I used a lovely purple polish (Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Urgent Orchid) for the background and did all of the rest of the artwork with acrylic paints.
Here is the poster that hung on my bedroom door when I was an early teen. I kept it there for years because I loved it so! I found this image online here: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Muppet_posters
Here is the beginning of Piggy. I had the most difficulty with shading.
Here's Piggy pretty much done. She's so fierce looking! Hiyyyyyaah!
I added her purple silk gloved hand in a karate chop move. The white accent around the glove gives it fun motion and drama.
