Drew this for my bestest girlfriend in the whole wide world, ~TamsTheGenkiQueen! We both just recently watched Interstella 5555 and loved it to pieces, so the other day after watching it again, I HAD to draw a picture, cause it's all so pretty and sad and stuff.

I tried a couple new tricks, make more than a couple mistakes that turned into awesome things, and overall I think I made myself one pretty piece of picture.

You can see a couple in-progress shots right here:

Original rough sketch.

Digital inks.

The whole picture was done straight in Photoshop CS2, and took about 16 hours spread across two days.

P.S.... The chick's hair drove me CRAZY.

Awesome job!
And how is "Crescendolls" pronounced. In the song, I hear them saying "Hey, everybody y'all" not "Wee, Crescendolls." :/

It's a play on words. If you're familiar with the musical term "crescendo," which means to increase in volume, the pronunciation starts based on that word, which is kre-SHEN-do. So, the Crescendolls is pronounced kre-SHEN-dolls.

That's what I thought. I still can not hear them saying that in the song. :P

You can see it all on Youtube if you're interested. Just search for "Interstella 5555" and one of the first two videos to pop up should be the entire movie. :)
