Lili Nouveau

Lili, from the movie Legend.

Another classic that I loved for no good reason. The movie itself makes no sense, but it's pretty. So I'm okay with this. Lili was a general, spoiled, whatever princess, up until she suddenly became the desire of Darkness. who turned her into something way more interesting, imo.

Hence having to do twice as much work for this picture, but worth it for Dark!Lili. (its too bad you can't see all of her, actually, i might make a reverse version)

silly magic, horses with horns pretending to be unicorns, a weirdly innocent looking tom cruise. me gusta.

Also, Darkness was my first guilty, fictional character crush. which just screams therapy, but srsly. Tim Curry. With horns ♥

"The movie itself makes no sense, but it's pretty" <-- literally my relationship with Legend lol, except add "and it has fairies." XDD Beautiful art!

I found your work from a post by the Pop Theory Store on Facebook.  This is one of my favourites (The Last Unicorn is another).  I love how you included both views of Lili in this.   It's truly spectacular.

perfect interpretation of dark/light Lili.
Your thoughts on the movie are similar to mine... and who doesn´t have a villain crush on Darkness?

First off, this is lovely. I adore Art Nouveau, and you caught the style and essence of the film perfectly. Secondly, babygirl, y'all don't need no therapy, cus' I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. Tim Curry, with horns, playing a 13 foot sexual demon. Therapy please!!!

*high fives* so far, it would seem we have a similar taste in older movies. :D Legend was another favorite when I was growing up.

I love how you integrate key moments from the movies into the top of each card--and the tarot style... I think I'm going to have to watch your work from now on. :D
