Autumn - Polyhymnia by XIXDeviant Autumn - Polyhymnia by XIXDeviant
The Muse Polyhymnia as a personification of the autumnal season.
This artwork was inspired by two beautiful works of Alfons Mucha:
-La Trappistine (1897)
-The Passion of Christ (1904)

I like the thistles and spikes theme, you recreated well the style of Mucha but with your own composition.
I just find her eyes a bit too sad, but that's how they are in "La Trappistine" so I understand your choice.

You do the basic colours on computer, and then, you print it and make the details with crayons ? :)

Thank you. Yes, the sad eyes are taken directly from “The Trappistine”.

I’m not very skilled with digital coloring, so I prefer to do the flat/basic colours on computer, and then make the shadows and details by hand, with the crayons. Unfortunately, the results are often weird. :|

Congratulations for your artworks, you’re really good at digital coloring :)
