thank you for your explanation and request.
Of course, i keep my pics in scans of higher resolution,
i just post them on my website in small, easy to come up resolution, cause i hate slow websites.

So here you are - a higher resolution version. Just click the following thumbnail:

Now you're talking, Milena S !.... We can see 'all' the details.

A lot of work in there... and it must have taken you ages to achieve the texture of the hair and, especially, the shadow on each and every little pieces of what takes place as a "decorative skirt". That piece of garment alone must have taken hours and hours of patient work.

Congratulation, Milena S.

Dear Yoda, thank you much for your nice compliments!
In fact, i've done the fur and hair very quickly,
but you're right, the mesh skirt took long,
and the shadow of the folds in the pants, too.
For the background, i needed a bit research of ancient japanese statues.
(It's a bit mixture between fashion and fantasy art,
so a bit "sitting between two chairs";-)

Roots! by MilenaFri May 28, 2010 3:16 pm
Here's a REAL classic:
Paul Iribe (1883-1935, France, worked with e.g. Coco Chanel)

I like the art-deco-style with slightly asian notes and the satiric undertone (watch the toad!)

French Retro Comic by MilenaFri Jun 04, 2010 7:40 am
So as i showed you art deco fashion illustration from the beginning of the 20th century,
here's an actuell running comic series from one of the best french comic artists: Jacques Tardi
It's playing from 1911-1923 and was published 1976-2008:
Les Aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Aventures_extraordinaires_d%27Ad%C3%A8le_Blanc-Sec
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Aventures_extraordinaires_d%27Ad%C3%A8le_Blanc-Sec
Tardi transports the spirit of that 1910th in the story, the drawing, the colours, the fashion and the architecture.
He really made a new art-deco-comic:

Interessting similarity between Lauras hat and my jacket, hm?
The jacket was inspired by a chanel design.



wow Milena, that is a great picture. Love the details. My daughter is going into fine arts, maybe the two of you can compare art some time haha Though I think you're a little more advanced than she is, she's just getting started. Very well done!!

Thank you by MilenaSat Jun 05, 2010 1:51 am
Dear Sabrina,

many thanks for your kind words!
I'm a bit lost for words, reading, that you call my style "advanced" and put it in the same sentence as "fine art".
It is, because, all fine artists or exhibitors or publishers of fine art called my pictures "illustration" not "fine art".
They ment it in a negative way - In my opinion "fine art" is not defined as "not beeing illustraion".
So i hope, you're daughter will study at a university, where they have an open minded definition of art.
By the way - i did not studied art, but philosophy and mathmatics (so i know what definitions are;-)
All the best for your daughter - tell her my greetings.

Hi Milena,

I'm no artist, but I think your "illustration" is fantastic, I love all the details in it. To me, art is art, but I guess artist get picky about what they consider fine arts. The college my daughter got accepted to is also very picky about what they wanted to see in her portfolio when she applied. No comics, no illustrations. It was very hard to get into. They only chose 50 students out of hundreds who applied so I am very VERY proud of her. Yes, I'm a bragging mother at the moment because I AM very proud of her. But, she still needs to learn all the fine details etc.

You're obviously a born artist which I think is great, especially since you didn't study it at all. Fantastic. I love art, wish I could draw myself, but no, I CAN draw you stick people though hehe

what is your site address, I would love to see your work :)
Sabrina
