Lobo

ArtNuggets-NickSmith-LoboDirty pencil drawing for the Ozcomics.com Lobo Challenge this week. It was great fun letting loose and digging into the page with a soft pencil and pushing it around with a paper stump and eraser.

Johnny Voodoo’s Barber Shop

ArtNuggets-NickSmith-JohnnyVoodooThis piece was commissioned by Johnny Voodoo’s Barber Shop in Camira, Queensland, the result of a chance meeting at Supanova. Really enjoyed working on this. One of those great commissions where the client just wants you to do your thing. Great fun.

Steve

ArtNuggets-NickSmith-SCassEver since I started using Zbrush I’ve wondered what it would be like to create a caricature using it. Recently I was lucky enough to be commissioned to do such a thing.

Surprise! Surprise! It turns out that Zbrush is ideal for creating caricatures. With this piece I used Zbrush to get the bulk of the head likeness sculpted, before bringing it into Photoshop to apply colour and paint the body and setting. I’m looking forward to applying this technique to caricatures of the rich and famous as part of the Caricaturama Showdown 3000 on facebook.
