    Mucha Site

    Mucha deserves his own thread right? I know there are some fans here so maybe this is new for some of you. Too bad the repros are not larger. I found this through Lines and Colors.

    Well I can admit to being a fan of Mucha's work and that style in general as it's very easy to do but having said that the style does require a fair amount of measuring as far as the boarders are concerned.

    WHAT. Pulling off something Mucha-esque, maybe, but you can't pull off a "real Mucha" without oodles of skill. Seriously, look at that design and detail! And the linework! *drool*

    Anyway, thanks for that link! Mucha is one of my big favourites and I'm always happy to find sites with images

    Wow, you're so right.

    Let's see you do this then since it's so easy to do

    I think Kjest just meant to say that the line arty part is easy to do and is easy to emulate rather than saying that she can actually paint like Mucha...calm down guys lest you wake the ego monster...

    Except...

    1. That wasn't Kjest that said that. It was a person with 2 posts. One of the posts said they won't post art to the site as their introduction post.

    2. I'd say back it up with actual art if it's so easy, but see reason 1.

    No its not easy. You're confusing your ignorance and lack of understanding with ability you clearly don't have or you wouldn't say stuff like that.

    I think he may have been shorthanding your name, which was what I was doing.

    Mucha!

    Hey, didn't he do a bunch of advertisements and such? Like, for Sarah Bernhardt? I love the pictures of her as "The Lady from Camille" and "Hamlet". the Hamlet one is my favorite, because it's so cool and dashing, being pretty and elaborate while still retaining a darker mood, which I don't see often in Art Noveu.
