I love all the colors used in it to create the skin tones…I really like the vividness of the watercolor. I plan to do more caricatures and/or portraits like this in the future. I really want to add more colorful pieces to my portfolio…
To finish off this image, I think I will overlay my decorative inking style on top, after applying another coat of watercolor. I’m really excited for this piece, and hope it will impress the committee at the meeting, the author I’m working with is attending. O___O
These are all relatively quick sketches and even quicker digital colorings… Technical aspects of these illustrations are not exact… and were never meant to be. These were all simply for the enjoyment of creating caricatures of friends, and are meant as gifts of appreciation to my friends for their love and support of me and my work.
…Now that the 2011 caricatures are done… I can get on to 2012! Cheers!
Here’s a sneak peek at the project I’ve been rambling about in the previous posts ^-^. These are just two small sections of two different pages. There are FIVE 14” x 17” pages total, all filled like the samples you see above. ^-^
Like I said…this is the most epic fan art/ caricature piece I’ve done thus far in my budding illustration career. I’m so excited about this piece, every time I look at it I smile. However, my hand hurts like H.E. double hockey sticks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >_< But I want to get this done before my birthday (on Wednesday)!! I work tomorrow at both of my jobs, so I don’t have time to work on this… Same issue on Tuesday… Looks like I’m going to pull a half-nighter tonight ^-^’

Here’s how far I got on the sketch yesterday. I inked the lines and now I’m going in and adding my decorative details. I am still deciding whether or not to whip out my colored pencils or pastels and coloring this. (My tablet is currently out of commission *tears for days*)
