Louis by jadecilcleton Louis by jadecilcleton
I always looked for a good reason to do a caricature of Louis Armstrong. An online contest really encourage me to run into this. I love almost all Louis Armstrong songs and, like a infinite number of artists around the world, I like to listen his music while I work, to inspire and mood up myself. His sympathetic voice and sweet way of sing seems to harmonize our ideas and lead us to nice accomplishments.

Enjoying the process of painting this caricature, I lost for a few hours the contest delivery date because of timezone issues (lol). I really would like to delivery this piece in time, to me was a great pity... but after a good sleep night, I realized I didn't have to be upset with this stupid mistake. I was really liking to do the painting, to run into some details... and I really liked the distortion and the composition. I was really optimistic, I should make use of this feeling, even a little disappointed now.

Technically I've created some brushes to paint the skin texture, hair and the little scratches that compound the slightly worn metal look.

This is the result of almost five days of work.

Haha! What a great piece. At first my mind was telling me something else was there, but then I shook my head, looked again and saw it in all it's glory. Fun caricature, and totally off the norm'!

hahaha! ficou muito engraçado!
Do estilo caricatura, é o primeiro que vejo desse jeito, chegando a ponto de "dividir" o rosto, para enfatizar ainda mais o traço cômico da pessoa retratada. rs!!
Afinal, a maioria dos desenhistas de caricatura fazem sempre o rosto inteiro, sem transgredir esse padrão por uma finalidade criativa.
Esse seu ficou realmente bem legal! parabéns! :lol:
