Anime Nouveau - Midna by kathemo Anime Nouveau - Midna by kathemo
[edit] 2012.08.21 - Due to people reposting, I've added a watermark. XD;;

Midna from Legend of Zelda's Twilight Princess

Alphonse Mucha is one of my favorite all-time artists and art nouveau has a close place in my heart. This isn't quite there but I'm going to call it anime nouveau, haha.

Just to let ya know, this picture caught ZeldaInformer's attention and uploaded it on the FaceBook, with a link addressing to this page.

At least you did add the watermark to preventing it from being "stolen", like 2 years ago.

The colors on this one are scrumptious!  Also, you did a great job on giving Midna depth.  I've noticed sometimes profiles can seem flat, especially torsos, but you definitely didn't fall into that trap here!  She looks great.  Fabulous work!

It's relatively easy, just time-consuming. Art nouveau is all about flowing lines and intricate details, which is why this is more 'anime' nouveau because they're nowhere near as complex as the real thing. XD

When I saw these at the art auction I nearly died. I wanted it sooo badly! And then I saw it for sale at the AA table and died again cause I didn't have any more money.
I LOVE Midna, she is actually my next cosplay, and I really wanted to own this. ;__; It's amazing and beautiful.

Don't die! (haha) Well, I'll be at Otakon and possibly Nekocon this year but I'll definitely be at AZ next year so you can pick one up then! ;D

I'll just have my friend snag one since he's going to all three.

This is lovely! The only weird thing about it, is I think the hood s a smidgen large. Other than that, I love it..and I want one :D

:iconkathemo:
kathemo Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I'd like to say I drafted out everything but really I liked the shape of the larger hood. Something about the negative space right at the slopes of the top and back appeals to me. It's nothing but a personal aesthetic, haha.

And thank you!
