>Gareth Bale

>

Tonight I did a full body caricature of Gareth Frank Bale (born 16 July 1989) is a Welsh footballer who currently plays for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and the Wales national team. I’ve had a lot of requests for soccer players but have had a hard time finding good images to work with. This one, posted below for comparison, was a pretty good image.

>Stephen Colbert

>

Tonight I Just felt like doing a portrait, so after an hour of trying to decide who I wanted to caricature, I finally settled on Stephen Colbert. He has some interesting features like that one wild ear. He was on a blue background so I decided to stick with the color scheme. I’ve provided the original image I worked with below for comparison. I think I’m going to do a soccer player tomorrow. I’m still looking for Heavy Metal stars and I’m taking requests provided I have a good image to work with.

>George Wein ~ "Jazz Master"

>

I’ve been fixing computer problems all day today so I didn’t get to do the caricature I wanted. I decided to do a quick one to have something to post tonight. I chose George Wein named a “Jazz Master” in 2005 by the National Endowment for the Arts. I did some experimenting on this one with recreating skin textures where they were totally lost. It was a good exercise and I learned a couple of tricks. It’s late…off to bed.

I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

>Bill Clinton – Still Kickin’

>

Tonight I did a manipulated caricature of Bill Clinton. I know he’s not in the news much these days but I never caricatured him before so I decided to give it a go. Me makes a great subject. I’ve posted the original image I worked with below for comparison. Now it’s time to do something a little more wild and crazy.

>My Life Morphed by Rodney Pike

>

Tonight I have a morphing video I created for one of my Behance Network projects which I’ve posted on my YouTube Channel and was put together using FantaMorph by Abrosoft. It features some of my photo manipulations and caricatures cropped for the face morphing. This was a learning process, so the next one will be much better. This is a very short video, just over 3 minutes but was a huge file size, just under 2gb so It took for ever to upload to YouTube. Hope you like it. I’ll be back to photo manipulations and caricatures tomorrow.

I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

>James Hetfield of Metallica Head Caricature

>

This is a photo manipulated caricature head study of James Hetfield of Metallica that I used in a previous project. I thought the Heavy Metalers out there may like to see it. I’m planning on doing AC/DC next. Anyone know of any good images?

I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
