Liz Lomax creates cool Caricature Sculptures

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2009 by bearmancartoons

While perusing www.drawn.ca, I came across an entry about Liz Lomax.  Rather than the tradition pen and paper caricature, Liz uses clay figures placed against backgrounds that she adjusts in photoshop for the finished product.    Pretty amazing stuff.    Couldn’t get the video to embed her but you can see a video of her creating Oasis singer Noel Gallagher at:

and you can check out her website with more samples of her work.

**** UPDATE *****

Didn’t realize Liz had a blog as well so here it is.

Tom Richmond Caricature Tutorials

Posted in News with tags , , , , on January 14, 2009 by bearmancartoons

One of my new favorite places on the web is visiting Tom Richmond’s blog. Tom is a freelance illustrator who does a lot of work for Mad Magazine.

I marvel that with his workload he consistently publishes pretty much daily, with tips, news info, and caricatures he has done.

He even has a section where he has highlighted several of his caricature drawing tutorials. Of course even reading his stuff doesn’t make my crap look any better but it definitely helps you look at the drawn image differently. I especially like how he explains the “Law of Constant Mass“.

Whether you enjoy cartooning or enjoy seeing a great cartoonist…check it out.

Create Cartoon Characters of Yourself

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2008 by bearmancartoons

Hongkiat.com has a great post about 11 different sites that you can visit to create cartoon characters of yourself. My favorites were the South Park Studio and Simpsonize ME (obviously to create your own Simpsons character.

I created a cartoon likeness of a family member and had it made into a photo cake. Regular photos look too cheesy but give your friend/loved one a cake with an cartoon likeness of them and they will love it.
