I don't often draw caricatures in profile but the character Clementine was too irresistible not to have a crack at it. More of a sketch than anything else - and far less caricature than the previous one.

Maila Nurmi aka Vampira.
Of course this isn't how she looked when she played Vampira but I came across this photo of her that looked very cool and was compelled to draw it. I also found out she apparently had a 17 inch waist when she was playing the character. That's ridiculous.
I was going around the house trying to figure out how tiny that is. It's much thinner than my head, it's even thinner than my cereal bowl. Apparently she didn't eat for two days before the show and used to go to Turkish baths to keep the weight down. Obviously it was very important to her but the article didn't explain why.

Jay Z caricature.
I started with this fairly sketchy working up of Jay Z, came back later and fleshed it out more but all it really did was tighten it up or "laying on the concrete" as I like to call it - where the rough is nice, fresh and intuitive but the more work you do on it the deader it becomes.
Here, I'll show you what i mean .. Here's where I took it to later ..
There is of course the chance that if you keep on at it you'll come out the other side and it will eventually get better but when I looked at where I'd taken it to compared to where it'd already been I decided to keep the fresher, earlier version.
Also, for some reason I have a thing with drawing black people with blue/purple skin. I have no idea what that's all about. More than likely, I've seen someone do it really well and it's stuck.

At first I had her with normal eyes then thought I'd change it up and use the alien eye contacts she often wears. Or are they demon eyes? I'm not sure. Either way, they're more interesting than the first eyes I had.
