Tom Waits Final

I think I'm finished. I sharpened up some details, including the jacket, which I really wasn't happy with.

Tom Waits Continued

I tightened up the rendering here and there and added some textures. I think the jacket could still use some work.

Tom Waits Sketch

Just messing around in Photoshop. Usually I don't sketch directly in the program. I usually sketch on paper, scan in my sketches and paint over them. Not this time though. This took about 90 minutes.

Captain Kirk

I started out trying to turn this into a caricature of a young Shatner, but as things went on I realized the more I distorted his features, the less it looked like him. I think I'd have an easier time with an older, lumpier Shatner, which I might do sometime in the future.

Morgan Freeman

Here's my latest painting, in my humble opinion, one of our greatest American actors, Morgan Freeman. This one had a strange process to it, that went like this: 1. Draw a colored pencil sketch of Morgan Freeman. 2. Scan sketch in and paint over it. 3. Decide the aforementioned sketch really didn't look much like Morgan Freeman at all then paint over the whole thing until it no longer resembled the original sketch, but ultimately looked a lot more like the actor.
