I’m still without a studio to paint in, so here’s another digital caricature sketch to add to the list. This time it’s actor Thomas Gibson, best known as Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner, from TV’s Criminal Minds. He used to be best known as Greg from Dharma & Greg, though his expression is quite different in his current role.

I’m still coming to grips with the caricaturing process – some seem to work while others don’t – and while it might seem to be totally unrelated to landscape painting, it is in fact great training for the eye. Tom Richmond’s blog has some brilliant tutorials for the budding caricaturist.


And here’s one of Mandy Patinkin who plays Agent Jason Gideon in Criminal Minds. I actually started this one first.
