I spent an inordinate amount of time yesterday doing that Cintiq review, so today’s post is going to be an easy one. Here’s a short list of links to the blogs of some terrific caricature artists:
Jan Op de Beeck– Jan is a Belgian illustrator and one of the most highly respected caricaturists in the world. His blog is fairly new, just having started in August, and I hope we’ll see plenty of posts of his work there. Check out his video post where he’s adding gray tones to a live caricature.
Joe Bluhm– If you frequent caricature related blogs at all you are probably familiar with Joe, an immensely talented caricaturist and animator now in the NYC area. His video tutorials on digital painting are fantastic.
Paul Moyse– UK based caricaturist and illustrator. He’s doing some excellent painted caricature illustrations in both digital and traditional acrylics, and the most impressive thing about them is you can’t tell which is which. So many digital artists have “I did this on a computer” stamped all over their work. Not so Paul. Also, the man can DRAW.
Brooke Howell– She’ll probably be appalled I put her with this company, but she’s just modest. There are few caricaturists out there that can take their skills off the page and into three dimensions, and Brooke is one of the best at it. Her caricature sculptures are excellent.
Chris Wahl– Australian illustrator and comic book artist. Chris moves effortlessly between comic book style illustration, digital painting, realistic drawing and wildly exaggerated caricatures. He really knows his computer graphics programs as well.
Vin Altamore– Fellow NCN member who is a modern master of the soft crosshatch drawing technique. His caricature sketches blend this technique with great drawing skills for some amazing likenesses and caricatures.
There is such a wealth of talent on the internet that it boggles the mind. I could easily fill my blogroll with six feet of links, but by necessity (and sanity) have limited my links there to either personal or professional aquaintances and peers. My apologies to those who have in the past e-mailed me with a request for a link exchange that I have not reciprocated on.
