One thing missing in my portfolio (for years now) is likenesses. I have had a few portfolio reviews from character design recruiters and have had a few artists comment on this aspect to me in the past, and it had been something i always intended on getting around to do. Recently i got a new moleskine sketchbook (the only souvenir i took from my short stint as a retail clerk at Dick Blicks art store) and decided to dedicate it to likenesses of Politicians and Celebrities. These are the first six from that sketchbook.
The paper weight is pretty heavy in this sketch book. I want to try my hands at adding some color to the sketches with some water color, marker and caran d'ache. most of this set, though, were colored in photoshop.
