Caricature: Rik Mayall -WIP- by Elusive-Angel Caricature: Rik Mayall -WIP- by Elusive-Angel
Twenty-something, pre-enigmatic Rik.

I've just started painting this on canvas today... it looks terrible but it's still early days. If it turns out as good as the original or better, then I'll upload the finished piece including a photographic walkthrough.

Derren Brown's artwork [link] is a huge influence. He's still expecting one from me after meeting him last year and mentioning the fact. He'll get it emailed (or Twittered) to him soon enough, but I'll still never be as good as him. xD

It's been two years since the Bill Bailey one was posted...not heard back. He's a busy man, I guess!

And as for Rik, well, I'm keeping this. My walls need filling and lightening up big time!

The eyeshine in the centre of his pupil is really...well eye catching! Love the texturing you've got in his hair and jacket.

ooh lovely :)
The soft style and the caricature itself are gorgeous. It's a obvious caricature without being overly garish, which is a skill. nice work.

Thanks, I'm glad it came across that way. I'm not a fan of the grossly exaggerated styles. More subtle 'interpretations'. I might do one of him as he is now conveying a more wry, sly, cunning, kinky, foxy-stoat, creepy-uncle, dirty-ol' bastard, but-still-rib-splittingly-hilarious air about him, baring his 400-teeth smile and an array of handsome crinkles... *grins*
