Jim Henson by WonderDookie Jim Henson by WonderDookie
Jim Henson for a caricature contest over at - [link]

I am such a Henson fiend. I joined the forum specifically for the Henson contest.

I assume people might wonder why I drew Kermit as a sock puppet. Like I said on my blog - "I just think it's really amazing how Jim Henson was able to take unassuming materials like bits of plastic and felt and create fully developed characters with such memorable personalities." This is my way of illustrating that thought process.

Comments and critiques always appreciated!

You got not only his features, but a great expression! I really like how the shadows of your paper effects add to the depth and creates a crisp shading of the shapes :)

Thanks again! I've really been enjoying playing around with those shapes in the caricatures. It has been a fun style to play around with and develop a bit.

Oh geez. Yeah, it's a bit embarrassing how much crap I have in my gallery. I keep meaning to go through and delete a lot of stuff... but they are my babies and I can't let them go. I also think it's interesting to go through someone's gallery and see the progression of their style over the years.

Holy hell, if your gallery contains stuff from only a year and a half's worth of practice, that is truly remarkable.

Nice work on this- I like the cut-out look of it.
