Out of my Deppth




A caricature of movie star Johnny Depp. Not an easy guy to draw but I'm pretty happy with the results.

Here's a link to the first attempt.

Unbelievable ... I'm holding my own attempts at caracature up to yours and that sets the bar quite high. And I'll post as time allows.

I have never seen anyone catch a whole facial likeness of Johnny as you have here. Are you up to critique? it's the jawbones that don't quite work... to me they don't seem a part of the face...at first I thought they were the collar of his shirt! What media do you use? Do you scan it in?

Fabulous work, really. Do you have others we might see?

Thanks all!

Stingo- I'm always open to criticism. It's a great way to improve one's work..

I see what you're saying. maybe it's a bit too stylised. Connecting the jawline to the chin might integrate it better. Hmmm...might have a little play with it later.



Mediawise, I used graphite pencil, scanned and colourized in Photoshop.

Thanks carol!

It's funny the more I look at this caricature, the less it looks like him. I guess it's hard for a creator to be content with his own work sometimes.
