    Don Knotts caricature WIP

    Hi all

    Here is a caricature I have been struggling with. Skin and hair mostly for some reason. Still lots of work to do overall but seeking comments (just started the eyes). thanks everyone!

    Ha! You have captured him perfectly in my opinion! The artistic ability to transform a character into a caricature and have them as recognizable as you have done here is an art within an art! I have never been very good at doing that so this is fascinating for me to watch. The only thing left (in my opinion) on this would be some highlights on his skin (some wetness) for a more realistic 3D appearance. Well done Brent!

    Thanks Sketch, There is something else bugging me about it that i just can't put a finger on. I will try to finish it up over the next couple days or so. Here is the original sketch that lies underneath the paint...

    Just my two cents.

    I would make the irises much smaller, so the eyeballs look bigger.
    The chin line could be a little bit longer-shaped. Makes for his face to look longer, and add to the funny expression. This way you free up space to lower the mouth, giving him a larger upper-lip.

    Great to see you abandoned the straight centre-line,and curved it.

    I like to see the progress of the colouring stages. Oil paint ?

    Great suggestions Hanzz! I'll give them a try. It is the Oil Paint tool with the thinners turned way up for a lot of it. I love that brush and honestly haven't experimented a ton but the new tools in AR3 hold a lot of potential and intrigue me. I love what you did with the stickers on the Freeman caricature. I'll dig into them but in the meantime, are they like creating a brush in Photoshop? I'd love to see a tut on it from you.

    Again, thanks Hanzz. Happy New Year!

    Okay, I think I'm done...

    To I enlarged the eyes, lowered the ears and enlarged the lobes, lengthened the upper lip a bit and muddled about with paint for awhile. Voila! I hope you enjoy. Cheers!
