Painting Sid by Loopydave Painting Sid by Loopydave
Sid James, part of a DVD series on comedians I've been doing for Australian release. Kind of embarrassed to admit I had never heard of him before the job, but then I've never watched a single 'Carry On' movie, wasn't raised in England, and well, he passed away in 1976.

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop.

'Carry on up the Khyber' is probably the best one. Cool pic :)

Hahahaaaaa.... man you sure can stir up the past with these brilliant works. I notice you have one of the two Ronnies in your collection of funny caricatures, by any chance have you the other ?( Ron Corbett )

Cheers, continuously amazed, Bare.

Thanks! I never did illustrate Ron Corbett... the other Ronnie was a DVD cover for a documentary on Ronnie Barker. Fun job though, and Ronnie Corbett would have been great to paint!

This is so excellent, and really captures Sid's personality! Also a really interesting step-by-step. I love your style so much.

Maybe rounder, less angular features (eyebrows/mouth/eyes,nose)? Only by a small amount though, as it's pretty near perfect as it is!
