I have been working on this Caricature of The Notorious Conor McGregor for about a week now. Its my first foray into celebrity or notable people in a few years. I am very proud of the results and glad I took plenty of time to render it out.
I am also a huge fan of McGregors and it was great fun to paint my first celebrity caricature in years of him. I think he is a fancinating fellow and would love to meet for a drink some day.
I tried to over paint it in photoshop in an oil style but it wasn’t connecting with me so I settled for black and white.
The only thing I copied is the tattoo of the baboon , for it being so complex. I also would like to thank my friends Thomas O’Brien for his advice on the likeness for McGregor and my friend Norrie Kivlehan an up and coming caricaturist in Ireland.
