Benedict Cumberbatch Caricature

Caricature features

I would say Benedict Cumberbatch has a great face for caricature. He has a particularly wide nose bridge. The result is his eyes are spaced really far apart.

He also has a long face (which I had to exaggerate). He also has really wide cheek bones.

His lips are also really distinctive. His top lip has an interesting and unique shape. It has really tall peaks.


Painting Technique

I have been experimenting with my painting techniques…

I am leaving this one loose and painterly. I started with a dark saturated purple and painted all of the color on top of that.

That really works for a loose painting as the purple background show through in many areas.

I feel it creates a raw energy in the painting and also unifies the color.


Let me know if you like the painting in the comments…

 Here is the pencil drawing….

I like to work up my caricature paintings in pencil first. This helps me to explore the light and shade. This really helps me because when I start to paint, I have already created a good likeness.
