Here is a new twist of my work. I created a funny caricature of a Facebook artist friend named Gerardo, from Spain. I thought I would take a not-so-used photo of him to create a more gruesome, yet funny caricature.
I began in Photoshop CS3 and I first sketched a fuzzy black rough outline of the funny image I wanted to create, changed the hues of the reference photo to get a more red-tinted look, filled in the colors on my caricature drawing and worked with the opacities, brushes and colors to slowly match my ref photo. And last, I created the background color and splats using the sponges in Painter 11. Enjoy!
