I'm hoping to find some kind folks who fancy a challenge or just enjoys having a go at something. (I apologize upfront if this is the wrong area/not allowed) Basically I'm not that talented enough to do anything digitally, so that leaves me pretty limited but I know this place is full of people who are really skilled while having a great creative spark. Would anyone be open to having a go at creating some characterchures? Just sketches like these will do http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/045/4/f/CHARACTERCHURE_by_doubleyou_tee_eff.png Why? I'd like to use the images for a website i'm doing. I'll list a few people incase anyone is interested in taking part, thanks for reading.

Do You mean caricatures?
I've no idea of who the people You cited are and I think that, if also other mates in here are in the same situation, it would be helpful if You attach here some photo-views of each of them for possibly encouraging to perform what You're looking for.
What's the site address, BTW?
Cheers

OK, now I see. BTW, what are they doing with the zebra uniform of the Juventus? Just kidding LOL:o
I'll see what i can do although the great, specilized caricaturists here are Hanzz, Jonwood. Maybe You could address Your request to them to via PM ...

LOL! There's a story behind Juves shirts, which are linked with us and last year we opened their new stadium with them but we've since took the idea of borrowing one of their choice designs in respect of our two clubs.

Our away shirt. 71396

I certainly appreciate that very much so, also thanks for suggestion regarding Hanzz & Jonwood.

Interesting information, dear mate.
It really deserved a quick attempt on the first player then (although it's not that easy, not knowing them and with just one picture and view not so well enlightened to estimate the likeness).
Here are the basic B&W and a color version.
Obviously there are many caricature styles from the most essential linear one as for the comics to the most elaborated and features stretched ones. I cannot say I master them all decently enough.

Here's another one with a simplified comics style.

The first one is truly amazing! I don't mean to take anything from the others either, as they all made me chuckle but the first is outstanding! The detail, level of attention and style works very well. The 2nd, I straight away knew who it was and the likeness in all of them are very close. It must be difficult, which I fully understand what you say. In person you can pick up the behaviour of the subject and are closely able to work on the detail but I honestly wasn't expecting something of this magnitude. Awesome stuff Caesar!

May I be cheeky and make one further request? If I'm not too forward/demanding. (which I don't mean to be)

Would you be willing to have a go at drawing two players pushing a broken wheelbarrow? With one player doing the pushing, whilst another is inside the wheelbarrow looking surprised/joy-some that the wheelbarrow's wheel has come off?

Sounds strange, to be honest it is but we have a song about the wheelbarrow and having seen your 3 pieces of art made the idea pop into my head. 'I had a wheelbarrow, The wheel fell off, I had a wheelbarrow, The wheel fell off' It's rumored this was sung due to opposite fans chanting and due to their accent it sounded like what we chant. Ever since it's sort of stuck with us and although we've fallen in terms of divisions, having spent quite awhile in the basement league we're finally managing to actually fix the broken wheelbarrow. So when things go wrong, we say the wheels fell off. (Sorry to go on)

Thank you very much sincerely,
Joe

Great to see folks helping you out. I feel honoured that some pointed at me as having some expertise in the field.
As much as I like it, I cannot help you out on this.
A) I have absolutely no time left to do this.
B) I am a professional artist, and give - aways are not my major source of income.

I hope I don't come over as being high headed or feeling to good to do this ,or anything like that .I just hope you understand.
I tried to PM you back but something must have gone wrong there....

Yesterday I had noticed your response was wrapped inside my message, so I didn't notice it. (I had replied but I think I received a message that your inbox was full)

I certainly didn't take offense or feel you were letting me down, I just hoped I wasn't being intrusive. It was just a request and I very much appreciate that something along the lines of what I requested takes time, something which I didn't feel I would be able to gain help with but thought it was worth asking none the less. (people can only say no) :)

Your website is very nice, I took sometime to go through your work with amazement your work stunned me. The Lilly Allen one had me in stitches, along with quite a few others. Thank you Sincerely :)

I would hate to impose again on anyone.

Would anyone be open to drawing three players, holding a scarf which is the colours of black and white. which reads 'we back prideofnottingham.co.uk' I'd hate to be pain, as I am sure this is very time consuming. Similar style to Caesars drawing of the wheelbarrow?

Bart Bialkowski (middle) if possible with his keeper gloves around the two other players

I plan to use the above, if I can find someone with the spare time and kindness for some exposure the actual club have granted me. I didn't want to request it and leave no information, so please don't assume I automatically thought someone would take this on. (wouldn't want to seem rude)

Thanks for reading
