This was my entry to the freestyle graphics compo at the Icons 2008 demoparty. I had a hard time choosing a category, but IMO it's more pop art than cartoons or political.
The picture has no specific political or other message - I just got a weird idea and wanted to see if I could do it with my very limited digital painting skills. The challenge was to create an amalgam of two reference pictures instead of one as I usually do, a combination of Condi and a Bratz doll. And in the end I'm fairly happy, even though the shading on the hair sucks and the lower part of the picture looks like it's not shaded (even though it is).
The background was actually also inspired by the Bratz picture - it had very similar wavy lines complemented with stars.
