Bruce Willis Caricature by jonmoss77 Bruce Willis Caricature by jonmoss77
For my Bruce Willis caricature I wanted to work from photo reference which portrayed him as the action man we've come to know him as. So what better than a screen shot straight from Die Hard 4. I loved the lighting in this scene and enjoyed painting it. My process for this was to do a detailed black and white value painting (I spent the majority of the overall time working on this stage). Next I painted a layer in colorize mode blocking in with my split compilation palette before returning to normal mode and detailing the piece in a direct painting style. After a bit of horizontal flipping and a few structural changes I was now happy he no longer looked like a distorted potato and pleased with the finished result.

This is awesome, i just feel that with all the detail around the eyes and top half of the head, the whole top lip and bottom lip/chin looks relatively neglected. I have to say though, the eyes are uncanny and the pic as a whole is still amazing. Good job.

Pretty good; shame you've made a famous American hard-man look quite literally like a dick! - Seriously look at the shape, colouring, tone, and characteristic shiny bald dome! LOL

ah hah...
i had the same problem...
your much better than me, but i overcame that problem by just trying 1-2 hour paints and stop and do another one, til i get really fast at the techniques im used to and im satisfied with how far i got.

brush settings like color change on pen pressure works alot, i found myself just changing between a small handfull of colors after it.

you should try paint black and white then color it after, it's much faster and better to get the best grey tones. but you dont seem to have a problem with that, your work is really impressive mate.
