About this work..well the initial idea was really old, and it come in my mind after I saw the Katy Perry Music Video "[http://youtu.be/t5S d5c4o9UM]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: url=http://gallery.minit okyo.net/view/556341

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-s cene-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!
