This is the second in a series I’m doing where I’m combining princesses with the seasons pieces by Alphonse Mucha. I’m trying to tweak the outfits a bit to make them more my own/to fit the art nouveau genre a bit better. In addition, I’m trying to make them more realistic but still recognizable.
You can get this on Society6, Teepublic and Redbubble—it’s available on a host of goodies: shirts, prints, etc. Signed prints coming to my Etsy store soon!
P.S. I chose this outfit because it fits the art nouveau style better, and, frankly, I would not have enjoyed drawing her military one. So I didn’t.
If I start drawing things I don’t enjoy to please others, then it becomes just a job, and that’s the last thing I want to happen. Everyone wants me to draw everything exactly how they want it—and then they feel entitled to criticize me for not capturing their vision—but it would be impossible to capture everyone’s’! So, I draw what I like and that’s really all I can do. :)
Trimed my bangs and put on some makeup.
Hey Mel my fellow creative type. Stumbled scross your tumblr and thought you seemed pretty cool and noticed your vapey pic...what is your showpiece trick? Hope you're doin ok.
I was doing smoke rings, but all the pictures with the rings in it had my face looking weird. Haha
