    Wasp cover(+step by step), caricatures etc. +random ork 30/07

    hi folk, man this takes quite some courage for a noob like me to post among the quality stuff that is floating around these days...then again, it is always an inspiration and orientation, have a long road ahead :happy:
    this is not up to the bar, but you have to start somewhere, right?

    right, the stuff I´m showing here was for a larger project, our school´s so called "Abitzeitung", basically a magazine for the guys that graduated this year from our high-school. normally, there aren´t any illustrations in these, but I saw a chance of finally getting some work out(even if it´s mainly for the parents and grands, you know ) and got into gear.
    it was a long time project, started rather small, I planned to invest 10min per caricature, which proofed to be fantastically foolish. In retrospective, I spend a sum of nearly 300 hours on the caricatures and under 20 for the cover.
    I learned a ton, so it was great for me. my claims always leveled up when I finished around 20 portraits, so I revised some around 5 times(they started really like crap, if I find some beginnings I might show them )
    the rest is some fun on 4 of the caricatures and a pseudo t-shirt design I had some fun with(scanned drawing + ps-luv), and a personal piece for an exhibition.
    ahhh...forgot, just because I´m such a nerd I did some robuts after IDIOT APATHY, who inspired me heaps, and they ARE fun to do hehe

    sooo, enough rambling, on to the art, comments and crits are highly welcome

    //ehh, how do I change the sequence of attached images? or do I have to consider this before uploading? arg

    Darkside, your caricatures are great! Lots of 'em too! Each one easily identifiable as an individual. Very expressive and clearly demonstrates your talent. I tell ya what I don't see, which is equally demonstrative of talent... is HANDS!!

    I want you to go buy Bridgman's book of 100 hands and copy the ENTIRE book into your notebooks. Then draw as many pairs of hands as you have faces here. How's that for a task!!

    The thing is, the Head and the hands are the most expressive and complicated shit on the planet. (Well, the body too) Once you get them down, you KNOW you can do anything else. Natch? But start with the hands!

    Go!

    sorry folks, i'm in a hurry here, so i'll keep this in german:

    fantastischer aufwand fuer ne abizeitung hab letztes jahr an unserer mitgewirkt und wollte ebenfalls karikaturen fuer jeden schueler machen.
    da ich letztendlich aber die gesamte zeitung plus filmprojekt mit einem freund im alleingang gestalten durfte (nicht alle opfern gerne fuer sowas ihre zeit...), blieb nicht genug zeit. rueckblickend schade... also, grosse bewunderung von mir tolle karikaturen und ein irre guter ductus in den gemalten sachen. wie alt bist du? moechtest illustration beruflich betreiben?

    wenn nicht das Schnepfenpack schlechthin unsere abizeitung gemacht hätte wär da bestimmt mehr von mir drin als der Kursbericht zum LK Kunst ^^

    btw: du kannst die bilder "aus dem attatchment rahmen holen" und in dem post positionieren wo du willst

    Hey darkside,

    respect on the effort you put into that abizeitung... I remember back in the days I didn't have the nerve to do a lot of illustrations for mine... I endet up contributing a handful, so I know what I'm talking about

    Your charicatures are really great, I'm sure you learned a lot drawing that many! Keep it up, you're art is really going somewhere!

    cheers.t

    those are some amazing caricatures. the angel, well, not sure what to think about that (which may be the purpose entirely); great work.
