Mike Marino

Submitted this caricature to Jason Seiler for his podcast interview of Mike Marino. Truly an honor that it even got shown. Just amazes me that we live in the age of the internet and connections like this can be made. These two guys are at the top of their respective fields.

If you don’t know Mike Marino, he is a modern day Carpeaux with the attitude of Bernini. You can tell he is a student of art, has/does put in a lot of hard work, and is a humble guy about it all. Really inspiring stuff.

When I was working on this, Ashley (my wife) asked, “Who is that guy?” with big doe eyes. I was forced to say “He’s a nobody. A real schmuck and dirtball.” but she knew better. Needed to add some gore so she would stop checking him out over my shoulder. I could probably take him in arm wrestling. Maybe not. The man does sculpture so he’s probably got some good grip.

Here is the podcast where my work was shown. I feel like a 12 year old boy that Jason Seiler had some input on it. It’s at 1:12.

It’s been 7 months since my last post. Just a quick caricature to see how the skills are holding up.

Little Doggie

Her doggie passed away recently. Seemed like a good picture to do something with after not drawing anything the past two months. Rest in peace little pup.

She is Disappoint

I found this girls expression darn near impossible to do from the front view so I turned it to 3/4 view. Trying to get away from making everything too dark as well.

Ember

Instagram girl. She asked for a drawing on reddit then posted the picture on her instagram saying it was done by a fan. Ugh. Lesson to all you kids out there. If someone does something nice for you, the proper response is to also be nice. Maybe link to the artist that did the artwork. Maybe give some credit rather than turn them into a “fan”.

Not a fan.

More of the same. Just some practice. This one could use some more finishing but no need for that.

Caricature Painting

Used Sketchbook Pro for this one. Much different from Photoshop with how the brushes work. My trial version of Photoshop CS6 expired with all it’s painterly brushes. Still experimenting.

It’s some random internet person.
