>Brazilian Novelist Paulo Coelho Caricatured – Signing

>

Tonight I’m posting three images of Brazilian Novelist Paulo Coelho taken by Photographer Marcos Borges from Odense, Denmark as he was presenting the caricature portrait I did of Mr. Coelho from a photograph taken by Marcos as a gift. Marcos also got the Writer to autograph two other matted copies for Marcos and myself. It should be on the way in the mail now. Looking forward to it. Below is the completed portrait and source image as well as an interview with Mr. Coelho.

The finished manipulated caricature of Brazilian Novelist Paulo Coelho. The original image was taken by Photographer Marcos Borges from Odense, Denmark. Marcos has plans to take the image to Mr. Coelho and get it autographed…actually two copies, one for each of us. I like guy’s features. He was a lot of fun. One of the few that went real fast. Below is the original source image. Before this there was a liquify sketch posted here.

>Eric Pouhier – A Google+ Caricature Commission

>

Today I posting a portrait I finished yesterday of Eric Pouhier, AKA +Eric Pouhier of Google+. Eric’s interests are Photography, Mathematics and Engineering. Eric originates from France, hence the background and added French touches. There’s also a “Math Doesn’t Suck” test book as well as a medal I made for a music competition he won in 1986. This was a really fun project. Eric had no specific requests so I was able to do my thing…what ever that is. Eric supplied several nice source images with some great expressions which really makes my job easier and more enjoyable. I can’t tell you how may times people send me stoned faced pics wanting me to make it funny. If you look at the source images below, there were two images that I liked but couldn’t decide which one to use. Thankfully with Eric’s rock steady poses, I was able to take the best parts of both with the parts matching up almost perfectly. Below the source pics is a capture of my work in progress, (WIP) canvas just as it was on my Cintiq.

>Brazilian Novelist Paulo Coelho – WIP Sketch

>

Tonight I’m posting a work in progress (WIP) of Brazilian lyricist and novelist Paulo Coelho which I hope to have finished tomorrow. This is a quick liquify sketch to be used as reference for the final piece. The image below was taken by Photographer Marcos Borges from Odense, Denmark. Marcos has plans to take the image to Mr. Coelho and get it autographed…actually 2 copies, one for each of us. It will be cool to hang in my little gallery I’m growing in my house which consists mostly of art from my friends.
