Spacegirl time!

It's always spacegirl time. Those who know me, know that I do love the retro spacegirls. I prefer the butt-kicking types to the follow-the-hero around types, of course.

Anyhoo. This was the second piece I did for the Sweet Tarts show for the show at the S.P.A.C.E Gallery. The deadline was fast approaching when my original second idea sort of fizzled. Stuck for an idea, I decided to re-visit a piece I did as an art trade with pinup artist Becca (I got a Cdr. Susan Ivanova pic in return. Zowie!).

This first is the one that is on display at the gallery right now. Given the deadline for submission was a day away and my watercolor skills need work, I opted to avoid color.

The two color ones are tests for Christie, the gallery owner. She wants to turn the spacegirl into a promo sticker! Holy Skamokaway! Couldn't decide between these two color schemes. Any thoughts?

Listening to while posting: "Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis. In my head. Haven't turned on SOMAfm yet. Weird.

Definitely the earthy one if you want substance. If you'd rather be more metallic, no, wait, perhaps carbonite, then of course you need to lighten up and go blue!

and so terribly awesome, Rick, the shes are lovely, powerful, and fun.. and of course, I am so partial to ROUND!..

I like the first one, the color is great but still allows you to see the whole design at once. I am usually partial to blue and purple, but I prefer the first. Though if you did a third with a blue or purple ring, you might achieve similar results. Great image!

Both color schemes have their charms and I cannot decide. Good luck on your decision.

I don't know how holy it is, but we have a Skamokawa (sometimes pronounced with the "y" at the end) which is about 1.5 hours drive from here. I believe you were influenced by the gods of the lower Columbia river into saying that.

Which ever color scheme, just keep that suit inflated. :)
