Jay-Z II

Tonight I decided to do another manipulated caricature of Rapper Jay-Z. He has those famous lips and ears so I couldn't resist. I've enjoyed doing this sort of mini series on Rappers. They have lots of character and pretty much anything goes as far as the background is concerned, although I had a little trouble deciding what to do with this one. I must have scrapped 10 versions. I'm still not sure about it but it's done and I seldom revisit a manipulation. Once they're done, it's history. Time to move on and try and make something better. I've included the source images I used below as well as an interview with Jay-Z by David Letterman at the bottom of the post, so stick around for that.
