Celebrity Sunday - Jimi Hendrix
Third Sunday in March, and a new Sunday morning (Sunday, 22rd, March), and the series of celebrity portaits was building and awaiting a new caricature. This was after a very successful six previous attempts; with Will Smith (you can see the project; here!), Woody Allen (you can see the project; here!), Julianne Moore (you can see the project; here!), Jack Nicholson (you can see the project; here!), Benedict Cumberbatch (you can see the project; here!) and Bryan Cranston (you can see the project; here!). Loving his music and believing he is one o the best guitar players that eer lived, there was no doubt I had to do Jimi Hendrix. The fact was I had rendered the pencil sketch some days before, as I now have a list of celebrities and when I get a free moment I doodle out ideas.
 
This is my seventh attempt at doing a caricature of anyone!
 
Even though the eyes and hair changed, I was quite happy with the result, so a new one every Sunday; call it Celebrity Sunday. The next in the queue is Mads Mikkelson. So more to come.

You will see that again I had to change the styling from the origiaml sketch above. The hair was obviously wrong, and the eyes seemed, after rendering the first time, too big and not as lazy as Jimi's. All that said it came out quite well.
