RA-RA-RA-RAY!!


I'd watched an episode of Biography about her some days back and figured, my love of noodling out little caricatures and her widely know appearance might be a good challenge for study...
She certainly is Bubbly, and the edges of her mouth curl just so when she is smiling..
Regardless this is just a study with some colors on it... Perhaps I'll dig up the process for it a little later and share that as well...But for now..
Here's Rachel..

Hope you dig,

Yeah I know people hate 'er, but I have a Rache prob as well. She definitely speaks to my condition. ;)

I get an enormous kick out you doing these food network people. :)

Thanks Jim...
I'll see if there are any other food net stars I feel inclined to look at and draw...

I'm also glad the likenesses are getting stronger in my work..it means I'm looking more at the subjects..

How about Alton Brown or that Iron Chef nephew guy Mark Dacascos ?

These last three paintings are excellent, Pedro!

Really looks like you've gotten your photoshop painting skills down to a science. Lovely Rachel Ray.

I can tell this is a good caricature because I want to punch the screen when I see it.
This is mine from a year or so ago:

Thanks for the comments guys....
Elliot: I didn't know that I could make art that made you wanna assault your monitor...hopefully its just the subject that makes you feel that way and not the rendering....
