Rendering Salinger

Usually when I do a rendering of a celebrity as part of Celebrity Sunday, I also do screen captures every so often and compile an animated gif, in order to show the building process of the painting. This week I chose J.D.Salinger to do as a caricature. So, as the image seemed a relatively easy one to do, due to some really good reference images, I decided to do a time lapse capture of the whole process instead. To show my audience in some detail the methods by which I do the artworks. The video can be seen at YouTube, or seen below.

The artwork itself was one of my quickest, with only 4 hours of rendering time counted in the process. The final render can be seen below, and the artwork can be found in the shop for sale.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
