(and yes, more floating heads! you can't escape from the floating heads. there's another one coming this week!)


This is a warm up illustration I did yesterday after spending the last weeks studying life-thingies instead of studying art-thingies. Veeeeery influenced by Beardsley, whose illustrations I love :heart: Was going to keep it black and white, but photoshop tempted me.

can't really resist temptation ^^U

edit: for whoever wants to check it in black and white, it's up at the blog [link]

I definitely called the Beardsley inspiration! Did you read Wilde's play?

Dear God this beautifully done.

I especially love that the head has one of those old style halos. I loves those to death.

Niiicccee. I definitely see the Beardsley influence- I glad you gave into the temptation to add some color, though. It has a weirdly retro feel despite the dark matter and turn of the century influences.
