just HOW do you make those images?? they are fantastic.

Do you start with a photograph of the real person and morph it into the cartoon-like image?

What software do you use?

Well... they are done all with PhotoShop (5.0 version). I am a portrait painter so I actually paint these. I use photos to go by but there's really no way to 'morph' a photo to look like a caricature. If you are familiar with PhotoShop, I use lots of layers to build up the cartoon. The color swatches and brushes menus are the mainstay, plus a lot of the burning and dodging tools. It's tedious and complex but MUCH faster digitally than the traditional way of illustrating. After all, I can copy/paste, enlarge, shrink, flip, rotate and such.

I taught myself the program for PhotoShop and developed this cartoon technique after I saw what was actually possible.

The Red Queen has to be totally devastated that her former co-president, Willard Blythe Jefferson Rodham Clinton, didn't get the Chief Justice gig.

Why can a person promote a cartoon they made and it gets a pass, but I present part of my standup routine and it is zotted for self promoting vanity?

Delightful! Roberts really is a boy scout (in character), and that is why the left hates him so. Thanks for the ping!

This poerson is a regular contributor, and good..

I havent seen your comedy routine- but if you were doing self promotion that is REALLY frowned upon here.

She puts these cartoons here for free distribution

So you do the actual drawing with a mouse?

Yep. But realize that the mouse is using the 'brush' tool so in my mind I'm using a brush -- just like when I paint regular portraits on canvas. It's the same principles of colors, blending, shading, and such. There are 'erase' tools and of course I can vary the brush tool to any size and softness I need. It took FOREVER to learn how to do this, but I just love it now. No cleaning up brushes, no buying paints...

But the layers thing in PhotoShop is really important. I can 'paint' on a 10% wash of a color (like when I am doing skin tones) and double that layer, which makes it go faster. Or I can go into the Color Hues menus and play with the actual color (make it more yellow, red, blue, green, magenta or increase the saturation and such).

That little mouse is a mighty thing!! :)

I guess I'm just a no-talent fumble-fingers.

I remember trying to do a signature for faxes back before scanners were affordable. Took me hours to get an acceptable one.

The only thing I ever did that was successful was a fraud.

I am a foe of "non-representational art."

http://www.artrenewal.org/index.html

I did an "abstract painting" in photoshop, and then played around a little bit to see how many people I could get to accept it as a digital copy of a legitimate piece of art.

Interestingly, nobody ever called me on it.
