'This is not a pipe'...or a swan
Two entries to CS3000, one done before and one after my previously posted Lou Ferrigno piece. Both of these are anthropomorphic concepts (i.e. taking something, in this case a swan and a smoking pipe, and humanising it). The first is my latest, Natalie Portman from the movie 'Black Swan'. Had a lot of fun with this concept and it turned out alright. Also below once again are a few stages from it's creation. Did my best to wrangle Portman's form into the swan silhouette, the head could have been more swan-like, but you get the idea.
Next is my submission for the Norman Rockwell caricature jam. Many people were drawing Norman smoking his trademark pipe, so I turned the tables. This time the pipe is smoking him!
