Thinking outside of the box...
ironically his head came out as a box, get it, ha ha .. ha..... ha. Anyways, if you can't tell, this is actor Tommy Lee Jones, the subject for the latest caricature jam over at drawingboard.org. Like i said, i was really trying to think out of the box on this one, i'm very interested in the use of simplification for caricatrues, and while this is not nearly as far as i took it in my head, i like where i went with this one. also bit different from my usual caricatures of actors, as i usually portray them in one of their films as a certain character.
i feel that i've been improving in overall rendering and composition of my caricatures, but i just feel that it's all been done before. I feel there is no reason to just use the same technique that everyone else out there is using. i want to come up with a way of looking at someone, and translating that to paper that is original, which is something that is not an easy task. i can only hope that this is a step in that direction.
