Corporate Artists wasting their talent by day, and unleashing their art super powers by night!
Hahaha! You are really aiming for more "art-rections" with this piece. I laughed out loud when I saw it, in a good way. The two really go together. The finished piece looks like a magazine cover, great design! I would also love to see some freehand Tracy sketch work on one of these projects though.
Ha, great concept. Arman's right those two work very well together, good choices!
Colors are very vibrant! It definitely catches the eye, but I agree with Arman, lets see some freehand stuff! I think it would me much more interesting to see your interpretation of Elvira in your own style. Even if you "traced" the photo with a pencil like Drew Struzan style, I think you would get a more interesting result. I hate to get all introspectively hippie art school, but you lose a little bit of the emotion with such a static photo. Please don't take my comments as someone who is sayin shit for the sole purpose of bein a jerk...like i said before, I think it will benefit us all to actually critique eachother. So go ahead and bash mine when i post it, i want to hear it.
I definitely dig the background, very cool idea with the pattern. The color of the background I wish was a little more muted so she'd stand out a little bit more, since the color value of the red shirt and background are very close. Also the Thundercats logo looks a little straight on, and I think it probably needs to have some perspective to it. Otherwise very cool idea with the queen of the night. I remember staying up late to watch her host those bad movie nights.
also... you know what would have been cool is if you signed it "cheetara" in the corner in the same way as your source photo...
lol!!!cheat-ara! totallyi sure hope that elvira pic was a stock photo and not something that is copyrighted...
This is great Tracy! You seamlessly combined these 2 characters into one hot kitty. Nice work.
Thanks for the comments everyone! I am inspired to do something more sketchy next week. Thought about making a collection of vector girls for all these projects so they will sit well together but it would be a good exercise to try a different style. @ Anonymous, not worried about copyright issues since I am not making any $$$ off of these illustrations. You might find this interesting though, it's information on a famous case involving Shepard Fairey and his Obama "Hope" poster. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama_%22Hope%22_poster
