Work-A-Week Project 3 by silvertales Work-A-Week Project 3 by silvertales
View halloo, all!



This really needs a name... actually, aside from last week's piece, I'm pretty crap with names, so any and all suggestions will be welcome! :)

Had rather a lot of fun with this piece, and after tweaking some of the saturation of the marker original in Photoshop, quite happy with the piece on the whole, particularly the background, which doesn't happen often!

Original: (A4, ink and marker): $400
Print: (8.5x11" giclee): $12

You're welcome. I don't know why they don't stress his work more in school. I have only recently found out who he was, though I've seen his art as a kid and loved it even then.
All the best.

You know, I don't know! Mucha is such an influential artist on more recent generations, and his work is so influential amongst illustrators. He really did bring the whole movement to life, and I've been a fan for a long time. :)

I did not hear about him till I was 23, but I've seen his art as a kid. Your work really shows the influence , and I love it. I'm thinking of illustrating my future book cover using Mucha's influence. Maybe I'll get to it by the end of the month (if another commission does not overtake my plans). M

Perhaps "The sport of kings" or "Miss Flaveshum's First Hunting Party" or something like that. Anyways, so pretty!

Thank you so much!

Yay! You totally should, both the Work-A-Week and the Sketch-A-Day project have been great ways to jump-start my productivity and get over the artist block that sometimes sets it. :)

Wow, fantastic! The shading on the folds of her dress especially, so gorgeously painted *__*
I agree, the background is terrific. Really like how it's silhouetted, makes the viewer focus on the subject :)

My first thought when seeing this: HOLY SHIT THAT'S AWESOME

But profanity aside, wow, amazing work as always, especially with the textures you used in the foreground and the depth and soft colors in the background! Wow. Wow.

LOL!
Profanity in an immediate reaction can be good. :)

Not bad for totally pulling the color scheme and background elements totally out of nowhere and on the fly.... O.o talk about nerve-wracking.
