Peter Jackson caricatures

This is a pen sketch I did quite some years ago. Found it the other day and thought I'd post it online. I cringe when I look at his feet but oh well.... always a WIP, always learning.
I'm still happy with the shading and hatching. 
This one I did up last year. I know at the time I was aiming for a clean feel to it. Which I did find challenging because whatever lines you choose to leave out you hope you can still capture the look of the person.

Favourite books

I've had these books for years... like when I was 5. I use them quite often as they are a great source of inspiration and the actual artwork is amazing. It still amazes me the simplicity of the images but yet what seasoned artist's they were (are) with the technicality and finish.
Fav disney character is Goofy and I love the jungle book characters too.
