1.21 Gigawatts? by KrisCynical 1.21 Gigawatts? by KrisCynical
Our first assignment of the semester in Illustration is to do a charicature and a realistic piece of any recognizable public figure, celebrity, etc. You can use the same person for both, or a different person for each. We're also allowed to portray an actor in a role he or she has done in a movie.

So here in all my geekish glory is a charicature of Doc from Back to the Future. I have NEVER successfully done charicature before and I still don't think I'm that good at it, but I hope you can at least tell who he is. I'm playing with ideas for putting the clock tower and/or a bolt of lightning in the background, and perhaps have hands holding the two ends of the plug he put together in the first movie just as the lightning struck the tower in the finished version. And that thing on his temple is the bandage from where he fell off the toilet while trying to hang a clock and hit his head on the sink, making him think of the Flux Capacitor.

I told you this was in geekish glory.

Back to the Future was truely the best comedy triology during the 80's. I love the third one the most though.

I can see who this is and I love the picture. About the charicature bit, t's not quite a charicature yet, not that I can draw charicature, I've never actually tried yet. I would say his strong points are his blulging eyes, his crazy hair, and ofcourse the stitches/bandaids. I would draw those eyes even more bulgin'.... and perhaps make his hair stick up a bit more in odd directions.... Hope I'm useful...

Great picture :+fav:
