man bobby those are awesome. i like the ali one especially. i'm a huge ali fan and he's got a very certain "look" when he fights and you really captured it in this moment.

here's my contribution

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a110/thetrianglekid/laetitia_cgtalk.jpg

you know, just a girl i know (laetitia casta...i wish i knew her :sad: )

it's not really finished, but i like it as is. my main focus was her eyes, nose and mouth. i used a mechanical pencil cuz it's all i could find and the thing would not leave any dark marks. i had to really try to get anything dark, but it let me use the white space i guess.

it took about an hour total.

i really enjoy drawing portraits because many times it is the smallest things that makes or breaks the entire drawing (a single spot in the iris, or slight bump/line on the nose) and i've yet to figure out a system of finding those things, but i'm trying.

here's the reference if anyone's interested

Chiu I love your work. Being a large fan of caricatures, hell I drew them to put myself through college, I have to say your caricatures are very diffrernt then the current schools out there (ie. the drucker school, opdebeek school, kruger school). Make no mistake kruger is awesome and his works blow my mind, but I am becoming a bit tired of his clones. Anyways, fantastic stuff, original style and the best depiction of motion I have ever seen in a caricature.

Hi Rebecca I noticed that it says 3D caricatures as well...
Here's a still shot from a short film I made a few years back called "Cosbee." Not the best in the world.. but it's kinda funny to watch. Took me about 3 months if I remember correctly.

I have seen the sports images before, but they alway are great to look at. I think that they are some of the most beautiful drawings that I have seen posted on cgtalk, and some of the most brilliant representations of motion and dynamics I have seen anywhere.

Portraiture has been my favourite facet of traditional art for a good few years now. Bobby, I love your line and pencil work, your quality of line just blows me away, I'd love to know how long it took you before you got that good, how much you practiced. Here's the best of my portraits to date:

Brother Bernard, a Brother with the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God, sadly passed away earlier this year. Done in oils on board, took a good month to complete over the christmas hols:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v300/xephyri/cgtalk%20images/.Brother_Bernard.jpg

Stone Cold Steve Austin™, WWE's highest grossing wrestler, done in acrylic on textured paper, 6" x 8", took around 15 - 20 hrs:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v300/xephyri/cgtalk%20images/Stone_Cold_Steve_Austin.jpg

Chris Benoit™ WWE wrestler, (I started a series a couple of years back), acrylic on textured paper, 6" x 8" took about 12 - 15 hrs:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v300/xephyri/cgtalk%20images/Chris_Benoit.jpg

And finally, something I do on a professional basis as a sideline to my regular job. I work for a company which produces miniature paintings then frames prints of them to sell across the US. One of my favourites I did was of Benjamin Franklin, whose portrait appears on the $100 bill. I've also included a scan of me holding another miniature, to give you an idea of the size, 1.5" x 1.5"(they are painted in acrylic, with no magnifying devices and regular brushes). They take anywhere from 3hrs to 7-8 hrs:

Great work, looking really good! :)

hooraay thx rebecca

im doing one portrait everyday to practice nebz technique ... i dont like the little girl anymore ..its a bit boring , but i always post too fast when im excited lol

btw i wasnt thinking about sean penn ( dont even know that he looked like that when he was young ) but my old friend ----> Moe (http://img346.imageshack.us/my.php?image=97f0c3c79bf299c3b1144fbcea1165.jpg) from school :D

07-22-2005, 10:46 AM
Vahn,

Ok, that is just hilariously funny, because that portrait is just a dead ringer for Sean Penn in the early days, lol! :)

It's great to see that you've taken so well to Neb'z technique, I've yet to try it myself but am dying to, as I love his work! It looks like he may have spawned his own competition in you, Nebezial beware! :)

Keep up the great work, and keep on postin'! :)

Some folks were asking about the blurring technique which I used on the portrait I posted. Here is the description of that very simple technique: :)

(EDIT: Welllllll...they were really asking about Desp#2/Rog's technique, but Anyways...) :D

Once I've established all of the major features, exaggerating the lights and darks, I do the following:

1. Select All, Copy + Merge the existing Layers so I have one single Merged Layer.

2. Duplicate this MERGED Layer (Ctrl + J) ~ so now I have 2 MERGED Layers that are the same.

3. GAUSSIAN BLUR the top layer to your heart's content.

4. Add a mask to the top BLURRED Layer (click the mask icon in the Layers palette when you are on the Layer you want to mask) and use the black / white swatches to paint (using the Brush tool) the mask (black takes away the mask, white replaces it).

OR:

ERASE (not using the mask) using the Eraser tool set to a low opacity (25% - 50%) to erase only those areas that I want to be in sharper focus.

5. Copy + MERGE everything, and voila! Instant in~focus / out of focus image!

(I also continue painting after doing this initial blur...trying to have certain key features, like eyes, in focus, while leaving the receding edges of cheeks and neck more blurred).

