Would you just get LOST with these already!

Okay, so... sorry for the anticlimax, but I decided to add one more character...

Fredric Lehne as Marshall Edward Mars:

Also, I've done all my re-drawing. So I'll post the ones with significant enough changes to bother showing...

First, the ones I completely re-drew, starting with Jack. A number of people said they didn't see much likeness in the first one I posted of him, and I know at the time I said I thought it was good, but those critiques stuck with me, and over time I began to see less and less likeness. So finally, I decided to completely re-draw him:


and I FINALLY got one I like of Jacob:

Next, there were a few of the early ones that didn't quite match the shading style I kind of gradually morphed into as I went along. Since my ultimate plan is to put all of these together into one piece, I wanted the style to be consistent, so I went back and touched up these ones...



and Hurley ( I also altered his facial expression a little to make him look less angry):

And the rest of these are just ones that had structural problems that were bothering me. If you're interested enough to go back and compare them with my original sketches, I think you'll see the changes I made...


Daniel (After posting it, I couldn't believe I hadn't noticed that I'd put his far ear waaaaayyy too low!):



Karl (Mostly I just un-crossed his eyes):

The Man in Black:




and Walt:

There were a few others I altered too, but the changes were so minor I didn't think them worth posting.

Anyway, all there is left to do now is to assemble them all into one big poster. I look forward to it, but I make no guarantees about how long it will take me to get that done.

Thanks for looking! Comments and critiques welcome.

Sometimes, even I get busy.

Wow, has it really been almost two months since I've posted here? And to make it worse, I'm afraid I don't even have much caricature work to show for it!

I did, however, finish this one recently. It's my entry for the Bob Dylan contest at Wittygraphy. I thought I was just doing another quiick (relatively speaking) digital sketch, no differenter or specialer than my usual stuff, but several people have now praised it as being one of my best works ever. Makes me wish I'd done it in higher resolution than 100dpi.

Oh, and I also did this one of Karl Malden for Wittygraphy last month:

And, in case anyone's interested to know, I won the Glenn Close contest (see previous post), which was unexpected. So... Yeah, that was all cool and stuff.
