Nostalgy by dahlig Nostalgy by dahlig
Submitted late, since I couldn't think of a right title for this piece ;) It was done for ImagineFX Issue 78:
[link]

The point was to create an Art Nouveau/Alphonse Mucha stylization but with a modern twist. The task proved much harder than I initially thought... Also, as I don't usually work with line art, inking was a killer.

Video + workshop are inside the mag. :)

I'm a big fan of Mucha stylizations and this totally nails that, the use of varied line thicknesses provides great depth indication.  It's easy to see why you are a professional!  Great work!

I'm very impressed with the way that Art Nouveau and your usual style come together in this piece. The touches of nature and the outlining embody the spirit of Art Nouveau while your talent with faces and cloth add depth with an original twist. I know that some find that combination a bit jarring, but for myself I like the contrast - it reminds me metaphorically of the Escher pieces where a sketch gradually becomes a seemingly three dimensional image lifting from the page.

I just love this. And I am even thinking of buying a HAED design of this piece for cross stitching :)
