I love these popular science covers! It'd make an interesting discussion to come up with exactly how they 'did' that style:

  • Strong, saturated colors.
  • Very clearly delineated forms.
  • Geometric shapes.
  • 'Standardized' male/female faces/bodies.
  • Use of classical composition formats.
If anyone comes up with more to add to the 'formula', post them!

P.S-- I love the 'birth of the pearl' painting, that'd look lovely on my wall.

I like the art of
William Adolphe Bouguereau

Maybe Chris is busy preparing for her new workshop? We still miss you! I still love this thread, and I'm still building myself up to colouring that Mucha piece. In the meanwhile, can I tempt you to return with some more GAoI style wips?

A fantasy take on the classic male, and trying my hand at the Arrow Collars black out style mixed with a little swirly Mucha. Just gotta figure this whole colour malarky out now. And possibly Painter. That program still scares me.
