My First Caricature Attempt by LittleGreenGamer My First Caricature Attempt by LittleGreenGamer
Hope you like this one. I was looking through "MAD" magazine while looking at a photo of myself and maybe I can get some good technical drawing and caricature skills from doing this more often.

Hope you like what I did with the text. The font is called "Opticon"

Quite different from your usual. I like it a lot. With all of your art, your lines are so clean, and perfect, it's extremely impressive and smething I've never really been able to do with my art.

This is great! Not to sound gay or anything, but you're really handsome here. Great work! Your more realistic style looks quite good, it's actually inspired me to draw a caricature of myself as well :3

Thanks! :) I don't think that sounded gay at all. I love experimenting with different styles of art (like the caricatures by Mort Drucker, Tom Richmond and Hermann Mejia in "MAD" magazine) Let's just keep praying and maybe I'll make it up to the same level of skill as the artwork on "Grand Theft Auto IV" :D

Oh man, I love GTA's art style, I would love to see you rendered in a similar style to the protagonists from a GTA game on the box art. It would look badass! Though it is digital art, so you would probably have to get pretty good at GIMP first. Good luck.

I don't know. In this video, you can see the "lollipop girl" on the cover being drawn with special tools in this video: [link] But of course, with GIMP, you can use things like the "dodge/burn" tool to get rid of most unwanted lines on facial features like the nose width, bridge and other things like that.

But thank you very much for your compliment on me looking like I should be in "GTAIV". Do you know of a tool for capturing images from a TV screen? My player avatar in "Saints Row 2" looks exactly like me and I want to post it.

BTW, you'd look really cool on "GTA4's" artwork yourself. I could definitely picture you as a Mafia hitman or maybe one of the Irish mob [link]

Awesome! I'm Scots-Irish actually, but I also have Spanish, German, Danish, Welsh, Eastern European and Pacific Islander blood.

Not a bad likeness from what I've seen of your real-life photos. :)
