So I was going to start doing caricatures of people again, and I was going to start it off with Taylor Swift, and while trying to figure out how her facial features looked, this sketchy portrait started unveiling itself, so I decided to post it, I'll possibly post the caricature if it comes out half decent to, and I think I just might paint this but we'll see. I wanted to draw Taylor Swift in the first place cause she is so damn beautiful, and humble.

This is a digital painting I did of my dog Cujo, and I entered it in sketchaholics contest, where we had to draw something under the topic, 'Family Dog' this took me quite a while to do kinda lost track of the time since I started last night and finished today, and I did it on Alias Sketchbook pro.

So I just started working on a few expressions from the character I created from my last post, I did a few quick and simple expressions; happy, mad, and a cute puppy dog face. I kinda like how I tried getting a bit of the body and shoulders into showing the expression, even though the actually facial expressions aren't pushed to far, but I feel like this characters face can only be pushed so far before it starts looking weird? Let me know what you think.
So I've been doing a lot of caricatures lately but I've been missing out on actual caracter design, in possing and expressions, so I decided to design a caracter first off, which I went with a baby in diapers, and I kinda like this design, so I'm just posting the design, and I'm going to get started on some expressions, and poses soon, and if I like the result of them I'll post them up. I just changed the head of this character and made it look a lot better, in my opinion. Just noticed a while after posting this that it very much a more detailed better looking version of the kid character I used for my walk animation.

The other day I started thinking of all the shows I grew up with and without a doubt one of the funniest shows I grew up watching was Married With Children, I tried doing a caricature of Al a while back but wasn't pleased with the results, so I tried something again, with Al in his famous pose, with one hand down his pants haha. and Peggy by his side yapping away. I used a piece of a picture of the couch in this drawing as a background for the flower detail on the couch, but drew the couch myself.

I was watching Monty Python the other day, and 3 days later after I stopped laughing I started working on John Cleese my favourite character of them all, one of my favourite sketches from his has to be The Ministry of Silly Walks, where he walks very very silly.

I drew this a while ago, after watching a bit of Nacho Libre with Jack Black, and saw this one expression he did which was quite hillarious, but kinda forgot exactly how it looked the next day when drawing him, but I still kinda liked the caricaturization I did of him here.
This is a friends uncle, his mother wanted me to do a cartoon, of him carying a satellite dish on his back this is a birthday gift for him, I decided to add other stuff like the remote in his mouth and the receiver in his other hand and a wire sort of wrapping around him, gave him a cap of his favourite soccer team, added some colour, and now here we are.

It was a few days ago that I saw the film Kick Ass, and the title itself describes how awesome it was, right away I knew I was going to do a digital painting of the character 'Kick Ass', and it has been a while since I've taken the time to do an actual digital painting, the last big one was the Joker I did about 2 years ago, I'm not counting the JFK one cause I didnt spend much time on it. Anyways this painting took me about 3-4 hours to complete, I did it on Alias Sketchbook Pro, because I'm photoshop handicap, and I am quite pleased with the results.
