For my Bruce Willis caricature I wanted to work from photo reference which portrayed him as the action man we've come to know him as. So what better than a screen shot straight from Die Hard 4. I loved the lighting in this scene and enjoyed painting it. My process for this was to do a detailed black and white value painting (I spent the majority of the overall time working on this stage). Next I painted a layer in colorize mode blocking in with my split compilation palette before returning to normal mode and detailing the piece in a direct painting style. After a bit of horizontal flipping and a few structural changes I was now happy he no longer looked like a distorted potato and pleased with the finished result.

This is awesome, i just feel that with all the detail around the eyes and top half of the head, the whole top lip and bottom lip/chin looks relatively neglected. I have to say though, the eyes are uncanny and the pic as a whole is still amazing. Good job.

Pretty good; shame you've made a famous American hard-man look quite literally like a dick! - Seriously look at the shape, colouring, tone, and characteristic shiny bald dome! LOL
