Guess the Famous image/person

Postby BadgerJelly on July 4th, 2018, 1:07 pm 

I am learning how to draw on my ipad so will post some images here to judge how well I am doing.

Please guess what the image is.

Here is the first rough sketch (took me around 30mins):

Why do I get this instead of the image? It has been this way since that f*cking idiot took over.

Dropped the pencil outline now:

Steve Martin :P

I guess if you’ve ever watched House you know this is Hugh Laurie by now. At least I hope so! I guess my initial sketch wasn’t awful if Biv spotted the similarity.

A lot of fun to do, and learning alot too. I’ll post one more with picture I was working from and maybe start another famous person.

Note: I cannot see the resemblance and I drew the dam thing! Very challenging photo.

Turn off javascript. I did, and SPCF still loads just fine. Just make sure you have an exception option, so you can input the sites you want to still run scripts on. Some require it.

I'm horrible at the outline stage -- I can't believe BIV saw Hugh from that!

My Guess on this one is that its the actress from westworld

I was going to guess Thandie Newton, but mostly because I know Badger fancies her.


Hugh has a great face for an actor - very expressive features. I know his face well because I am a fan of his jazz/blues piano stuff that's available on the Net, and also watched "House M.D." And I've seen some of his Bertie Wooster shows, too, with Stephen Fry.

I think I’ve kinda salvaged Thandie ... thanks to the power of digital art (cut and paste) made something that is slowly starting to resemble the picture. Had to shift the eyes down a little and the mouth up.

Still doesn’t look like her yet, but I’m more confident now.

Next one I’ll be starting soon ...

This one should be much harder to guess until I’ve got a good amount of detail in:

Some colour. Kind of taking form ... slowly. No, correct guesses yet.

Bill Clinton! Haha! Yeah, I see that ...

Hopefully if my judgement reasonable you should be able to get it now?

Looks like somebody I should recognize, but maybe it's a case of not knowing the person? Not sure who it is - well done though!

I’ll see if I can do enough tomorrow so you can have a better guess. Angela Merkel! Haha!

I think you’ll be familiar enough with the film and actor.

Teh right side of his face is done. Once I’ve got his left eye, chin and nose detailed I think you’ll get it. My mates got it :)

Hopefully you recognise this now? Name the movie and the actor if you can (if not will reveal later, going to move onto something else):

I was pretty sure my movie guess was wrong as soon as I put it down. He looked a bit younger in Sid and Nancy. And was, in fact, 8 years younger. Yeah, I do remember him as the drug addict/villain in Leon the Professional. Jean Reno was great in that, too. And a nice debut for Natalie Portman.

It's weird that I didn't see that it was Gary a few days ago. This morning I looked at the same image and it was "Oh, duh, that's Gary Oldman, of course."

The difference between today and July 8th was that July 8th we were having a terrible heat wave and I had had a long day, and come in from working in the yard just dripping with sweat. I don't think it's too bad of a hypothesis that brains don't work as well when exposed to extreme heat. But that's another thread, as they say.

While we're talking about Gary, here's a facial matching question for you all:

of the 2 actors who have recently played Winston Churchill - Gary Oldman and John Lithgow - who do you think is the closest resemblance. (Oldman had the benefit of massive makeup and prosthetics; AFAIK, Lithgow did not)
