Here's Monsieur Nicolas Sarkozy, Président de la République Française. A number of other contestants have chosen this leader already so fingers crossed!

UMP is the name of the party he represents, and the tree their symbol. Two afternoons work, taking my time to get the lineart and shading right.

 This is your best piece, still.

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/29/2009 12:59

3rd place?!! OMG O.o

CeeY (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/22/2009 17:47

You've gotten damn good.

SHANN0N (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/18/2009 23:33

Great piece! By far the best in your gallery so far^^ This was my 1st or 2nd choice in the challenge. The jaggy lines of the shoulders and the 'too smooth' hairline are things that could probably be improved on though. The ear, eyes and wrinkes around the mouth are particularly well done imo.

GTK (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/17/2009 13:04

GG mec, t'as pas voler la troisième place ;)

Enfin, très bonne caricature quoi :)

Zheros (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2009 14:18

J'en ai ris de le voir !

Désolé de ne pas eu assez de vote pour le challenge...

Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 8/14/2009 12:52

Merci, j'ai essayé de le rendre un peu niais :p

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/14/2009 05:40

Lol bien joué. Il parait ridiculement heureux ça lui sied très bien ^^.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/11/2009 18:39

This is a great Sarkozy, it got one of my votes.

Also, your best piece so far, keep up the good work ;D

Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 8/11/2009 10:07

Thank you all very much!

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 8/10/2009 22:36

Very good job.

inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/8/2009 14:13

Good caricature, I like the style and it's easily recognizable.

Phantom K (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/8/2009 09:24

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/6/2009 15:57

nice work bud. the shoulders coulda been aaed, they look kinda jaggy. nice dithering + style, though.

Kylo (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/6/2009 14:02

 i love it

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/6/2009 13:04

 wow! amazing!

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/6/2009 12:46

The caricature is perfect, exept the cheeks and the mouth which are a bit too exaggerated. Congrats, you succeed where I failed (it is to say, doing a funny and recognizable caricature. The shading is well done too !

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/6/2009 12:11

look at his nose! ,lol

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 8/6/2009 12:05

Hehe, a lot of people are doing Sarkozy. I always thought he had a very caricatureable face. Nice work :D

Jo (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/6/2009 11:56

I, for one, instantly recognized him - from the preview nonetheless. I say keep it!

Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 8/6/2009 11:54

I exagerated everything, including that unhinged jaw look and the droopy eyelids.
I chose a blue background because blue is one of the most important colours of the French flag (represented monarchy in the day), and 'UMP' and the tree happen to light his face (a bit).
Thank you very much for commenting this before its approval!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/6/2009 11:22

Looks good, but is the mouth really his?

Also, agree about UMP: either give it some twist, or forget it.

I didn't even know about the tree, shows how much I care... :-P

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/6/2009 09:14

He seems to have a bit lazy eye :) I hope he doesn't have it like that in the reality. :x

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/6/2009 08:54

It's a great caricature, I really like it! :)

But I would prefer an another background color without the shorthand "UMP" :x :)