:)

~Hope this helps. :)

hanzzz,

That is pretty funny, you definitely have the knack for caricatures! :) I would say that this portrait needs a bit of refining before it can be called finished, though. His left cheek ought to be separated from the area beneath his nose, as right now it exists as just one glob ~ and I think generally the painting strokes can be refined. I like the progress so far, however! Keep it up!! :)

Here is one I did a year ago. I did this after watching the Discovery Channel story on Nefertiti. I studied several photo references of the artifact and my version doesn't look a whole lot like it but I wanted her to look like a living person rather than a sculpture. I know the decoration around her neck is off. This is the actual size of the image and it is only 72 dpi. I worked many hours on this one. Thanks for looking.:)

Lol, no worries, you know how easily entertained we are here, any clips will be highly appreciated! :) Feel free to post here if you choose, or, if you feel more comfortable posting in the Animation forum, why not do that and then post a link here? :) Up to you.

Hello guys :)

This are one of my favourite portraits done in pencils.

This is Roman Polański done with pencils - 42x30cm
It took me about 5 to 7 hours to draw (it wasn't a continuous process) :).

And this is Keira Knightley, also done in pencils and in aproximately the same amount of time - size 42x30cm

And this is a portraiture of one of the most popular and famous actors in Poland - Bronislaw Wroclawski. I did this one for the man himself :) It's 70x50 cm - 10h

Since those are old pictures I don't have any WIP processes, sorry :/

But here is another of my works, that I'm working on right now. It's a portraiture of a polish actress who plays a polish male artist - Nikifor in a movie. Sorry for the poor quality, but it's a photo of the portrait.

Katea,

These are beautiful! Thanks for posting these, they're great! :thumbsup:

If you would like to do a Tutorial thread on your latest WIP, please feel free to do so ~ that would be great, if you have the time! :)

All you need do is create a new thread on the Anatomy Forum and call it TUTORIAL - *your title* - by Katea. No rush or pressure, just if you have the time. :)

Cheers! :)

Oh, my... I don't think if I am ready to do the WIP for anyone to see ;D
Especially that I don't follow any rules :) Sometimes I do the sketch sometimes I just start drawing starting with one of the eyes and go on :)

I'll see what I can do with a new portrait. I hope I'll be able to do it logically enough for people to understand what I'm doing ;)

Katea,

Lol, in fact, I think it's interesting for people to see how other artists really work ~ it takes the intimidation factor out of it, and encourages people to try new things. So no worries if the process itself isn't 'pretty'. :) But of course, doing a tutorial is totally up to you. :)

Cheers! :)

I don't know if this qualifies as a caricature -- more a spoof celebrity product endorsement.
Meet Boston Bruins great Gerry "Cheesy" Cheevers saying that famous tag line with a goalie mask on. :D

~Rebeccak

Heehee.
Not sure what part you don't get, but I'll explain as best I can.
Gerry Cheevers, nicknamed Cheesy, is saying "Behold, the power of cheese" through one of those old fashioned Friday the 13th goalie masks and it gets a bit muffled.
The stitches all over his mask? They were a Cheevers trademark. Supposedly every time he was hit on the mask with a hockey puck he'd make a stitch mark. Cheevers played net for Bobby Orr and the Bruins during their 1970 and 1972 Stanley Cup victories.
The NHL season starts in early October so I guess I'm a bit preoccupied.:love:
BTW, thanks for asking. I love to get all geeky about hockey.

Rebeccak
09-20-2005, 01:20 PM
Ilikesoup,

ROFL, thanks for that explanation...clearly I have not been following hockey since 1972, or else all would have been clear to me, lol! :scream: Great stuff, and pretty hilarious...now that I 'get' it, I can freely snarf soda thru my nose. :)

Cheers, :)

I didn't know there was a caricature and portrait thread too. My fave, I love to do portraits :)

Here's a caricature I did a while ago. My dad wanted Mick Jagger at his 60th party so I made a lifesize cartoon of him and hung him on the wall at his birthday party. I lost the original which sucks so all I have is the top half now.

Indeed I think this portrait is very expressive and strong.

zhuzhu love that knight sketch- do you plan to finish this one a bit more? would love to see that refined =)
I will disagree about "finishing" and refining it.
I think this is something that has been seen way too often especially in this site.
Over-realistic work over detailed, which grabs from the creativity and stregnth of the image.

I love this profile just the way it is. It is alive and has the creation process on it.

Beautiful work! I have to ask, though, did you paint directly on top of the photographs? I hope I'm not offending you ~ but I always ask when stuff looks super~photo realistic. ;)

Glad to have you on the forum! :) Hope to see some more of your work soon.

SaraD
11-08-2005, 07:07 AM
No, I am not painting over the photoreference. I have the reference on a second screen, and initially I use a grid to sketch the main features of the face. Then I start paint. A small area at the time.
What I am trying now is to get away from the too realistic style, and paint more lose - but it is soo difficult when you´re used to get "hang up" on every detail.

So it´s no cloning or overpainting. But a lot of blending :)

Rebeccak
11-08-2005, 10:24 AM

Cg_Icecube,

My apologies, as I did not see your post until just now! :)

Firstly, my thanks to you for enrolling in the CGWorkshop! :) It promises to be a lot of work and a lot of fun, and I am thrilled to welcome you aboard!

Hopefully by now you have ordered your book, though it won't be crucial for the first week ~ however, I highly recommend ordering it as soon as possible if you have not already done so, to allow for adequate shipping time. While the course is by no means solely based on the book, it is a tremendous reference and a book from which I think anyone would benefit. :)

Looking forward to working with you in the Workshop! :wavey:

Cheers, :)
