"Don't be offended by my frank analysis,
Think of it as personality dialysis.
Now that I've chosen to become a pal,
A sister, an advisor,
There's nobody wiser,
Not when it comes to popular.
I know about popular,
And with an assist from me,
You'll be who you'll be,
Instead of dreary who you were--are!
There's nothing that can stop you
From becoming popu-ler. Lar!
La, la, la, la,
We're gonna make you popular.
And though you protest,
I know clandestinely,
You're gonna grin and bear it,
Your newfound popularity.
La, la, la, la,
You'll be popular,
Just not quite as popular as me!"
~"Popular" from Wicked the Musical
This has to be my all-time favorite scene in the show. Galinda is so bouncy and bubbly and brazenly ridiculous that you can't help but laugh your head off. And it's so funny how Elphaba just has to sit there and endure the antics the entire time, like ".......what are you doing??
I got the general pose from a video of Katie Rose Clarke performing this with Carmen Cusack (I love them!), and it was so entertaining because KRC's Galinda is so adorkable and spastic, but Carmen was utterly deadpan for almost the entire scene. I don't know how she didn't laugh.
Anyway, I'll stop ranting about how much I love this scene/song.
I decided since my last picture that Elphaba's face didn't have enough character the way I drew her, so I changed her quite a bit, mostly her nose and her face-shape. I think she looks better, but I'll leave that for all of you to decide. And drawing Galinda's "popular" dress makes me dizzy...............@_@......soooo much pink!!

(Yes, I really do have to say that I'm not a gelphie fan on every picture of mine that has been submitted to a gelphie group by request of the group itself. I'm that anti-gelphie.)
