The New Solo Arcanist by Asraniel The New Solo Arcanist by Asraniel
Prints available here

Gracing the spring cover of the small Vaults publication known as The New Solo Arcanist, Saldramina ro'Talib hails from the realm of Cassel and is a promising new spellbinder attached to the Lapis Path organization. Her recent efforts in unsealing the Keep during the Builders' Tome fiasco have earned her an enduring place in arcanist history.

For #artnouveau's contest. Originally my aim was to semi-spoof, mostly mimic Mucha's style and work, see if I could fool anyone into thinking it was one of his pieces since that tends to be an amusing reaction. But I decided I liked these colors too much XD Anyway this was done referencing his West End Review coverpiece. I wanted to use a piece not seen as often, and I think I know why this isn't: palm fronds are the bloody devil.

12/9/10: It actually looks halfway vintage printed and hung on the wall. *victory handclasp*

This is a great piece of work, it does'nt look digital which is a great achievement as it can be hard to get a stisfactory finish with digital as the colours can be really deep and flat, but these are perfect! And I sympathise on the palm frond thing, I did one with olive trees in it and I nearly lost my mind doing all the leaves!

It's very true to the era, down to the color styles.
