BARACK OBAMA

Thought I'd give Obama another try......seeing as he's in the news and all.

Hi Ken,
very nice.
I like particularly the eyes.
And this expression : this chin that means his looking to the future...

Hi again, 4th time I come today...
this post (sketch and colored version of Obama) is very interesting, and shows and explains many things about how difficult can be a portrait or a caricature, well done or not.
The differences between your sketch and your colouring are very thin, but make all the difference.
Very good job (and analyse)

Thanks for the comments folks! Well spotted Jean-Marc! I did make some subtle changes to the original sketch to make it more of a caricature in my own eyes. I suppose everyone's perception of what makes a caricature is very different. It's funny because the caricatures I enjoy looking at the most are the ones with the most extreme exaggerations but a lot of my own caricatures have very sublte exaggerations in comparison.
