= Lady Gaga attending the 2010 Mtv VMAs in the infamous meat dress.
My other Gaga drawings:
My Lady Gaga Gallery
Information about this drawing: Reference Photo Used Media
= Adobe Illustrator CS4 Tools / features used in Illustrator:
Pen tool (for the vast majority of the drawing, including the dress);
gradient mesh; standard gradient; pathfinder (divide); grid tool (for the fish net stockings); clipping mask; opacity mask on the fish net stockings;
Illustrator's blur filters (only on a few spots on the skin, a few places on the dress).
I had already drawn quite a bit of the hair with Illustrator's brushes before finding these brushes
by Deviant Art member Jimro
(thank you, Jimro!) and decided to use Jimro's brushes to work on the rest of the hair.
I wanted the dress to be a little more detailed in places than it is, but about 3/4 of the way through the drawing, the screen re-draw rate at times slowed down to a crawl, making it very frustrating.
"Live Trace" was not
used on any part of the drawing.Photoshop
was used only to re-size the vector drawing, and I added my name to the lower right using Photoshop. The drawing itself (Gaga, the white border, the colorful swirls, etc.) was all done in Illustrator. Please do not use this drawing without my permission.
Any Deviant Art groups I submit this to obviously do
have my permission to place this in their galleries.
I also do not
object to any Deviant Art members adding this to their Deviant Art collections or Deviant Art "favorite" collection(s), and Deviant Art obviously has my permission to have this art on their server(s).('not authorized' icon courtesy of MyArtPlz)
