Lady Gaga VMA etch a sketch by pikajane Lady Gaga VMA etch a sketch by pikajane
So lately I have been etchasketching a lot of Lady Gaga. Here's some of them.

Why, might you ask?
Well, I like her music. I can't say I like it all, but I like a good portion of it. I used to like most all of it, but lately I have been convicted about my musical choice, and frankly, some of her messages do not hold well to my Christian ideals.
It doesn't make her any less of an amazing musician and artist, though! I find her music to be inspiring, especially songs like Speechless and my new favorite, Changing skies.
One of my favorite things about Lady Gaga, though, is that she is not afraid to express herself in any way she wants. I may not agree with all of her forms of expression, but it's something I have also aspired to do. She really reaches out for the people that have been ostracized for the very things they were, and I really connect with her.
This is the reference I used for this piece:

I had to restart this once because I am really trying to focus on capturing her likeness. While this piece is nowhere near perfection, I feel as though I got pretty close to capturing her likeness. I might be biased, but I think it looks a lot like her.

I decided -not- to sign this piece, because I didn't want it to throw the focus off of Lady Gaga.

At least some people are good at using Etch-A-Scetch's. XD! That's pretty cool how you drew that on one of those.

This is amazing! I love how soft and fluffy her eyelashes are! I generally just love how the entire picture looks. I prefer it to your reference. It just looks so delicate and pretty and the way her lips and hair came out.

:sigh: me likeys. I don't know how you do it. I can only do straight lines. And not even interesting lines.

Oh my gosh, I know I comment a whole lot, but you must be my twin separated from me at birth :wow:
You must be the first person that I've EVER met that agrees with me 100% on Lady Gaga. All the time, I get "Kaitie, you're such a Bible thumper, so why do you listen to Lady Gaga(or My Chemical Romance or Cher or...or...or)," and they don't understand that I am perfectly capable of liking some things about her, and disliking others.

As for the piece - stunning! A lot of the time, when a piece has very few lines/shapes, it can seem boring, but your style brings out just the perfect lines that are needed - no more and no less. I don't think I could ever master drawing on an Etch-a-Sketch even if I got good at the technical part of how to turn the knobs just so. I would never be able to capture someone/something in this way no matter how hard I tried. Absolutely beautiful!

Wow, thanks! Yeah, I know what you mean about Lady Gaga, sometimes I think people expect that I shouldn't like her because of the bad aspects of her. Thank you very much! I have been trying to find ways to give only the information that is essential in a line art, so far I have been making pretty good progress on it :)
