RH: Strange Fruit by Tyshea RH: Strange Fruit by Tyshea
An assignment I did for a class, where I had to copy the Art Nouveau style o3o

This is my character Dominique, who some of you may or may not recognize from this picture: Details in the Fabric
The story is called "Romaine Hearts" and is still in the works <3

She's been through some editing due to baggage, but I still love her.


Thanks for any and all faves/comments! :heart:

Beautiful. :iconlazypoolplz: By the way, the title reminded me of a thoughtful poem called Strange Fruit.

I'm unsure as to if there's supposed to be that reference however :icontinoplz:

It's a direct reference to that poem, actually! The racial and social aspect isn't there, but it's relevant to the character
Thank you!

I was just looking back through all of your work, just for fun. I have to say this is quite easily one of my favorite pieces by you. The textures and the detail(especially in the face) are astounding.

I've been learning how to "critque" art from school (Yay RAP program! :la:)

The creepy feeling came from the swirls...kinda like how Alice in Wonderland is being made into a movie by Tim Burton? Like the Mad Hatter creepy...ish ^^;

This is lovely :) I like the mix of shaded and block colours.
The shading on the face and the scarf reminds me a lot of Mucha, but that could just be because I've been studying him recently. Either way, it is very Art Nouveau
