Primetime WIP

I've decided to get back to work getting better at animation and illustrations this year. I'm working on an animation project as well as this one.

I'm a really big fan of Janelle Monae, I went to see her in concert late last year and it was a blast. Her music inspires me so much, and I find myself drawing little pictures of her in my sketch book sometimes. This project started as doodles I drew while watching her video for "Primetime"

Here's the sketches:

I'm going to color this work with a few new things that I've been trying to learn. I think it will turn out great.
