More progress with my Tom Hanks Caricature!



Not finished yet, but getting there . . . just a bit more to go, some more textures, and maybe a little more work on the hair and some of the edges. Currently I'm working on a large two page spread for Golf magazine. Six people and a lot of detail, will post soon.

Looking great. If you could talk about the detailing for us, when you get to it, I'm sure it would be widely appreciated. :]

This is so good - I love the contrast you get between the sharp detail on the features and the loose background. Can I ask how big a canvas you work on, in pixels? I'm wondering if I should step up in size to achieve that kind of contrast.

Whoa, thanks guys a bit of a boost to my ego! :) Just kidding . . . but seriously thanks, I'm encouraged!

MARK, you said you'd like me to talk about detailing when I get there. Do you mean with my Tom Hanks or my GOLF job?

NEIL, I'm not really sure size has much to do with it, unless of course you're painting really small. This Tom Hanks is about 9"X12" at the most, at 300dpi. When I started this painting, I started with the whole background as a fleshy color and painted him right out of that.

Jason,
I think this is the first time I've seen your work and I am so amazed!
I'm a designer in Florida and Caricature artist on the side.
Looking at this blog I am inspired
to flip those roles. Your work is
so fun and fresh. Cool thing too is
I have a daughter named Ava!
Artists must think a like...
Keep it going.

Amazing work Jason! This one is the most painterly one in awhile and it looks great!
You've inspired me to try digital painting (again).
Thanks working like a mad man and blogging it.

Brilliant, Jason.

Gotta say I love the unfinished look. Really draws attention to the finished detail of the face.

I noticed the creases on the neck. Details like that really support a natural looking believable portrait. Your ability to tweak the proportions of the skull remains subtle; the overall painting keeps technique subordinate and allows the viewer to focus on that which is most important.

Thank you much! Chris, I agree, I dig the unfinished look as well . . . I'm planning on keeping it this way all the way to the final . . . just a little more to do before I'll call it finished.
Bill, your comments make me sound too good . . . thank you for your encouragement!

Looks really great, Jason. I admire how you can keep it loose and still render so well in photoshop.
You make me want to try some attempts in photoshop myself, although I really have to figure it out- I've never done it before...

Hey Jason. Just how you go about it/think about detail and texture in general would be fine by me.
