I do have a few more recent art posts to get through, but I haven’t done much in the last month—partly because I’ve been focusing on developing film projects, a consequence of which being that my drawing activity has gone into one of its lulls.
Like the Chris Chibnall caricature, this also is for a possible limited animation idea… unlike the Chibnall, I don’t think I quite pulled it off, so we’ll file this under “Nice First Try, But TRY AGAIN”…
To those who don’t know, Chris Chibnall is the most recent showrunner for Doctor Who. This fact may not be accurate for much longer. It’s fair to say that he’s been a little controversial; some might say (very poor), but I couldn’t possibly comment.
Anyhow, this drawing was done last December and was for a vaguely Gilliamesque animation project, hence it was done in pieces. The project’s been on hold, BTW, but maybe we’ll have a finished video soon. It’s only a silly bit of fun, though.
So what we have here are the original inks/pencils, sans arms, followed by the full figure in colour—and finally, a detail of the head with the addition of more hair. You see, Chris used his immense fortune to purchase lovely, sparkly new hair piece/weave/plugs that fools approximately nobody…
In the Gilliam vein, I obviously wanted to make him into a real grotesque—maybe slightly to the detriment of his likeness, as he’s fairly bland-looking, really. Still, I think it achieved what I wanted quite well.
Political again! But surely not very controversial?!
Okay, it’s been a little while, but continuing the Who caricature theme… this one wasn’t the easiest. Peter’s quite ordinary and lacking in majorly distinctive features that you can play broadly. I think I did okay!
Well, here’s a third effort in my Dockeroo pic series. In some ways I felt this one missed the mark a bit in a “worthy fail” kinda way. Dunno. What do you think?
I’ve been encouraged to try more DW caricatures, so here’s Pertwee. More soon, mebbe!
I’ve been thinking about experimenting with caricature styles, so, for a quickie (took about an hour, I guess), I had a go at Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who. For a speed piece and a style I don’t play with much, it came out okay, I think. May try some other subjects soon.
