More Caricaturama Pics!

Here are the latest entries I've done for Caricaturama Showdown 3000. Daniel Day-Lewis is this week's subject, so I decided to draw him in his role as film director, Guido Contini in Nine, one of my favourite films in recent years. I've long been planning to do a group shot featuring the whole cast of Nine, so hopefully this first one will give me the necessary boost I need to start drawing all those gorgeous gals like Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz!

The week before it was Sharon Stone in the spotlight, though to be honest, I felt I missed the mark a bit on her, as her likeness proved to be very elusive for me. I've drawn her of course from her big breakout role as Catherine Tramell, author of murder mysteries and suspected ice-pick killer in Basic Instinct. I hadn't watched the film since first seeing it in the theatre when it debuted, and I must say it's a better film than I gave it credit for. There's a very similar feel to Hitchcock's Vertigo, especially in the cool blonde look of Sharon Stone so reminiscent of Kim Novak, as well as the score that sounds very much like that of Bernard Herrmann. Anyway, it was good to see the film again after all these years.

You said Sharon Stone's likeness proved to be very elusive for you, but in my opinion you nailed the likeness spot on. Great caricature!
