Oh, Yeah? by AdamHughes Oh, Yeah? by AdamHughes
A con sketch I did a couple years ago, of everyone's favorite red-haired Pussycat.

The guy asked for a sketch of the character, and I asked if he had a sense of humor; he said 'Sure!' and this is what I gave him.

The proportions are off because it's a convention sketch, done in about 45 minutes, in bad lighting, so don't bother telling me what I already know... ;-)

But I think it's funny; I'd love to do this as real illustration someday. BTW, the "Rat Cellar" is a venue from GUITAR HERO, and 'Violent Apathy' was the name of my GH band.

It was a convention sketch, drawn in about 45 minutes. If I had more time on these things, mistakes in proportions wouldn't happen as much. :-)

The really funny thing about this is that Letters to Cleo used to play at the Rathskeller in Boston.

LtC's singer Kay Hanley was the voice of Josie singing in the Josie and the Pussycats movie, so this sorta actually happened! Except maybe for the cat costume.

Unfortunately, it can't happen again since the Rat closed in '97.

y'know... i imagine you could have just used a mature tag, and left the "edit" out. :P just sayin'... though, i do like that i can still see a ghosting of what was there. not that her expression doesn't give it away, either. :D

:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2009
Well, when I drew it, it was at a convention a couple years before I got a DA account. So, I wasn't concerned with how obscene or mature it was; I just think it's funnier that her obscene gesture is just offscreen. The guy buying the sketch agreed.

"The Rat Cellar." was the original name of an On campus Pub in the 80s to late 90s, till some Christian group demanded it be closed.
It was not closed, but the name was changed to Wrath Scellar [I dunno, wtf?] and stopped serving beer.
It almost closed because of this, but a student group re-opened it.

It's like Josie at the tail-end of her career (no pun intended).

I did a redesign Josie myself and I NEVER thought to have "meowmeowmeow" on the guitar strap.

I was going to type "This piece ROCKS"... yeah. Horrible pun.

The body language of the pose, her facial expression and the beads of sweat glistening off her hair make this piece. And I can't even tell where your proportions are off.

Now that I look at it again, it reminds me of Hopey from Love & Rockets. Great piece Adam!

:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2009
What a compliment(I love LOVE & ROCKETS)!

If it was Hopey, she'd be telling the audicne to "Eat shit and die, Fucknuts!!!"

The proportions are off in the legs; the figure is top-heavy (not boobs), and the legs aren't big enough. Chalck it up to drawing on a flat surface, and the foreshortening created by working that way made me overcompensate at the top...
