In this Character Development assignment, we had to do a roller girl design for the Charm City Roller Girls. I'm not totally sure how I feel about the final piece, but it's better than my last few assignments. Working out the color scheme was absolute torture (I mean, more than usual) and trying to strike a balance between frills and tough girl punk was weird. Next week, we have to put our girl in action, in some sort of context. I'm sure I'll have carpal tunnel by the time I'm done recreating those stripes.
I pulled inspiration from Marie Antoinette (note the neck and cake) and the totally period-inappropriate video for Adam & The Ants' "Stand and Deliver" (note the stripes on both the face and the dress). I have no explanation for the fetal skull action on her wig-helmet, but, yes, that is a wig-helmet. The rat was thrown in for Baltimore-ness.
Hey, an excuse to post an Adam Ant video? Don't mind if I do.
