the return of the nudy, thus the return of mature tag.

(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.
