Tyrion Lannister Caricature Bearman Cartoons Peter Dinklage

So here is my continuing efforts at trying new things related to drawing. This is my caricature version of Peter Dinklage, known to Game of Thrones Fans as Tyrion Lannister. You can see the beginnings as a simple pencil sketch, then I added watercolor and ink to the image and finally pulled it all into Photoshop to color it.

This is probably the longest I have ever worked on one image, only because I am learning some new techniques as I go. Might tweak the color some more but here is where it stands now.

    This is freakin’ amazing, Bearman! I didn’t know you had it in you, even though I’ve seen the video footage.

    Seriously though, this is some pretty impressive work. I think you’ve been holding back on us all these years. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Bearman says:

      That was the first time I actually drew with a pencil in years. YEARS. You know me…slap some digital ink on the digital canvas and go. This was a frickin’ process. One I can say I did and now I wonder how long before I try it again. haha


  2. Comedy Plus says:

    It’s an excellent piece of work. You should be very proud. I can’t imagine what else you need to do to make it better. I’m just saying.

    Have a fabulous day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Jande says:

    This is perfect, bearman. You need to pick up a pencil more often! <3 Only thing that's missing is a pic of the guy for comparison. You know for Luddites like me who don't watch movies. (But I did do an image search, and your work is spot-on!):`D

  4. Binky says:

    I really like the image, and the style you did it in. Though I have no idea who he is.

  5. Scott Worthington says:

    Don’t know this guy, but he looks PISSED.

  6. Lisa says:

    Too cool, he has that 1970’s action star look!

  7. Looks just like him too. thanks for showing the process. Ya know, his last name is perfect for him (giggles)

  9. This is spectacularly well done!

  10. Yeah. I haven’t seen ‘Game of Thrones’ yet. Go figure.
    Doesn’t matter, though – this is AWESOME, Bearman! I’m particularly impressed by the washes / watercolor bit… I don’t know how you do it. Trying to control water is something I’ve never been able to do. Man… I sure hope you do a lot more of these… your technique is impressive, but I really, really dig your style!!! Definitely one of my favorites!

    • Bearman says:

      Obviously I couldn’t control the watercolors either. The hair turned out too dark and I couldn’t pull the watercolor off the page b/c supposedly I used the wrong type of paper. But everything can be fixed in photoshop

  11. This is Awesome! Really, really impressive!

  12. Nef says:

    At the beginning I drew by pencil and the first time I tried electronic I put the pad away in shame for 90 days. As my drawing skill improved, I noticed that it did faster in pencil than electronic. It has taken a loing while to reach the point I am right now, which is better than yesterday, but hopefully worse than tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m trying to say that your caricature is great and you should keep on working on a skill that you obviously have. How to go about this is something only you can figure out, though.

    Doodle on, my friend!

  13. Red says:

    This is phenomenal. I love the progression. I think there are far too few who appreciate the work which goes into a great caricature.

  14. Perk at Work says:

    Nice work! (Thought I don’t know the guy.) I guess I need to check out this Game of Thrones business.

  15. Bill Murphy says:

    That looks wicked! I wouldn’t change a thing. Great job!

  16. frigginloon says:

    Sheez, he looks bigger in real toon. Great one Bearman.

  17. Mark Stokes says:

    Those eyebrows alone should have their own drawing! Very well done, Bearman!

  18. bschooled says:

    Love it, Bearman! I’ve never seen Game of Thrones, but Peter Dinklage is my favorite.

  19. Tony McGurk says:

    I know nothing of this Game Of Thrones of which you speak. But one thing I do know is that you’re an incredible Caricature Artist. Fantastic work on this one my friend.

  20. Andro says:

    This is brilliantly drawn Bearman,
    well all of your cartoons and drawings
    are awesome so this latest one just
    adds to the genius that is your artistry ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great Monday Bearman ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Now can you make one of him slapping joffrey

  22. Well done! I haven’t seen Game of Thrones yet, but the drawing is pretty good!

  23. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Wow Bearman, awesome artwork. I don’t know who the dude is either and he looks scary enough that I probably don’t want to know.
    I have always known that you were a first class artist though.

  24. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I went back and looked closer. He is even scarier than I thought. He looks like a young Ted Kennedy.

  25. Nate Fakes says:

    Again, very good! You’re getting these down well. For some reason, I feel like if it were in black & white it would be very NewYorker-ish. I can’t put my finger on it but it reminds me of a Harry Bliss looking cartoon.

  26. Tyler says:

    Heck yea! Tyrion is a boss. Good rendition of him, too.

  27. Cha says:

    That’s a really good caricature! And I love the fact that you’re still learning new techniques. ๐Ÿ™‚
