Dunno where to put this kinda thing, so into the hellfire it goes!

I'm in training to become a caricature artist like my mom, and I'm looking for some patsies test subjects for caricature practice. Here's a couple (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v475/ValocDarkmyre/Art%20Stuff/Caricature%20Practice/Freestyle001.jpg) of samples (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v475/ValocDarkmyre/Art%20Stuff/Caricature%20Practice/Freestyle002.jpg) of stuff I've done. I've got a ways to go, but that's why I wanna get some practice in.

Anyway, what this means for you guys is free art. Here are the guidelines.


You have to be willing to provide a photograph of yourself for reference (via the thread or PM) and for the finished pic to be displayed here, obviously.
I'm willing to draw you as almost anything (football players, princesses, animals, soldiers with asymmetrical outfits and swords bigger than they are, etc.), just as long as it's nothing pornographic.
I've got five slots available for pics at any given time, and they can each be one of the following: A face pic, a face and body pic, or (in the case of two people consenting to be drawn together) a couples pic. All can be in either black and white or color.


If anyone's game, let me know! I'm looking forward to drawing some of you guys.

Currently in progress:

I'll add you to the list. Any particular theme you want for your caricature?

I dunno, TTers are always good with hilarious suggestions. Whatever they think is funniest.

Ooh, this sounds fun!

I think this picture (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v479/aett/brian-cat-ds.jpg) would be cute, but the faces may not be at the right angle for this sort of picture. In that case, let's just go with this one (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v479/aett/brian_catherine03.jpg).

Heather's always wanted to do a caricature thing so let me go dig up a photo.

Will this one work?

I can get your face well from that one, but it'd help greatly if you have a pic of Heather from a front or angled view.

Nice thread.

And it'd be a shame not to have Rosencrantz dressed up like his avatar. I mean, how else would we know it's him?

Can you include the cat?

Thanks for the references so far, guys! These will be great practice. I'll get these done in as timely a fashion as I can.

Sure thing. ;)

This sounds suspiciously familiar... (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/2/22/)

But actually, this sounds like fun! Here's a picture of me. (http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v142/180/1/1201163/n1201163_37115731_8008.jpg)

I'm generally proud of the fact that there is essentially no photographic evidence that I actually exist to be found on the internet, but seeing how horrifying my true form is to behold, it'd probably be really great caricature fodder. So tada, rare (and horribly sunburnt) exception (http://picasaweb.google.com/sushux/WeddingWeekend#5353896378767027762).

Thanks for the references so far. I'll get started on these first few requests ASAP, so slots are closed until after the first five*. Please be patient until then.

*I'll add you after the initial run, Zodar.

Aw, just too late. My purple pirate pic from DragonCon might be just the thing. Well, I'll check in later.

Okay, got the first of these done! I went with ol' DemoWeasel's suggestion to swap their faces.....or rather, their heads. Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed drawing, inking, and watercoloring it. =D

You know, you should sign your paintings with "MM 20XX".

That looks nothing like me! I have the lower body of a cat, not a dog! You fool!

Also that is pretty great.

So this thread's been dead long enough. Sorry about the procrastination there, but I'm getting things back underway now that I've got some more free time. ^^;

Wise from your gwave!

Dunno if you and Catherine are Cave Story fans, but here's what I came up with for the two of ya. If you'll tell me what color your eyes are, I plan to watercolor this, too. Hope you like it. ;)

Rosencrantz
04-17-2010, 12:10 PM
Haha thanks! I forgot about this, actually! My eyes are brown and Cat's are hazel. I'm looking forward to seeing all the other caricatures as well!

Sorry guys, but the other caricature requests are cancelled until further notice due to the aCer Lappy suddenly deciding to crap out with some unknown virus and go into System Repair mode yesterday afternoon. We didn't backup our files either, so we can't restore things that way, and I can't post 'em unless I can upload 'em.

Goddammit, this sucks SO much. If it wasn't for the Wii's crappy Opera browser, I couldn't even type this. >_<

Not quite the same as on paper, but I'm doing these again! It's nice to use Art Academy for something besides horrors. ^^;

First up is Zodar. Hope you like it. ;)

Yep. All I need is a photo for reference, and if you want to be drawn as something in particular.
