Caricature assignment

This week's assignment was to do caricatures. Since this is the second time I've taken the character design class, the teacher let me choose my own subjects.
I'm a big fan of BYU football, and so I thought it would be fun to try the head coach, Bronco Mendenhall. Unfortunately, there's not a ton of photo reference available of him on the web, so I'm not sure how close I came to his likeness.

















I also like the BBC series "Jeeves and Wooster" with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie. I don't think my likeness of Bertie Wooster is all that great, but I'm pretty happy with Jeeves. Also, I think I'm in love with Painter's "Dry Ink" brush.
















I'm also working on Miranda Otto (I also like the Lord of the Rings movies), but I'm probably not going to finish her until just before the assignment is due.

  1. Looks like Bronco to me. Always impressive stuff, Sam... you should compile a book of your work... I'd buy it.
