Digital painting/caricature of Robert Downey, Jr. I may have to pull this one back out in the future. Lot more stuff I’d like to do with it. But here it is for now…
This week it was announced that Ashton Kutcher will replace Charlie Sheen on the CBS television show “Two And A Half Men.” I have to admit that I’ve never seen an entire episode of “2.5 Men” but I loved “That 70s Show” and thought Mr. Kutcher to be a mighty fine comic actor. So to congratulate him in his new role and wish him luck I have rendered him in caricature.
I had too many varied caricature sketches of Cowboy Mouth’s Fred LeBlanc not to do another finished caricature. I think this one is totally different in style from the first one. I wanted to keep the painting style loose and rough to match the extreme exaggeration of the caricature.
It’s Jazz Fest in New Orleans and what better way to recognize it than with a caricature of a guy from my favorite New Orleans’ band Cowboy Mouth, Mr. Fred LeBlanc. I did several sketches of Fred in preparation for this caricature so I may eventually post another caricature in a totally different style. In the meantime you can enjoy this one and celebrate the fact that it’s great to be alive! Are you with me??
This caricature was kind of an exercise in technique. After completing it I realized that this caricature could have been even more effective if I hadn’t included a nose or mouth. Maybe next time.
