This past weekend, I had the privilage of watching my friends Dave and Bethany get married.  And, now that all of the festivities are finished, I can finally post the artwork I did for their wedding invitation.  It was a blast attempting to capture their personalities in a caricature, while still remaining restrained and respectful enough for the occasion.

This is Bella.  The second portrait of Justin Caridi’s two daughters.  As I sometimes get asked, I thought I would explain my process a bit.  This is not a photo manipulation, but a digital painting done “by hand” on my Wacom Cintiq, using Corel Painter.  I take several photographic references, usually focusing on one pose, then use multiple photos for lighting, shading, and color reference.  I draw a rough “pencil” sketch to outline the shape, then layer up color bit by bit, much like traditional media, until I get the desired result.  Next time, I will post some “in-process” pics.  Enjoy!

Here is the first of two portraits I did for my new friend Justin Caridi, of his daughter Sophia.  What a cutey!  I had a lot of fun messing around with color and texture to give it a vintage photography feel.  Let me know what you think!

So, here is my latest rendition of the Treases.  I am working toward offering portrait services to customers looking for a unique digital likenesses for use in print and digital media.  How many of you would be interested in something like this for you or your family?
