This time I’m here with an “original art”, and not a fanart work ^_^

You can find this work also on:
AnimePaper - DeviantART - Pixiv

First of all I want to thank SamB and Mirtillo for push me to do an original work, and proxima on AP for his help and his kindness!
And also I want to thank all the people that usually faves and comments my works!
Finally a special thanks to Ramon for his help and suggestions! :)

About this work..well the initial idea was really old, and it come in my mind after I saw the Katy Perry Music Video “Futuristic Lover – E.T.”. I liked that song, but more than this I liked the music video, with that strange dresses and make up!
That time I would like to made a manga/anime version of Katy, and I also made some sketches on the paper, but at the end I gave up.

But fews weeks ago, I found this scan:

The pose was perfect, and so I decided to use it like reference to draw the initial sketch; after that I re-watched many times the K.P. Music Video, and finally I finished all the concept!
Anyway you could see all this passages in the speedrawing video :3

To made the background I followed this tutorial: http://blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/tutorials/design-a-beautiful-cosmic-space-scene-in-photoshop
Actually it is a photoshop tutorial, but I hadn’t any problem to use it in Gimp 
I only had to pick others stock images, since the ones he linked aren’t free to use  (you could find all the images that I used at the end of this description)

However this is my first original work since a lot of times, and I tried to made my best, expecially on light/shadow effects >.<
Well, I hope that you’ll like it, comments and suggestions are always welcome!

    This is very pretty, the whole scene is well crafted though I can't help to feel that she's too painty whereas the background is really realistic, hence, they don't mesh very well.

    I do admire your skills from taking a scan and completely rework it and make it yours, I just wished there were more details on her to match the background.

    Keep it up~ :3

    I couldn't say anything more... You're really great in drawning especially becouse you make your works totally new and original. Hope I could see more original wallpaper by you because I think an original work is better especially because you could create a personal art-folio with your copyright. Didn't you ever thought to follow a graphic comic career?

    First, I thought she is sailor Venus from Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon! xD
    You drawing very well *_* really gorgeous! I never understand how people can draw so great!
    I love her hair and blue eyes so much! But, I wish me a little line on her hands, they are looking like a little to blurry.
    Great job! Keep it up! :)

    Just wanted to say that this looks amazing *_* If only Katy Perry's video looked like this...it would've been heaps better. The veils are gorgeous and I love the lighting and how the background turned out (though maybe some more smaller stars would've made it look more realistic and detailed).

    I watched the video and you make it seem so easy to do! And the mask/beads are my favorite parts from this due to all the shading you did - that's not to say the rest isn't good, but details generally catch my eye first. Great job!

    I like it, specially her face, there is where it has more attention to detail I think ^^ the only suggestion I would have it could be more futuristic clothes, I see them too classic ^^', the clothes are gorgeous anyway ^_^ just had to point that out ^_^

  6. mirtillo Jan 31, 2012

    Already commented and faved on AP, what I can say more? Oh, well, I forgot to comment her face!

    She's so pretty *__* mouth and nose are adorable, eyes are beautiful and sparkling *.* I like her make up ^^
