    Talking A colourful mate caricature .. (and ref)

    Well then, here's our dear Alkatratzer .....

    I hope he's recognizable and You like the purposedly deviced style.
    Watercolour on one layer ...

    Thank You, dear Sandra, Paul and Katie!
    Actually the fault (the merit, I'm kidding) was Jules', because she started a Paint an Avatar thread in the Project section ...
    Have a look there too (and contribute in case) if You like to ...

    Thank You, dear Amanda! The initial idea was to use primary and secondary colours only (the ones he uses) or primary and mixes thereof, but I eventually kept it colourful with a slightly broader range of hues I picked intuitively.
    The black and white of his jail pijama is instead based on white (all colours) and black (ansence of any colour).

    You're welcome Jules! Alkratzer was changed into Akatratzer, i.e. a guest of Alcatraz prisons ...

    So clever Caesar, extremely well observed. Love that you've worked Al's colourfulness (paint and personality) into this portrait.
    He may want to give that referee gurnsey a wash before taking to the field
