Maleficent - Art Nouveau by Paola-Tosca Maleficent - Art Nouveau by Paola-Tosca
Whew, my first attempt at Art Nouveau! I've always loved that artistic style so much, so I really had to give it a shot as soon as I saw this contest: alexandrasalas.deviantart.com/… by CR-FanArt-Contests  :) I did a bunch of research on it, but snapcrackers, is Art Nouveau one tricky style!

 Front should have thicker lines than the back, the main character seems to be the most shaded,
and then add tons of ornaments... :faint:

Plus, I have to mention, I loved the teasers of the Maleficent movie, and I really wanted to give her a shot drawing-wise.
So, combine the two and this is the result :3 

EDIT: Lineart now available too, free to use in any way! :)

Mixed opinion, actually! I loved the characters, the graphics, the designs, but the storytelling had something that was a bit off, I'm not sure what. What do you think about this movie? :)

That's very true! We all have some good and some evil inside of us, I think. I definitely understand why she did what she did, so that's a plus to the storytelling! :)

I always wondered what defined the style...what it's 'rules' were. 

I like the tribute!  I love all the details and really love how much your art has grown over time!  She's gorgeous!

I think I forgot to mention that the large subjects of art nouveau are nature and women, but mostly inspired by nature. You should give this style a shot too :D :hug:

Was there anywhere specific you found as a good source on the research of the style or just generally looking it up?

I mainly used this tutorial, even though it's meant for photomanipulation I think it explains the basics very well: cassiopeiaart.deviantart.com/a…
Otherwise I downloaded tons of Mucha's artworks, I'm actually considering to do a master study on one of his works too to get a better grip on it :) 

I just went freestyle with the colors though xD (I think they're originally supposed to be much more desaturated! :O)
