For years it has been my dream to incorporate art nouveau style (I am a huge fan of Mucha - but then again who isn't? XD) into one of my projects. Since Lily's story takes place ~100 years ago, this was the perfect chance to finally do more in that style.
I designed her dress and art directed the piece as I had my beloved Zipavika do the lines. I re-inked the piece digitally and then applied the colors plus textures.
The background texture is inspired by a public domain art nouveau picture.
PS: Yep that's a military saber... one officers would own. ;)
