Truly Outrageous



Never seen an episode of Jem and The Holograms, but it being kids' TV week here in the Micklair, plus my reliance on 80s pop to get me through my day edged me toward drawing this tidy piece of electroskirt. Should've eased off the angles possibly, but pointy ladies are SO 1986, right? I love the fact that Jem is dressed in the style of all the current batch of pop-tartlets too. I'm so dated, I'm edgy.

Reminds me of Dazzler from the X-men especially with the eye shadow. Very 80s.

Lovely work, I like the angles! Have at em I say. What was the lead baddie chick's name? She had green hair and was pretty hot.

Dan Coyle said...
