Happy by Artsammich Happy by Artsammich
I sketched a quick caricature in church and decided to paint it much later. There's something interesting that happens when you're shaping the forms from memory; not necessarily more correct, but I like the result anyway.

I like how there are two ways I can look at this. :) I can either look at the mouth as being where it is, OR I can look at it so that the chin is actually the mouth, and then it looks like a different person that way. :)

Really nice, how you caught his probable feelings. He looks a bit like aged Bilbo Baggins. Just a sweet bit. Don't tell the real person I thought this ;-)

Makes me smile, too. Goes to my happy place.

You can totally still listen while drawing. I don't feel guilty. (I do hide my sketchpad shamefully if anyone ever looks over though)

would you do a kickstarter for this???
Reply
:iconartsammich:
Artsammich Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
Nothing would change if I did a Kickstarter, unless I got enough money to hire 50 artists to do the example images for me. Otherwise all a Kickstarter would do is get a bunch of people breathing down my neck while I killed myself trying to finish it. I know it's frustrating for you that I'm taking my time, but it's better for me. :)

Great job, man. I'm really glad to hear that you go to Church. :) A lot of my artist friends don't, sadly, and I wish they saw the benefit to themselves that it provides.

Oh how sweet! It looks great. But when I saw the small thumbnail I thought the line under his chin was his mouth. ;)
What brush did you use to make the background look like a real painting?
