This is just wonderful. Truly a charicature in every sense of the word. Best for me so far without a doubt.
Great work - and thx for the WIP (the last three steps are the goal - intresting to watch). Maybe you should try to get rid of the texture (or at least "soften" it), which lays over the whole pic... it's too regular in my humble opinion, maybe it's ok only over the altered section. Otherwise great stuff, I like your talent to caricature people - keep it up.
that's was really very cool work mr.pike congrats on the woody and hope to see more works like that with wip , keep going
Nice work Pike, grats. great wip, would be great to see more of them
Excellent work. The simple background happens to be my preference in portrait compositions but I think people here like the backgrounds, like it's an extra cherry on top so that might be the difference between first and 4 in this contest because this is a great charactature, mate.
