This is my first attempt at doing a caricature, a "light" caricature to be more specific. It didn't as well as I hoped it would, considering it doesn't look much like the intended celebrity, but I thought I'd post it anyway. I recommend checking out the full view as the image is fairly detailed.
Created in Adobe Illustrator CS4
UPDATE: OMG, a DD, I can't believe it! Thanks so much to brgtt for featuring it!
And thanks for everyone's support by telling me it's obvious who it's supposed to be. I feel a lot more happy with the way it turned out now.
A bit about my technique: I did not use mesh at all in this piece. Instead I used layers and layers of simple translucent gradients. I also used lots of custom brushes for the hair, and symbols for the freckles and some other details.
