digital caricatures for Singapore Air Force

Client's brief:-
"Hi Mr Jit, My colleague had previously ordered caricature from you for our Air Force Farewell personnel , your caricature was really well done, we really love it! Therefore we are back to order another 2 more caricature (Caricature in colour marker with theme - with background & body) from you. I would like these 2 pieces to be the same background and theme as you have done previously for the 5 caricature, just the person's face and rank would be different this time(follow attachment) . This is the link that you had done for us so as not to confuse you to which caricature i am referring to. (http://www.caricature.com.sg/2013/07/digital-caricatures-for-singapore-air.html)"


Client's feedback:-
"Hi Chong, Thanks for the caricature! It was really nice~ hope to work with you again...."

wedding couple caricatures @ MBS

Client's brief:-
"....The female can be in a off-shoulder white wedding gown and the male can be in a tuxedo. We would also like a hippo plush toy (photo as attached) to be included in the caricature as well. As for the background, we hope it can have the theme of marina bay sands; as that is our place of proposal and wedding.

Finally, we would like to have the caricatures printed on an ink stamp as well....."

digital caricature of a meditating Indian man

A very long and detailed brief:-
"...1. Caricature Details for my Dad's 75th Birthday.
a. A3 size
b. Dad likes to meditate - so I have provided the pose that he always uses
c. I have provided pictures of my Dad, they are not very sharp and are of low resolution as I had to crop them from group pictures.
d. What the artist needs to remember is that he has to wear a white full sleeve shirt and the white Dhoti (white sarong) with the golden border ( in the pictures please ignore the bags and the lanyard + camera etc - please do NOT include those). Also to remember - there should be 3 thick white lines on his forehead ( each white line should be proportionately as thick as his index finger, with the red big dot in the center of the bottom white line (this is the religious white ash and red kumkum). This dot should be proportionately as big as the tip of his middle finger.
e. He loves his cars - so I have provided them - his first car is the pic called old car, I do not remember the car number, second one was the white herald and its number was MEV 713, His next car was the Fiat - please use a brown color that is shown in the car seat picture - he had a brown fiat and the number was MET 3737. His current car is the Maruthi white colour - I do not know the Car Number.
f. His profession - he is an engineer and throughout his career he worked on building Radars for the Indian Space Research Organization ( ISRO) - for launch of their rockets - this was his passion and even today he talks proudly of this. So I have pictures of Radars and a picture of a rocker launch from ISRO.
g. He worked his entire career in one company called Bharat Electronics Limited - I have provided you with the logo of this company.
h. I have also provided the Calendar for the month of Oct 18th 1938 ( my dad's birthday), it was a Tuesday that he was born.
I. Will be great if you can have a Birthday wish as a title on the A3 paper - saying "Happy 75th Birthday"....."

Untitled
The client wanted many items and in A3 size.
I proposed to draw it digitally to get the details out.
Untitled
The sketch alone takes a lot longer than usual.
Untitled
Inking not any easier.

Untitled
I don't have a close skin colour for him if I use my colour markers.
No such issue when I paint digitally as I have millions of colours I can choose from.
I added more details to the face, especially his complexion.
Not possible if I do it with colour markers.
Looks like this is the way to go for the future caricature drawing?!
Untitled
The painting takes the longest, but the outcome is satisfying!

Love the brush strokes. I think they looked way better than I use Copic black markers on paper.
1 brush, 1 size, and I can vary the stroke width based on the pressure I exerted on the Cintiq.
