A quick iPad caricature of Benedict Cumberbatch of the latest Star Trek movie and Sherlock Holmes fame on BBC. Just playing around with some different brushes in Art Studio….

iPad Caricatures: James Thomas

I’m not sure if it’s the upgrade to iOS7 or not, but for some reason this past week, ArtStudio on my iPad has been acting weird. Even basic tools like the Paint bucket have been working erratically. So, what do you do when the “normal” way you work doesn’t work anymore? Change the way you work! That’s what I had to do midway through a live digital caricaturing event I was performing at last week. I’ll see if I can find some of those pix and share them here. I went for a “rougher”, more natural tools looking style, instead of really smooth, slick brushes. I also colored on a lower layer, with a big brush rather than the aforementioned paint bucket, leaving some rim lighting within the lines. This is a drawing I did after the gig, of fellow caricaturist James Thomas, as I continued to play around in this new style. It kind of has a more illustrative quality, so I may keep doing stuff his way.

Beast Boy!

Here’s my iPad version of Beast Boy from Teen Titans Go! I drew it in the great Art Studio app, just to take a break from my iPad caricaturing I’ve been doing so much of lately. Hope you like it!

A new “Me”.

Drawing yourself is a real chore.  You always want to make yourself thinner, younger, whatever… but sometimes in my biz it’s necessary. Here’s my latest version of my mug for some upcoming appearances / lectures I’m going to be doing.

Tempted

Standard

I’ve always harbored a secret desire to just be a painter. So, occasionally I will indulge myself and paint something.
I love Picasso, cubism, Covarrubbias, Braque, lots of abstract stuff, so that’s what I like to paint. Here’s a recent one I did.  I am doing a series of Biblical paintings, and this is the first. I call it “Tempted”. It’s of Adam and Eve in the Garden, kissing. Except that Eve is looking off at the Forbidden Fruit.
