My own digital caricature....

I seldom draw my own caricature.
The last time I did that was in 1997, which is 13 years ago.:D
Sketch studies of Jit
Some digital sketch studies I did.... I have sketched so many faces, but it is definitely a weird feeling sketching my own face. Lol!

The sketching and painting process......

Hi Jit,
It was really interesting to see your process there. Can I ask one thing though: You seem to do an initial rough, then put some rough skin tones on a layer UNDER the lines, then colour on top of the lines and rough colour? I have wondered about the best process for this, as when I've done this, I've coloured completely under the lines until a point when I can just take away the lines and then continue colouring. It's probably just whatever suits you best though I suppose!

Thanks for your sharing, Fiachra.
Sometimes, I need the black lines and rough colours beneath. Thus I don't take the whole layer(s) away. I erased them when I need to.:)
