Black Spot Thank you I'm going back to life drawing soon, I'll make sure I post them, cheers.
Zephyr X Hiya, it's a while since I looked at all this from the start, thanks very much for taking the time Sophia and Vivenne were fun to draw, Viv is definitely a caricature in real life, almost too easy lol I'm taking a break from the Wanda pic, but I'll get back to it. Thanks again!
Your caricatures are nice but I'm sure you know that. What really stood out to me were those watercolor pieces of the rocks. You took something boring and made it lovely to look at. That camel is badass too. Keep it up.
Thanks Flanagan Yeah I noticed that too about her head but I was already committed to it so I was going to fix it in Photoshop and forgot.
Jephyr X Thanks very much Yeah I love Druckers style, he was an early influence along with Rockwell of course and I've just finished reading The complete book of caricature by Bob Staake: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Boo...178658&sr=1-79 It's a good read and he references Drucker alot with all the other greats (I also discovered this too just now http://www.deadlinedemon.com/ might be my christmas present to myself ) Cool you're up for something, no worries about timeframe, usually things pick up before Christmas for me too, anytime is good after that
Blackspot Thanks Wow your hubby must have a few tales to tell from that?

zou Thanks I've gone over the hair a bit and also left the head the original shape (the first version I'd altered in PS and don't like it as much) thanks for the crit. I totally missed self portrait day
update some CA peeps, the caricature's a commission for someone at work, a watercolour doodle and the start of a photo study
Those 'blast from the past' drawings are amazing! Lots of fun.
It also seems that through all these portraits and caricatures, you can now control a wide range of varying facial features. There's lots of variation in those faces, and it often takes you just a few lines to indicate them. Pretty good. I was hoping to see you participate in this years International Self Portrait day, but I didn't spot you. (or I missed your entry)
I like the train sketches, you must have referenced your own hand. I especially like the approach, trying both observational and construction.
If anything, Id advice more value/form practice. Most of your work relies heavily on lineart, even finished work. Things occasionally look flat. I think value studies would really reinforce your work by adding feel of solidity and mass. Will affect linedrawings too.
