Gimme Face #5 Sly cry
If you haven't yet worked it out, this weekly thread involves everything to do with the FACE or HEAD. Getting the face or head features is one of the most important skills to learn as an artist, especially as a figuretive or character artist. Basicly you mess up, and its totaly noticable. Theres nothing worse than creating a great piece of art, except all the character faces look dead or lifeless.
So here's the plan, each week I'll give you a project that involves a face or head, this could be anything from basic line structure to full colour images, realistic human face to animated hamsters, stone bust to famous faces such as charlie chaplin or sweeny todd. Basicly everything goes, and it may not be just one image, some projects may include multiple faces, similer to the spartan thread.
Project #5 Sly cry
1. Create an image of Sylvester Stallone, in one of his famous movie characters (eg- rocky, rambo, cobra, etc..)
2. Expression - crying
3. Head and face only, as usual.
Deadline - 3rd june
well now you`re talking caricature skills.
that`s a whole different ballgame...
I`m losing track of what the point of this activity is, buddy.

not exacly, becouse how you approach it is totally up to you, if you want to, you can go the photorealistic approach , or manga style, or whatever other style you wish. Producing a character of a real life person or a super hero theres no difference, only difference being your now having to concentrate a little more on your drawing skills. The thread is called "gimme face", theres no statement saying it will be only expressions. The whole point of this thread is to deal exclusivly on the head/face area, other than that, its totally open, so weekly threads could be anything.
brather: wow, you were quick... good expression and he's recognizable, especially the right eye is Sly's...
I'm in too, but I will need much more time, I think. after work I'll start drawing!
Caricatures is my thing and Stallone has just the face for it.
Flash+Photoshop based on a pencil sketch... it wasn't easy. and I can't draw hair
well done guys, you got another 12 hours on here untill i post the new thread,
