  • pretty slick sly there @Bunyip02 yes

    Used Genesis for this one.. with a touch of Aiko5 in there and also enlarged the head, gapped her teeth and shortened her legs.. devil

    I did do some post work though to give it an older style look... kinda..

    Thanks Stezza, was thinking of making it more extreme but I liked that one the most.

    Amelia-Aiko 5 looking great, the plane definately adds to the scene !!!!

    Great Lil Side Challenge Misty! Just in time, explanation below. But first:

    Love the fun house mirror reference...reminds me of our local County Fair when I was a kid
    Explode Modifier on the house, maybe?

    @Stezza - love the camera angle and what you did to Popeye. Also the Amelia - bigger head, gapped teeth, shortend legs - nice caricature work.

    @Selina - love the goofy face from the reflection...and the introspective question.... :)

    @Bunyip02 - Great caricature work - could be a magazine cover. Love the swirling background and atmospheric perspective of the terrain. Nice.

    Strangely, I have been working on a camel model the past few weeks that I wanted to 'cartoonize' and make a caricature. It's now on it's fourth iteration. There is a bit of a back story, but this is 'Clover The Camel' and he was supposed to be a simple model as a joke, but then turned more involved. Lol.

    The first attempt was okay, but his head...I don't know, looked like a duckbill platypus or something. Second attempt was just a nose, not pictured. Third attempt got too high poly too quickly and was a disaster. Fourth iteration modeled today and I'm pretty happy with it as a start. My intent was to create a camel based on reference and then do exactly as this nice lil challenge asks and distort the various features to make him the 'Clover The Camel' I envisioned.

    Screen grabs are from newest to oldest.

    Important to note: I have no experience with caricature, so beware... :)


    Edited for typos and more clarity.

  • DesertDudeDesertDude Posts: 554

    Thanks @DUDU! Yes, he is not finished yet - needs some toes, a tail, nostrils, eyeballs...some hair. smiley I plan to do some more work today.

    @Bunyip02 - Those are really cool, what a great gallery of variations! Thanks for sharing.

    @Mistara - Thank you. I remember Joe Camel - many of my friends used to smoke Camels. Is he still around? Oh wait, never mind, just looked him up...

  • DUDUDUDU Posts: 1,898

    OK, I know now why the majority of people confuse a dromedary with a camel: it is because of the cigarettes!

  • DesertDudeDesertDude Posts: 554

    Oh -Doh! I think I get it now.  blush

    But 'Clover The Dromedary' doesn't have the same 'ring' to it. smiley

    Sad Miss Clover, the One-Humped Camel;
       Was, indeed, an unhappy mammal.
          She'd lament her loss and make others cross,
             Their feelings lacking, they sent her packing...
                Now she lives on the English Channel,
                   In a boat of gold and wood panel.

    angry claymation guy

    morph of my custom claymation figure

    sort of a son of Heat Miser - I am Mr. Green Christmas, I am Mr. Sun.  I am Mr. Heat Blister, I am Mr. Hundred and One.  Whatever I touch, starts to melt in my clutch, I'm too much.

    not enough geometry around the end of the nose and sides of mouth to get the lines I want.  will have to revise and resubmit.

    @Diomede - Ha! That's awesome. I love the hair. Heat Miser, wow, that brings back some memories. That used to be my favorite Christmas special as a kid. It was so creative. Some of the others were as well, but that one was especially cool.
