Slash

Posted 21 hours ago

Much fun. I drew this based on a photo of Slash (from the band Guns and Roses) I found online. Even though I've been so enamoured with the Digital Caricatures lately, I worked directly on paper this time. Getting back to basics.

I call this my Portrait-Style Caricature. Still Exaggerated, but it's based on face with features, instead of just Shapes and Feeling. Which is what I would have done if I was doing what I call an Exaggerated Caricature. All good, but I have to know which Style I'm doing ~ it's much more comfortable if I know whether I'm going for 'My' Portrait Style Caricature Or My Exaggerated Caricature Or a Regular Straight Portrait.

Like a person who knows how to cook can put Carrots into a Cake. But she has to know whether she's aiming to make Cake Or Salad when she's working. So please do be clear when you contact me at optidust@gmail.com to order your Commissioned Artwork. Artwork can't be confined, artwork can't exist before it is Created, but I do want know what direction you prefer.

I'm available for Commissions. I can draw Caricatures on Paper from your photos, and then mail them to you through the Post Office. OR if you prefer, I can draw them on the IPad and then just email them to you. Prices are currently Slashed low because I want to make things a little easier, a little nicer for my precious Clients during this Corona Virus situation.

click on the link to see how the Artwork developed. This is obviously too long for Party Style. I'm glad I got it out of my system, so I will be ready to handle Prties Remotely when they come in:

3 Things I Learned

Posted 1 day ago

This time I tried to make a Caricature in my Studio as though I was at a Gig. So I would be ready to handle any Remote Gigs that I'm hoping to get. I was forcing myself to make a Portrait-Styled Caricature because that's what I've been working on lately.

As always, good thing I try stuff on my own before I take a job with it. At least 3 major things I learned from doing this.

  1. Stick to Fake Portrait if that's the Style you've decided to do.
  2. Just follow the plan if you want to handle things Party Style.
  3. an ummmm...... I forgot the 3rd thing while I was writing the first two.
