Harrison Ford

Following on from his latest movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (which I saw but alas, didn't enjoy) here's a caricature of Harrison Ford.

A pretty hard guy to caricature. The trick I found was to make sure the photo reference really looked like Harrison Ford. A lot of his photos, he just doesn't look himself!

Here's another one of Harrison, this time a quick sketch from the movie, 'The Widowmaker'.

These are BOTH very good, I think the top drawing is more instantly recognizable! He sure is taking on that ole- grandpa look!
Great Sketches!

Great work Chris!

I think the problem is that although Harrison's a handsome guy, he hasn't really got any features that paticularly stand out.

Also don't shoot me, but I'm getting a Walter Matthau vibe off the first one for some reason.

Great sketches Chris. Even though the first has a better likeness, I prefer the second profile sketch, because there is still a likeness, and it's his hardest angle to capture.

Hey everyone!

Thanks so much for the encouraging comments. Coming back to this after almost a month, I can't say I'm happy with either of these. Oh well...

Funny you should mention it being hard to caricature Ford - have you ever seen or heard anyone do an impression of him? Neither have I!

Wait - well, unless you're not counting River Phoenix playing the young Indy in The Last Crusade. But I'm not counting that.
