Take it to the 80's by nicole-m-scott Take it to the 80's by nicole-m-scott
Adobe Illustrator
Gradient + Pen Tool

Originally titled "Rockaholic Glamazon", it felt too over the top like everything else I do. But the idea is basically still the same. This is an homage to me being an 80's baby and all the things that made up that era of the somewhat cheesy and the ever immortal "Glam Rock".

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Still experimenting with my technique. So while some things are typical of my style, others are still a little rough.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On a side note, I'm mad I was too young to see Jem and the Holograms. It looked like a show I would've liked, in that it was a precursor to stylish cartoons (read: anime) taking over my life. I'll have to look it up when I get the time. If any of you know where the series can be found, hook a sista up!

you remember the 80s being a lot more hoodrat than i do,. for me the nice thing about the 80's was that the scourge known as hip hop had not yet choked out all creativity and culture.

*snort* Too true! I was born in the 80's so I wasn't brought up in the hardcore fashion of that era. Hence the 90's hip hop/R&B vibe you're getting!
But you're approaching hip hop the wrong way. That was the golden age of rap/hip hop before it became auto tuned and flooded with lack of imagination (a.k.a - the 21st century of suckage).

Jem and the Holograms was awesome, I'm sure you can find the series on Netflix (hopefully)

I'm downloading the series via Torrent. I don't know where you can get it "legally", unfortunately. I'm not even sure it's easy.

Yeah, finding older shows is like finding a needle in a haystack most of the time. If you can avoid viruses from downloadable sites. Kinda frustrating sometimes. :iconilikeitplz:
