Cassiopeia -- Fullview by nove Cassiopeia -- Fullview by nove
Beautiful queen of the waters
Borne by celestial mother
Sublime astrological divinity

Punished for vain intervention
She sacrificed godlike ascension
Stripped of Olympian serenity

"Solar winds
will carry me far away from here
take me to my journey's end"

Hear a goddess cry
a silent hopeless sigh
from a sanctum divine

From the stars she still whispers
Envied among all her sisters
Entwined in a kingdom of infinity

The tears of an astral descension
derived from her moonlit dimension
A star that is fading to obscurity

"So, my wings
will carry me far away from home
bring me to my final rest"

Photoshop probably 50+ hours on and off

I believe I had what Alice and I used to call an art leap finally in two years. Heavily influenced by the fact Anderson told me to look into Alphonse Mucha. I loved his style, it was simplistic in color and detailed in design.

Meet Cassiopeia.

This is simply amazing Nove.

I love the use of textures. The subtle areas around her face and continuing in the skin are fabulous. Her ringlets have a heavy quality to them, which compliment her outfit and the lack of weight that tapers out towards her feet. The sharpness of her elbows and knees is pretty sweet too. God, the texture and halftones. I can't get over those...

There are two things that look a little odd though. The area in the background around the record is just so pixelated, but in a way it works since the pixelation continues throughout the background. And her chest seems to be almost too high on the torso. Maybe that's just the way the clothing is pushing her breasts up? Yeah, that could be it :P

Anyway, I love this piece. And as for the long ass mutherfucking comment...I like critiques and saying more than "Oh shit, this is fab". I GIVE YAH THE TRUTH.

XD to be honest, I hate boobs so it could be either of those, too high or being pressed up :] when I think corset I think old england haha. but yeah the pixelation bothered me too at first but it does stay a constant :o so it was intentional <3

thanks for the big compliment stock pile though <3 supreme awesome pix darling.

pretty composition, and use of colors.

The anatomy however is sort of off. Her left shoulder is disproportionate and her neck is growing more kin to her right shoulder side since the left one is so long. Her boobs are too high too. But those are just minor problems, its' a wonderful piece!

I love the repetition of the circular shape in this. Very nice colors used, too, the browns blues and greens are just beautiful. The only thing bothering me about this is that her boobs seem too small/high up on her chest and her arms a tad too long/large, but I need to work on the arms of my drawings anyway, so what do I know. XD but continuing on, I also really adore her legs and skirt/boots.

That's awesome. I actually just did a presentation for my design class on Mucha. Something about beautiful women and curvilinear lines just go together so well.

The positioning on the girl is a little odd though, almost as though she has no armpit.

Haha Mucha is very interesting.
As far as what you said, eh I never draw arms up. And didn't want to exactly reference myself for it at the time. To me, it looks decent and convincing.

I'll work on it though. :]

I could put your name on it, if you'd like.
I might just save it in my pictures and use it like that, or something.

You so totally should use her in a story.

I have a tendency to design a character once and never use them again...
But then I draw this same person over and over and over without even realizing it. I gotta go name them!
