C'est l'ame-stram-gram by dr-kelso C'est l'ame-stram-gram by dr-kelso
I've finally finished it!

it's a picture dedicated to 10 years of me listening to my favourite singer Mylène Farmer. one day in 1999 I was switching channels on my TV and saw a small piece of her video "L'ame-stram-gram" which completely changed my life because I was really shocked.

you can see this wonderful video here > [link]

on this picture I was trying to paint Mylène as a main character of this video. but I didn't use any references except the face reference so the costume is not correct.
face reference - by Claude Gaussin [link]
also i've used some brushes from Ron Deviney.

lots of things have changed since that time but I still adore her music.

------------------------------

EDIT 1 / 24-07-2009
I've changed the size of the head and some features of face and clothes. the previous version can be seen here > [link]

I NEED CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICS PLEASE!

I quite like this one.

The wispy nature of the picture around her gives more focus to her face, which is itself a story. Her expression is blank and cold, which leaves the observer wondering "What is she looking at?"

It is vague, but that's what I love so much about it!
