That's top class, not sure about the background as it looks very digital, but the rest is solid!

Thanks Niall, the background is a temporary thing. Still working on the complete illustration.
The american flag is not part of the final background, but thanks for your advice!

Wow, this is fabulous!!

Great job Edo. I agree with Niall about the background, it gives the foreground figures a digital 'cut-and-paste' feel, but the rendering on the faces is superb!

Thanks for your comment paul! This is what blog's are about. I put in the background for now. Have little time to work on the illustration at the moment, but the final piece is much bigger and definently without the flag. Let's say: get ready for round 1 and fight! Great to hear form you!

Spot on McCain Edo nice work.

Jason Seiler said...

Looking good, your McCain is really nice!

Edo, if you don't mind, one thing that I think could help the piece . . . a small suggestion if you will. I'd like to see Obama's neck a bit thinner, he's sort of boney, and thin, I think it's great to exaggerate that as well. Great job on McCain's exaggeration, I really like his neck!

Absolutely don't mind at all.
Different artists different ways to look at artwork. Sometimes you stare too long at a painting that you lose the focus. Was already going to fix him and definently going to try out your advice. Also gonna change his chin a bit. Talk to you soon.

haha, nice illustration! I really like the head shapes and expressions.

Hugo Freutel said...

Well done Edo. Great shapes.
I am just missing your politic comment in the caracature.
Originally caractures come from political cartoons.
What is your message when you see or hear Obama or Mc Cain?
Now it is a masterpiece in esthetics.
To my opinion polital cartoons are having stronger message and media attention than the best renderd caracture cover.
