Thom Yorke caricature, Andrew Hickinbottom (3D)



Title: Thom Yorke caricature
Name: Andrew Hickinbottom
Country: United Kingdom
Software: 3ds max, mental ray, Photoshop

Ive been inspired by some caricature art recently and spent the last 3-4 days entheausiastically working on this image of the lead singer of Radiohead's very charismatic face.
My lack of experience with caricature art has meant that the likeness could be a lot better, but im very pleased with the result as it was very quick to do, and i was able to learn a little about Mental ray's materials and final gathering to produce a 'proper' looking render that i felt i have been unable to achieve in the past.
I felt like i have achieved and learnt something by doing this - a feeling i havent had for some time now.

It is entirely 3d with some minor colour control and level alteration in photoshop. Textures were all cut and pasted from various high-res photos of Thom Yorke. stubble & eyebrows generated using max's hair plugin, then turned to geomertry.

Here are some WIP images and closeups:

Cool-I like the style of the hair.

I'm not sure of the likeness overall but the mouth is spot on.
Eyes like his wouldn't be easy to get right in realism or caricature.

Great caricature man! I love the style that you put in all your works! It's a pleasure see again characters that aren't orcs, sexy women or hyper muscular men and comeback and see cartoon or caricature style. For this all, congratulations and 5 stars!

Lovely, I like the fact you've given some style to the caricature, rather than simply exaggerating his features. Top stuff.
