"Alfons Maria Mucha (Ivančice, 24 July 1860 – Prague, 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs."
Wow, I didn’t expect that amount of kind words and sympathy regarding last night’s incident. I am truly touched. Thank you so much. And thank you for conveying so much hugs to my mom and dad XD My mom came in to my room this morning and said something funny - she said she had an insult she wanted to say to that guy but she held it in so hard her stomach hurts the whole night.
Anyways I spent last night (and this morning) finishing this up (nothing better than to spend pent-up anger on artwork!) - my rendition of the new Captain Marvel costume re-imagined as a dress. The new Captain Marvel’s hairstyle is really a bit hard for me to pin down exactly. Is it short? pinned back? Terry Dodson styled it differently from Dexter Soy’s interpretation and I can’t decide between the two so I just sorta make it up as I go along. Thanks for looking!
Finally done with this! I did a dress design based on Phoenix’s costume (originally designed by Dave Cockrum) - I imagine in real life the phoenix logo on her chest will be embroidered in beads, as do the gold details on her sleeve.
This kinda took me forever. I’m terrible with backgrounds - I tend to make them very cluttered, so it took quite a while to clean everything up so she will be the focus of the artwork.
Some of my favorite Alphonse Mucha pieces. I need to go to his museum one day.
