Will Smith Finished & His Response

Hey everybody, here's Will Smith finished. A while ago actor/singer Tyrese Gibson (Transformers) kindly tweeted my work and followed me on Twitter. Tyrese is good friends with Will and when I finished this, I asked Tyrese to send him it. Tyrese not only sent it to Will, but he tweeted the picture to his 1.3 million followers! Then this morning I got a message from Tyrese saying Will's response was: It's hilarious! Great detail too.
So I am really pleased that Will has seen it and very grateful to Tyrese to sending him it:)

Here's some detail in the face, I'm tyring to get some interesting texture aswell as realism into my pictures.

Finally, some progress shots of how I got there.  Also my Cher Lloyd picture has now been shown to Cher, she loved it! Thanks guys!

Will Smith Sketch

I really want to improve my sketching ability as a lot of my pictures look a lot different once they are painted, and they make the sketches look awful. A strong sketch is very important for a strong painting so I am trying to improve my sketches. Here's one of my favourite actor, Will Smith. There are things that need tweaking with the sketch but I feel it is stronger than my previous sketches, pre-painting. Thanks guys:)

Jason Derulo

Hey everyone, quick post here with Jason Derulo caricature. It was my intention to keep this simple and there's not much detail, it's a bit more cartoony. I was very fortunate that singer Lawrence Dotson kindly showed Jason Derulo this picture for me and Jason liked it:) I also finished the picture that I've been working on for a while and will post it soon:)
