Nouveau Wonder Woman by Forty-Fathoms Nouveau Wonder Woman by Forty-Fathoms
"Art Nouveau is an international philosophy and style of art, architecture and applied art -- especially the decorative arts -- that was most popular during 1890-1910. Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils and lighting, as well as the fine arts. Although Art Nouveau was replaced by 20th-century Modernist styles, it is now considered as an important transition between the eclectic historic revival styles o the 19th-century and Modernism."

 So. This is my very first nouveau painting and I'm moderately pleased with it. The original sketch of Wondy was done by ~paulobarrios and I really elaborated on the picture and it's possibility with the nouveau style. I've been fan of nouveau for awhile now but I never really knew too much about it and after a little reading and research on how to do such work, this is what came out. I know it's not perfect but I think I did a good job considering it was my first time doing the nouveau style. Plus, with Paulo's sketch of Wondy and a classic look, I figured it'd be a good idea to go back and try something new. Anyways, feedback and comments are always welcome! :heart:

OH MY GOSH there are no words to describe how much I love this!!! Art Nouveau doesn't get near enough attention or use, in my opinion. This is fabulously wonderful. Very polished and very, very stylish! <3
