So, I think we can all agree that the highlight of this week's episode was the amazing lip sync performance by Dida Ritz. Right?
Otherwise, this week was rather rough--the infomercial challenge was kind of painful, as was seeing some of my favorite queens rip into each other. However, I loved most of the runway looks, even if the theme of "platinum and gold" was pretty tame. But rather than draw all my favorites, I wanted to take more time with just a few illustrations--last week, my art got a little too cartoony, so I wanted to consciously utilize a bit more of the flat, stylized aesthetic that I developed last year.
I loved Sharon Needles' sleek pompadour look, though I simplified it quite a bit for this piece. I tried to get her "popping the collar" gesture down, but it proved tricky.
It was sad to see The Princess leave--I really love both her edgy style and sweet personality, but I guess in the Drag Race, good girls finish last?
