only we could get her in a thong...

I do a lot of reading and studying to ultimately be a better artist and a better person. To really utilize what I study I feel you should apply it immediately and teach it to someone. Well, applying it immediately has been the easy part, teaching it, not so much. One of my new goals for this year is to share more of the techniques or principles that I use with others.
I use a quote by Stephen Covey that governs everything I draw and/or color. "The most important thing, is keeping the most important thing, the most important thing." That may sound silly to some but what it means for me is to make sure the eye goes to where you want it to go. The people in the background or a glass on a table probably should not be as well lit as the main characters unless it is pertinent to the story.

The only thing I really knew Nicki Manaj for was screwing up a perfectly good Ludacris song, that is until the new Trey Songz video came out. Holy frickin' moly she's hot in that video! Though plenty of credit goes to the technical crew because it is a beautiful well shot video. But I have to admit, Nicki has a hot bod.

I did this sketch for jamesimpaladaeggman over at deviantart.com. I think I told him I would have this done around Turkey Day so yeah...it took longer than I thought. I put a little bit more into the color and lines than my regular "sketch" work because it took so long.

You know how I said I wasn't going to post my live caricatures here, that I was going to post them on my other site? Well I guess the caveat is, unless there's T&A involved. I didn't "work" an event, I just drew a few caricatures at a friend's house on New Year's Eve. This is actually a caricature of my wife and her friend. What makes this funny is my wife's friend (the brunette) is WAY conservative and does things like wear underwear, so that's what makes this a little over the top.
I drew it with Copics but I scanned it in and colored it in Photoshop.
