Jul 23 Lady Gaga vintage style illustration
Out of all the outrageous and amusing styles Lady Gaga has tried in the past 5 years or so, I have to say that my favorite is the vintage style. Very famine, elegant, glamorous and mysterious…
This drawing was inspired by one of her magazine photo shoots. Her face turned out a little too generic… but I hope there is some resemblance. In the original photography, the eye area was too dark in the shade from the hat, so… I had to use my imagination, sort of. I think she looks like a girl from 1920’s or 1930’s, when women had short bobs and heavy eye make-up.
I covered her over-sized hat with black charcoal. The rest of her was rendered lightly with colored pencils. At the end, I decided to add a red heart, which wasn’t in the original photograph, to give some additional pop to it… I think it has made this illustration piece more interesting.
