Mucha: Topaz by Kagira Mucha: Topaz by Kagira
Gift for my Mum for Mothers' Day. :heart:

This is from the same series (The Four Jewels, by Alphonse Mucha) as this one: [link]

This drove me doolally. :faint: That damn background took me hours. @_@; But, for once, I'm completely satisfied with how it turned out. :)

One thing I noticed is my colouring's improved since the last one...Seems I'm a little braver with the pencil crayons nowadays. :lmao:


:rose: Other Mucha Pieces:-

Amethyst: [link]
Topaz: [link]
Emerald: [link]
Ruby: [link]
Tete Byzantine (inspired by): [link] :rose:



Original art is by Alphonse Mucha
This version is by Linzie G.

this is really good, how long did it take you to draw the outline and colour it in?

Thank you very much! ^_^ As for the time it took, I honestly don't know. Anything between 4 and 10 hours overall, I'd guess? I don't tend to keep track of the time, but I usually work on something like this over the course of a couple of days - with looots of breaks. :)

Best present ever.
It must have been tedious doing this all with pencil. In fact, so far this has been the first one I've seen completely done in colored pencil I think on DA >>;

If you don't mind, I may fave all of those.
I'm doing an art project and want to do it in a Mucha/ art noveau style. I'm looking for ANY reference, professional or otherwise.

I don't mind at all, in fact I'd be honoured. :aww:
I'm always glad to see people keeping the Noveau style alive because it really is beautiful. :)

Ahh, don't worry 'tis ok. :giggle: I don't have any helpful tips, really. ^^; Just try and be patient when you do Mucha-style backgrounds, 'cause they drive you crazy after a while. :lmao: Plus, I always like to start with the background first so I can get the positioning of the figure correct. :)
Sorry for the delayed reply!
