View Full Version : Arnold Schwarzenegger Caricature (art)

02-20-2005, 05:41 AM
Arnold is one of my heroes, so I decided to do a quick rendition of him in his most enduring persona - the "I am the king, and you are a girly man" smirk. oh, if any of you havne't seen Pumpin' Iron, go rent it, its a greak flick.

4 hours, graphite pencil on paper + photoshop + corel painter.

Nice work. But I think caricatures work better if you explore the jerky side of everyone. He would be more expressive with his large, big teeth smile, or doing reference for something that he had done, like his movies, or his election. You could have painted him, too.

A really nice likeness and I like the proportions like the tree trunk neck. I've got a few nitpicky crits, though. Hope you don't mind:

The shading on his nose makes me think that it's indented at the tip.

His right eye is looking up while his left is pointed toward the viewer.

To emphasize the smirk, I think his mouth should be at an angle (about 20%).

Shading on his neck looks about twice as dark as that on his face.

Is this for fun? I'd love to see more of your caricatures.

Looks good but a caricature need to be more over the top IMO.

I love it. Arnold is really a character. The only thing that bugs me about this is the wrinkles in the neck that extend into the right side of the image. They seem a bit to defined compared to the rest of the washed out neck in that area

Darn.. Ilikesoup saw it first... but I noticed the thing with the eyes too. I don't know if it was intentional but it looks weird.

Yo..Arnie looks cool dude.:thumbsup:

It looks good, but for a caricature it seems sorta 'blah'. It needs to be so witty that if Arnold were to see this he would want to hunt you down and terminate you.
