Barack Obama Caricature Study by RodneyPike Barack Obama Caricature Study by RodneyPike
Due to the growth of my business and the ever increasing emails / notifications and everything that goes with it, I will unfortunately no longer be able to answer all of my comments directly. I would like to thank all of you in advance for the support, comments, favorites and watches. I appreciate each and every one of you and value your friendship. I'm posting a few ways of staying in touch with me below. Thanks so much! Be inspiredů :work: :forgiveme:

This is a caricature study of Barack Obama. It's been over a year since I've done one so it was due. I did many crazy exaggerations of Obama when I was doing Photoshop contests but back then I was more concerned with the image being as absurd as possible and not so much about likeness and more correct exaggerations. This piece is not meant to be funny. It's simply a portrait study of Obama done for practice. I've been real busy lately with some projects that didn't allow me time to do these kinds of works for practice so I was happy to be back at learning what I love. These projects I've been working on weren't really show pieces eitheráhence the lack of posts lately. I've also been spending a lot of time building my social network. Google+ has been real good to me so I've put a lot of time and effort into increasing my presence there. With 1.2 million followers after a little over a year, it's well worth my time there. If you're not there, come and join me some time at [link].

At the request of many of my friends, I will be doing a Beanathon soon as Mr. Bean has been by far my most popular character. I'm going to do a few more pieces so I'll have around 25 manipulations in the collection.

Absolutly wonderful done! :clap:
Nice work Rodney! The character subtleties and exaggerations seem so right and perfectly executed as well as the tonal and color changes from the forehead to the rest of the face.
