Sweet Child of Mine by lanitta Sweet Child of Mine by lanitta
Hey-hey-hey! :)
This piece is done for #FashionIllustrators Monthly Theme 'Music Infuence' ([link]).

Well, when I got to know about this theme - I knew I would definitely participate - as music and fashion is what I love.
And then watching VH-1 I saw the good old Guns n' Roses video "Sweet Child O' Mine" - this song has always been a sort of a hymn of youth to me, I listened it at school and it always made me smile. So when I heard this song that evening - an idea of a girl dressed up like Axl Rose and singing came up to my mind. And then when making some preliminary drafts - I remembered another Guns n' Roses video - "November Rain", in which Axl was marrying Stephanie Seymour. He was dressed in beautiful 18th century like suit with gold embroidery, and Stephanie's wedding dress was designed by Carmela Sutera.
So now I got the whole picture in my mind.
And here again we have another dressed up party! :)

Here is the sketch if you're curious: [link]
As you may see in vector I decided to put the girl closer to the guy, to strengthen the feeling of his annoyance. :D

Vector done in Adobe Illustrator CS 4,
sketch - Photoshop

Wow! A DD!!! I didn't expect that at all! :dance:

love it! but I think the man's legs are a bit feminine. They're sort of hairless and they're sort of shaped like women's legs too.

I think one of the reasons they may appear to be "shaped like women's legs" is because he's wearing heels. Heels can do that to legs, lol. :D

We had a day when after school the teachers play basketball aganist each other... Needless to say he wore shorts, and he's legs were shaved. That really didn't help the gay rumors....

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA, Did that completely screw any respect he had from the kids? Oh it would be horrifying to be him.

He didn't really care, he was kind of a bad-ass. He also gave us advice on matching our shoes to our belts or our purses. 'Cause you know, who wants to wear black shoes with a brown belt? Eww, somebody call the fasion police.

AND we also found out he watches the Jersey Shore.

And the thing that makes me laugh my ass off? He's married with two step-kids and just had a baby. (A girl BTW)
