Billy Idol

Wow! It has been a while since something new came out of me, hasn’t it? Well, here it is, my latest caricature. Billy Idol is currently the next challenge in a facebook caricature group (Caricaturama Showdown 3000!) and I couldn’t pass it up. One reason is because Billy Idol has a nice bit of character and is a fairly unique individual, because I like his music and because he would fit nicely in my “Monsters of Rock” series.

I have also decided that my Caricature series will no longer be limited to 3 subjects. Mainly because I have 3 already for my “Monsters of Rock” series (although all three have not been completed =0P ) and yet Billy Idol still belongs. So, it could be interesting to see what happens without the self imposed limitation!?

The caricature was created in MyPaint using a Wacom Intuos 5 graphic tablet and branded in Photoshop.

Bono

This caricature of Bono from U2 is one of three for a caricature series entitled “Monsters of Rock”. I made the sketch for this caricature about mid March and just now got around to actually painting it. The caricature itself was painted in MyPaint and the background, shadows, signature and branding was done in Photoshop.
