Swing - Vintage Caricature Portrait

Rendering down memory lane!

After several projects over at Fiverr Pro I suddenly received the oddest request. This one proved to be a more daunting challenge. Needless to say, I jumped at the challenge of doing this rather odd illustration, for a US based grandson. The aim of the Gig (as they are called) was to do a parody caricature of an old favoured vintage photo of a father (he is the small boy) and his father, on a park swing, in a vintage 50’s photograph.

"SWING" - BRIEF

The outline of the brief was a simple idea to create an illustration from an old vintage photograph. The complexity was to give the photograph a caricature feel, and to add necessary detail to the illustration where the photograph was missing it.

THE CONCEPT

The basis behind the illustration was to create a retrospective portrait of a loved photograph. The basis was the connection between a father and grandfather, seen in a vintage photograph. Instead of just doing a simple rendering of the photograph, the client requested it be done as a caricature.

 

The issues involved in the process were that the quality of the vintage photo was compromised with age, scanning and colour changes. There was little in the way of detail in the image, and the scanning process had created some abnormalities in the colour areas. Nevertheless, the process continued, with a sketch set-up render being created first to OK the look. From that a slow rendering process was taken. Slower than normal as detailing and to be created rather than sampled in typical cases.
