one of our assignments was to do a piece related to the occupy movements, in the style of a specific artist. I ignored the assignment a little bit and used it as an excuse to draw caricatures of republican pundits and nominees. style inspired by john cuneo.
I started off with this painting of glenn beck, and I was happy with the likeness, but it was too flat and I knew I could push it further.
in this painting I pushed it way more, but along the way I got carried away with the drawing and the colors and lost the likeness.
this painting ended up being my final for glenn. I still lost some of the likeness but overall I was the happiest with this one.
after taking on glenn, I moved onto michele bachman, who I had drawn a little bit earlier in the semester for a different assignment. I had a harder time pushing her face. I usually have more trouble caricaturing women because I have a harder time keeping myself from going on autopilot and just drawing a pretty portrait.
next up: rush limbaugh. I don't think I have to worry about making him too pretty.
