Jo Calderone by Maleijn Jo Calderone by Maleijn
This is Lady Gaga as her male alter ego Jo Calderone, as seen on promo pictures for her new single Yo and I.

It's my first attempt at a 3 layered portrait, I thougt it was really hard to do! But I'm going to try to improve in this since I really enjoyed doing it.

Reference picture used.

Very darkish  crescendo of full on black colors. With a monochromatic scheme I love it marvilloso.

Very nice! I like that you kept it simple and didn't overdo the detail. It makes it very moody, like a Frank Miller ink drawing from Sin City! Maybe an evening cityscape background (some simple buildings with the windows cut out) would help the mood. Don't let the photo dictate the limit of your imagination!

thank you for commenting and the suggestion about the background! Often I'm to concentrated with my reference that I don't think of adding details, that's something I have to learn :D It's easier to make changes when I cut my own design!

Yeah, I know what you mean. Same here. I think playing around in Photoshop helped me break that habit. Sometimes you take a photo and the subject is perfect, but you have telephone poles or something unusual or unattractive in the background, so now I just clone stuff out or redraw it how I want it to be and only keep what I like.
