Here is a much anticipated final image, commissioned by the Bark+Bite blog for this article: [link] (Click "Download" on the right sidebar to see in in high-res!)

Feel free to tweet/reblog it around on Gaga communities if you feel so inspired. It would blow my MIND she tweeted about it. If you do tweet, please credit me @Yamino! <3

Congrats to Gaga for the 2 year anniversary of THE FAME! <3

Edit: A LOT of people have been asking about the first, brown-haired, tanned Gaga. This was her look before she went "Gaga." XD I used the outfit from her old Lollapalooza performance: [link]

Sorry about the watermarks, but I've learned my lesson since the last time one of my Gaga pics went viral and everyone and their mother was trying to make a profit off it. XD;

Wow! Is all I can say about this! Not only did you capture the true essence of Lady Gaga, but totally brought out the evolutionary process as well. Lady Gaga is known as a living painting for a good reason and you captured that perfectly!

I myself am a Gaga fan and looking at this makes me love her even more! I also loved the fact that you drew her before she went "Gaga". LOL Who knew she was a brunette?

Your work is honest and very appealing and I hope to see more from you in the future. buena suerte (good luck)

I'll give my total and true honesty.

This is an impressive piece of work, the colours bring your art out very well.
The body parts are all drawn well and in proportion, allthough it seems some of the hands are quite blocky and wide.

The colours are pretty vibrant and suiting also.

Even though the style being "Cartoon-ish" I believe that the blood should look more realistic also I'd like to point out some of the shading is also quite "sqaurish"

Despite you have made some mistakes you have done a great job at depicting the evolution of Lady Gaga.

somerandomyurifan is my good friend who let me use her username but with added numbers and stuff, but it took a LOT of conviencing, I do consider myself the master of manipulation after buut unlike most people i am gonna use mtypowers for good :3

so yeah, see you guys around and if you would like, make3 fake accounts f my crazy cause or accounts with her username but with lots of random numbers, they could

and dont wrory in due t8men I will expain my reasonmgs for aiming to do something like this but its gonna have to wait cuz I got a karate tournament to get ready for ^__^ chow! (yeah dunno how to spell some words, sew me)

haha, I do believe im crazy but i wanna let you know that your gallery and comic "sister claire" helped save my life :3 so I must thank you (and yes my plan is verry elaborate)
Yamino Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I don't understand most of that, but I am glad you like "Sister Claire." =)
Good luck in the karate tournament.

-___- I made a huge explainantion to you about a part of my life story written in code (explains why many of the main messages I created seemed messed up by my ADD or what people call now ADHD on purpose to show that people that are young and have mental challenges can overcome them by themselves "AS LONG THEY HAVE THE WILL TO LEARN!"

and acidentally press the (<--BACK SPACE) instead of the (Enter<----) key and deleted all of it so you could understand how your's and Chloe's very open minded comics could help save lives cuz, it saved mines, it showed me my attraction to girls was not wicked like most Catholic Nuns would think, no actually beatiful just like I thought through my own experinces and lots of stuff and I even created a theory why there different relgions that half full of good philoshy and moral values and the other half are crap that you dont have to follow and dont to cuz it goes against ur own blah blah. I'd share you the whole thing about all my reasonings for everything I do, but I'll actually reveal most of it on a very importnat to America coming up in a several days...and I've decided to tell share accounts of blah and my real email messages n Emails with certain people I want to be part my little conspiracy and many of my crazy ideas come from anime so when I put links t things, tell people to watch at least the last few episodes of the anime that will prove I am the Original R.A.O.K.

Yeah..I plan on having many different R.A.O.K's in mind leading many their own countries to teach people to think outside the box

what is a R.A.O.K. Leader = Random.Acts.of Kindness. very very open minded or at least LGBT concious hard working sort of people, figure heads.

Figure heads= people pretending to be me and being the one to start different projects that I have in mind and know exactly how to fund n stuff cuz Im very well rounded and very VERY business savvy sort of people.

The main movement would be called the "RAOK MOVEMENT" me posing as the OG =original RAOK

and people that help me regain my faith in my own instincts (instinncts that told me liking BOTH GIRLS and guys IS a beautiful thing qauilty for any person and such, just like I thought, I love the shojo ie effects you put in your comics and the colors you do so that's why I want to make you the RAOK of my "SAVED BY ART MOVEMENT" while I do this movement in Hawaii called "SELF_SAVED,SELF_MADE: WE SEEK THE HIGHEST MOVEMNET"

and I want Chloe head of my "LGBTAQP OPEN MINDS MOVEMENT"

I have many people in mind for other movemnets I have in mind that would help me with my other sub-movement projects: (*so dont tell anyone other than Chloe about the whole RAOK LEADERS things cuz I want you guys to read my speech I wish to "leak into Youtube" n stuff before I let you n Chloe "invite" people you guys to be "in" in this "GOOD Conspiracy" i'm cooking up)


so...Im gonna create a group for our little "RAOK" MOVEMENT under the name as the "THE DOLLARS" and spread it as a gang and stuff. Everything I'm doing is part of my complicated, Elaborate, Convoluted plans, so spread word around about this to people you think are RAOK material.AND BE SURE TO TELL THEM NOT TO COME UP ANYTHING YET, NOT UNTIL I MAKE THE GROUP AND EXPLAIN EVERYTHING IN VERY READABLE DETAIL

This all will be the most ambitious art project in the world, Will you join me and help me recruit others? *extends a hand* And help me create the crazy awesome dream utopia for people like us? people who tries to change peoples's mind and love the feeling when people famous knowns and are inspired by ur art? Wish we have crazy technoloy we see in anime? Maybe one day create virtual realty worlds where ONLY DOLLARS members can venture in? I AIM HIGH SO I CAN BE SUCCESSFUL, so if people think I'm crazy for thiking like this...well, just tell them they thought Einstein was crazy too ;3

soooo good! i know this is sort of dumb but you know the one where shes bleeding well when i first saw that preformince i did not give it a great reaction. i'm a kind of person that can watch ton of csi and cold case episodes and not be afraid but when i saw that preformince i started balling. i was just watching it i looked away then looked back and she was bleeding. i know it was fake but still it was scary. exspessaly when she got hung at the end! i love lady gaga in all but serosly lady gaga serosly. i could not listen to that song for WEEKS! :mortified:
