Illustration Friday: 80's


1880's that is. It might not be the 80's we are used to, but I think she still might be hiding some Olivia Newton John leg warmers under that dress...maybe some parachute pants... or lots of zippers. I had some great costume reference from the 1880's so I thought I'd try something a little different. Just a sketch for now. I will add paint later. It may or may not happen this week. I'll post it as soon as it is done. Enjoy.

Loveley illustration - nearly every contribution to IF 80s this week has mentioned ONJ's leg warmers - I didn't realise they had such an iconic status.

Hey, Guy! Great idea for a twist on the topic. As always, your sketch is quite awesome and appealling.

Yay! Happy to see that it's a puffy dress and not a puffy hair-do! Very stylish and pretty!
