View Full Version : Famously Infamous

Well this is my first in the series (yep there will be more of these coming). I have always admired caricaturists and always have struggled to paint one...well, this time I just took a plunge.
Painted with Ink on 11 x 14 whiteboard (again Charles' technique)...this is cropped version since my scanner is quite small; however, there is just more of the background missing, so no big deal.

Quite a change in styles for you but I like this. It's pretty cool and very well done.

Oh I wish I could do this. I always admire people who can change things to this extent yet still capture someone. Excellent and I love the style!

Oh, by the way Martin, have a look through Jason Sealer's website. Jason is Larry's son. Larry is a moderator on the Animal and Wildlife forum here on WetCanvas and Jason is as good a caricaturist as I've ever seen.

This is really cool. However, is it a famous person and if it is, who?

Hmmm... I'm going to go out on a limb here and say, based on the beard, cigar, and bearing, that this is a young Fidel Castro.
