foxy lady by MelissaReneePohl foxy lady by MelissaReneePohl
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.

I love it so much1 the only reason why I didn't know who it was is because I never watch live action... XD;

For the lips - I adore them. Reminds me of the 20s. I think the problem most people have is how you can't see a bit of her lip on the other side and there's no wrinkles to show that she's pulling it to one side.

:iconmelissareneepohl:
MelissaReneePohl Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2010
interesting point. I guess the reason there are no wrinkles there is because had a very plain expression in the original photo and I wanted to give her a bit of a mona lisa smile but I didn't think to add that little wrinkle that would be there if she were really smiling. I will try fixing that when I get around to it. Thanks for your comment! :)

Fantastic work! :D
I mean, personally, I don't like her (no offense to any fans), but this is very well done. I like that you poked fun at her ears, they always make me giggle x]..

The hair is simply mesmerizing, as are her eyebrows. I feel like I could touch them.
And in the hollowness of her cheeks, oh my goodness, it looks like real skin done up in makeup, it looks so great.
I would love to see you do an actual drawing of her, I'm sure it would be amazing!!

I instantly knew who it was :D and not because of the title, either (although it was a nice touch X3)

Wow...I haven't done much with vectors myself -I've only used them passively for perspective guidelines and such- but I really appreciate all the work you put into this...this was a very well deserved DD <3
