Kinouveau by Lovely-Whimsy Kinouveau by Lovely-Whimsy
And the hypothetical question of the day is: Why, god why? What was I thinking?

I decided to have another whack at art nouveau style art, and also decided to experiment with textures. I've been working on this for about two weeks. My eyeballs are melting, but I think it was worth it.

Next time, I would like to draw my own background--but
I got kind of burnt out so I dove into DevArt's rich collection of fine stock photos. ilu stock providers <3


I am having an "elaborate. fan art" phase.

This is Kin, a yuan-ti from the comic 'Goblins: Life Through Their Eyes' by Tarol Hunt. It can be found here: [link]

Download for a closer look at the brain-melting details.

Textures courtesy of cgtextures.com and CS4 default textures.

Though I hope the original artist doesn't mind that I added the parts on either side and the labyrinth shape behind her head <3

Thanks! Glad you like the scales--I had to do them individually to get the look I wanted o.o but it was totally worth it!

I saw this on the Goblins forum. Good picture. I especially like the lighting and shades those tiny scales.

This is beautiful, and the level of detail is ridiculous.. the thumbnail didn't do it justice at all. :)
