Tonight Showdown by taho Tonight Showdown by taho
Some job work for an upcoming game/app

Was asked to do caricatures of Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. The actual files are separate and I just put them together here in one deviation.

Nice! You definitely rocked the caricature thing. And like you mentioned in a previous comment, I agree -- Angelina Jolie would make a great caricature.

Nice drawing :) The look reminds me of the animated shorts that used to be seen during MadTV or SNL.

Nice caricatures. And to take my chance to rant on this subject, I never thought that NBC would top the way they screwed Letterman back when they gave the Tonight show to Leno, but they somehow managed to out-do themselves! I've rarely seen someone go out with more class than Conan did last week. I've got to say, I don't think I'll ever watch the Tonight show again...

I like the artwork. A video game, you say? Will I be able to perform fatalities on Jay Leno? If so, I'm there day one.

I'm not sure what the programmers did. I'll ask later. Fatalities? lol.

I thought it was funny the way Conan ran up NBC's bill before he left. It was kinda like a take off from the old 'Dine and Dash' trick.

won't watch leno anymore.
Late night tv means Letterman(my old favorite anyway)

very good likeness, but I agree, not even being mean, JAys eyes are to soft and adoring in the pic. To puppy dog like. Just an area that might need improvement IMHO.

If by "win" you mean "win the hatred of comedians, celebrities, and the general public," you're absolutely right! And yes, The Tonight Show as well, but it's a dried up old husk of a franchise at this point.

Team Conan all the way. Leno panders to the dumber quotient of the viewing audience and honestly, he can suck it.

Wow, you should try doing caricatures more often :D It's a great likeness!

Thanks Shelly. I did, however, have the luxury of seeing other caricatures of them scattered on the net and not to mention them just having very apparent features that inspired the exaggerations. I think it's definitely easier to do with faces that have a lot of character, maybe someone else that'd be a great caricature would be Angelina Jolie :D
