Big Green Monster

Well, here we are at number 50!!
It was about three months ago now that I started on this little exercise of trying to knock out a caricature a day- mainly during my lunch break. It hasn't quite been that productive(some weeks better than others), what with work demands, changing jobs and family life; but it has been a fun little challenge that has pushed me, kept me on my toes so to speak, and I think helped me develop or refine myself a little further as an artist.
I never actually set myself a goal, and while 50 is a good one, I think I'll keep going just with probably not as much vigour; I have a few other things that I would like to focus, as well as steering this blog back to something of an animation focus.
The only problem with that however, is that animation work is generally in production so long that it can be a year or more before a production is released and showing anything beforehand risks breaking a non-disclosure agreement. That was partly why I started these caricatures in the first place. But, I have a couple of personal animation projects that I would like to forge ahead with, and this may be the forum to start showing some of that. Stay tuned (or tooned).
For those who have been regular visitors, thanks for dropping by, and perhaps leave your thoughts, comments or suggestions.

Too easy, despite the radical variations in hairstyle

Sci-Fi Guru

I couldn't do this one and not do a full-body pic. The Emperor might've been more appropriate, but this was still no less fun

Mr Handsome

A bit on the tame side, me thinks...

Me as a teenager

I spotted a great meme on Monday at Drawn.
After seeing Amy's crack at it, and Ward's too, I thought I'd offer up my own take.
A bit of a trip down nostalgia lane. Oh dear!

Last Mohican

Technically, he was a ring-in...
I liked this movie until someone killed it by repeatedly playing the soundtrack at work years ago.
