I haven't made any celebrity caricatures for a long time, and it used to be my speciality. So, here's a quick one... I think you can all recognize who's on the picture :)

Susan Boyle caricature

Thanks! Yeah, that's Susan Boyle. She's funny... and certainly got talent! Couldn't resist to make a caricature of her :)
Actually, it's one of the easiest caricatures I've done in a long time, really managed to capture her from the first attempt and it usually takes me three or four sketches to get someone's face right.

:D

He he, treba mu pod hitno novi stilist. Perika je očajna, a ni implanti nisu za pohvalu... :)))

When you drew this, was your brain in "draw a woman" mode, or "draw a man" mode? Just curious, haha.

patrick said...

I reckon you were simply in "draw Susan Boyle" mode

PERFECT!! An excellent and funny likeness!!

And in a weird way, she's sort of cute and appealing the way you drew her...

Haha, this is great, man.

You're right! :)
Perhaps I made her look just a bit too masculine :)

Minder S:
Thanks!!!

Thanks a lot, I'm happy to hear that! She's having very funny and specific expressions when she sings, and I tried to capture them, and show some of her personality and individuality through the drawing. At first, I was concerned that people might dismiss it as "ugly" or mean spirited caricature, but all the reaction here and especially on DeviantART has been really positive.

Good luck to her.
