Mazza and Deano

A couple of caricatures of former Hollywood stars, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. They are so well known and have been drawn and caricatured by countless other artists, so it's a challenge to try and avoid the cliches and produce something original. Not sure if I succeeded, but here they are...

I love them. :) I really like how you pick a color for each picture you make and keep it throughout the whole thing. I especially like Marilyn Monroe.

And DB nooo? Where are you lately! :O

In my opinion, you succeeded!
I prefer Jame Dean, I like the shadows on his face.

Liked the side by side contrast in expressions.
Makes each piece stronger.

very cool as always. How long did you work on your caricatures? Is that all just for fun or remittance work?

Muffin- Thankyou! I'm still posting on The Drawing Board, just not in the 'Caricature' section (having a little break) :)

Ben- Thanks! Yeah you don't see a whole lot of caricature in deep shadow. Thought I'd give it a go.

Lou/Gon/Michel- Thanks fellas!

Brian- I originally planned it as a trio of pictures with Elvis being the third, but didn't get around to it. I'm still itching to draw him though. He should be a challenge.

Yavuz- They each took about 60minutes each. They were just done for fun.
