Belated Efforts...


Last Friday was the birthday of Singer/Songwriter Regina Spektor. Happy Belated Birthday REGINA; if your lurking on the blog. I really dig her music and her voice, and figured she'd be fun to do a caricature of. I found a great photo of her online, I guess her voice allows her to make some impressively large mouth shapes. I didn't manage to pull this image together in time for last Friday. However, I'm putting it together for today's post, with the intention of hammering out a few other projects ... Furthermore I'm attaching some progress of the image so you can see how I hammered it out..

Comments and Feedback are Very welcome..
Hope you dig...

Thanks Vincent...I'm struggling with these quite a bit... I feel like I need to work consistently from more then just a few bits of reference... the images kinda limit creativity... But, on the whole I'm happy with this one...
