Tilda Swinton for Caricaturama SD 3000
The current winner, Kacey Schwartz, chose the next subject on the weekly Caricaturama Showdown 3000 page. I wasn't very familiar with Academy-award-winning actress Tilda Swinton, but Google-imaging her displayed porcelain Scottish skin, interesting bone structure, vivid true-green eyes and flaming red hair. She was also a classmate of Diana, Princess of Wales at the small upper-class English girls' school they both attended in the sixties.
I wanted to emphasize the lack of color in her skin, and emphasize its abundance in her eyes and hair. This was done in Photoshop with my trusty Wacom Intuos. Today, I need to find out how to pull the nib from my Wacom pen; it's worn down (and can be replaced) but so far I haven't been able to get it out with tweezers... :-(
