I like myself

Posted Mar 2014

Don't make my nose too big. Caricature Artists hear that all the time.

I wish people didn't say that. Because big noses are beautiful. Embrace yourself. Stand up and be proud. As I do:

I used to think that my nose was too big. I admired the people with cute little pug-noses. So I manipulated my photo to see how I'd look with a cute little nose.

Ooooh. That's ridiculous. I would look like I was in the Grinch family if I made my nose smaller. It's a good thing that I could check it out in a photo before doing anything wild like ick sir-jury.

But just wondering. What if the bottom of my face got smaller along with my nose. Here's what I came up with:

That would look okay. But I still don't think I would look better than the real me with the bigger nose (and the longer face). Not better. Just Different.

Perhaps I should stick to just making people skinny and removing zits. But just one more make-me-look-better try. This time I decided to perk myself up. I made my teeth and eyes and hair just a little brighter. I like this one:

This experiment clearly shows that my nose is not too big. It's just right for my face.

Conservative Event Entertainment

Posted Mar 2014

Here are some Samples of the black/white line-work that I will be doing at more conservative events. If I need to save time, I can just give out the black line work. But it's usually better to add the shading. I was playing around with different types of shading, sometimes a black Color Stick, sometimes a light gray marker, sometimes a dark gray marker.

I felt like the black Color Stick was good for Coloring in the large area of the hair, but it looked a little dirty on the face. I prefer the gray marker for shading on the face. Probably not a good idea to go too dark with the gray shading.

Rewriting the Past

Posted Mar 2014

All right. Okay. Yes. I'm getting started here on those Photo Manipulations. This picture was so much easier to handle than the first Sample that I made back on March 11, 2014. Because it was an old photo which was all scratchy and undetailed. So easy. It looks like this lady used to be quite slim.

YES. PHOTO MANIPULATIONS CAN BE USED FOR YOUR OLD PHOTOS AS WELL AS FOR YOUR CURRENT PHOTOS. YOU CAN PRINT THEM OUT OR YOU CAN USE THEM ONLINE.
