The One Hour Caricature

When one has but one hour to pull off a caricature, what does one do? That was the issue I faced with this piece I did, minutes after the conclusion of one of the most surreal Super Bowls I have ever witnessed. My brother came up with the idea, and I immediately went to work on the pencil sketch. When I couldn’t get my scanner to work, I had to photograph it from my phone, at night. I cleaned it up as best as possible in Photoshop before applying some color overlays.

Overall, I’m happy with the likeness. Wish my scanner was working. Wish I had more time for rendering, but I wanted to get this out into the digital universe as timely as possible. I received great response from it, including a ton of “hearts” on Instagram. If you aren’t already following me on Instagram (really? why not?) I encourage you to do so @hummelillustration.
