Ben Linus from Lost


I've seen a few caricatures of this guy around the web and I just don't get it. His features are already exaggerated as they are. Imagine that I were to paint Kieth Richards. There's really no need to embellish. It's all right there, horrible and grotesque. Why fuck with awesome?

Lucas : a bit of color



I'm not too sure about the likeness yet, but something's starting to happen.

lucas: step one and one half


Is it Portishead or the fumes that are giving me the idea to drown myself in the toilet?

Lucas: Step one.


I'm trying something a little different this time. Usually I start a painting by doing a few preliminary sketches. Once I get one that works I'll transfer it to my support and go from there. No sketches this time. I'm trying to go a bit outside of my comfort zone by just diving right in. Hopefully i'll be able to correct some of the mistakes in the drawing when I start laying in the paint.
