Duck Soup

Well, this was the next one of the caricature challenges that me, Dionysis and Natalia are doing. This was my own suggestion, having been a great fan of this actor since a child, always loving that unique and easily recognizable face of his.
Here's the caricature itself. I am actually quite pleased with it, compared to my previous two drawings I've done so far. Then again, this time I really went carefully along with it, and also had the life line of having done this in photoshop, having the ever helpful ctrl+z to save me ^^

And below here we have the studies I did before drawing the final image, using these as help for when designing and drawing it. Numbers show the order I made them in, and all were based on different photographs of said actor.

Next week is Carles Puyol. Never heard of him, but this picture of him makes me like him ^^

Sketches from La Palma

Well, another post before July comes to a close :) For a about a week ago I was in La Palma, one of the Canary Islands, visiting my first home. It was a real joy walking around this paradise island again. I'll put up pictures on Facebook later from the actual place.

First of then, is a collection of life sketches (except one of them, now that I look closely, but oh well) that I did, often when we were eating somewhere due to the comfortable sitting position.

Then I made these doodles, mostly little parodies of those lovely comic book covers from the 60's, including some more normal doodles in the corner.
And last we have a lovely drawing made by lovely Teresa, age 7. One of the more interesting depictions of a Palm Tree I have ever seen. In fact, this could be the very palm tree that makes up 'La Palma'! :D

I choose more!

The last 3 of my current Pokemon Party in Pearl :) Will probably replace Machoke later, since he's not all that interesting, but I recently evolved him ^^ Now I just need someone to trade him with to get a Machamp :D (I'm such a nerd ^^) And the ugly thing at the bottom is a Bibarel, my HM slave :P

I choose you!

I found my 'old' copy of Pokemon Pearl today, and decided to play it again. Last time I did I got stuck in this cave and gave up. But lo and behold, I got further! I even got to finally catch the Pokemon on the cover! So I decided to draw the Pokemon that I had in my party at the moment. Wanted to publish them today, so only 3 so far, will update this post tomorrow with the other three.

Well, here's the next caricature as an exercise between my peers. This time it was Angelina Jolie.

Personally I think it looks better than my previous Hendrix one, but I think mostly because it looks more polished despite being all pencil. Unfortunately, once more she's not all that caricaturized. Her lips are a little larger and her head shape is a little longer, but thats about it. Lets see what celebrity Dionysis chooses for us to harass next ^^
