Winter is one of my prefered seasons : everything is grey and blue, cold, dead by snow, and you feel your fingers & feet freezed ! But it seems this woman in her bare dress doesn't even feel the cold, she's lost in her thoughts in a forest covered by snow and as she doesn't move the snow slowly piles up on herself. Winter is just present for few months, but it's like if it's an eternity.


This is the first pic of the Four season serie i'm doing. Next one will be autumn.

Text is in french sorry but as in Art Nouveau art there's always french in texts I wanted to keep this feeling.
The beautiful girl is `lockstock and thank you for her fabulous stock photos who gave me inspiration to do this !

I hope you like !

Do you ever undertake commissions? I'm looking for someone to create some very specific cover art for my novels. If you might be interested could you please email me on chloegreene777@outlook.com please. I've tried to open a deviant art account, but when I try to verify the account it won't recognise my password!

Is there a reason she is turned away from the veiwer? It seems odd she is the only one in this series that we can't see the face of.

It's deliberate, if you see the whole serie in the single pic, it's like she turns each season. lol

how very "Alphonse Mucha-ish" of you. I adore his style and I've never really seen anyone duplicate it this well. I love all three of the peices in your series. bravo.

Good work, detailed and clean. Mind goes to the past and obviously to Mucha, and it comes back to present time for the use of CG.
I found quite a flaw in the snow crystals on the frame, they're quite ugly and naive, especially confronted with the main figure! :ashamed:

:iconzhaana:
Zhaana Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yup didn't want them to be too much detailed, so the figure could catch more the eye ^^
thank you

NavarreTheWeaver Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2006
I agree with that, but they appear so much different in style than the whole image; I find them quite distracting from the main figure!
