I bet this man doesn't go a day without someone sniggering behind his back as they remember Blackadder Goes Forth...
Anyway, another very rough sketch for the Schoolism course, our Chancellor is one of the subjects for the current assignment and of course it's his big day in the spotlight today (was that luck or judgement Jason? :) ).

Haven't finished this yet, but now I look at it I quite like the looseness of the hair and body. Maybe I'll leave it as is. I really enjoyed painting this but I feel like I'm way too conservative with exaggeration - need to learn to go much further, break away from the photo reference and stretch myself (and my subjects I guess!).

My current favourite TV show is The Big Bang Theory, I just love the characters and the fact that I get a lot of the geek and science references makes it even more brilliant. Of course the best character by far is Sheldon. Total genius. EDIT: Here's a newer version of Sheldon I did a while ago for all you Big Bang fans! You can get a t-shirt of this design here!

Well as of today I am officially unemployed, and my efforts will now be focused on making that self-employed, and hopefully gift caricatures will be a step towards that.
As a practice run, I've done one for my Dad who is a big golfer and clay-pigeon shooter. You'll have to trust me when I say I nailed the likeness, creating the additional elements is still quite new and needs more work though.
