ID:	92321 I am almost done. Have no idea what I will do with the background. Or maybe leave it like this.. Black. There is one person to do also. But I still haven't received a OK reference picture.

And still waiting for some better reference pictures. But it's coming together now. It took more time then I expected.But I have a lot of fun doing it :-)

    What to do with the background? Crop it out. Unless you have some reason for it being staged this way making it some kind of screen for projecting something like the company logo or whatever -- believe me, it is not your friend.

    If you're going to put in words, again, like a logo that goes across like a banner and you need all that empty space for a late addition, I would crop the top and extend the bottom like an outside border on a graphics print job. Wide and low is a cool format and quite legitimate. But you could easily kill all your great work with cluttering up the image with senseless afterthoughts.

    Feature your picture as a portrait sequence (cropped appropriately) and frame it with any graphic you want to add (like text or merely a frame). Keep the focus on the people. That's the delightful part of this.

    Good to see you're getting more interest in your caricature work. You deserve it!

    I didn't make the deadline this time. It should be finished last week. No commission,just a training piece from my side. So they lost there interest .

    Well if the last head had shown up on time. . . Yeah, deadlines tend to matter. Sorry you learned the hard way.

    It still looks great.
