Tyra Banks caricature


another caricature for the magazine, this time I tried to do a full body caricature, as the late Ismael Roldan (RIP) once told me, that I had to do more caricatures painting the whole body, but the size of the pictures for this particular mag is very small so I only paint the head, I really don't know if they will publish it like that or if they will just do the head and shoulders.

Ben Stiller Caricature


I struggled with the likeness on this one, I only had a couple of hours to work on it for the magazine, ThinkWeston, he seems easy to caricature but somehow when you tweak the features a bit he looks like another actor, I can't remember his name now, so this one sucks, but I like the colors and the texture on it though.

Bill Gates Caricature

Bill Gates caricature, I tried to push the exaggeration a little trying to preserve likeness, I also kept a limited color range, I am going to try to do this as much as I can..

John Lennon Caricature

This is the third caricature for the ThinkWeston magazine's horoscope page for October, John Lennon, a Libra too, (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980), is being in the media once again in a big way thanks to the video game "Rock band" in this caricature I tried a new pop-art-like style, although I never liked that style I really like the results, so I might be doing more in this style.

Barack Obama Sketch


Here's the quick sketch I did for the Michele| Barack Caricature I'm working on

Michelle Obama and Dr House



No, no relationship whatsoever, these are just the last caricatures I'm working on now, I am trying to refine and define my style and to use more and more all the capabilities Photoshop bring to accomplish our art, I have been playing with layers and layer modes as well as some new brushes that I have created as well as playing with levels, noise etc, My goal is to render paintings that have depth, kind of like 3d... you will say well, why don't you learn 3d programs!, well I have tried especially with Zbrush, but it takes too long to learn and to create a painting, the results are not the same, it's more like sculpture and I love painting.. so anyways I hop you enjoy these two works in progress

My Name Is Earl Group Caricature


It is hard to try to finish a painting when you don't have a deadline, so I have been working on this caricature for over 3 mos already but I wanted to post what I have done so far, I work on it every once in a while, so I'll finish one day, hopefully before they cancel the show, although I think it'll be on air for a long time, I love it!
