Golden Moon by angychan Golden Moon by angychan
-Experiment
-Liberty
-Monochromatic
-Pixelated
-About 3 or 4 hours
-Photoshop

My inspirator was Mucha for the liberty style of the image, the japanese-like girl came out before,
In a first time she had to represent "the night" with long black hair and a fluffy kimono fading in the sky, later I had the idea of the art nouveau moon with a simple scheme of lunar phases.
The monochromatic golden likeness of the pic came out at the end, where after a vast number of tries I decided that this was the only way to make the picture decent.
:XD: In conclusion: This is "the night" which is watching through her art nouveau window, selecting what kind of moon she will show tonight XD

Hi Angysan, would you do me the honor of granting me the permission to turn this into cut out? Just thought of a new method and would like to see if the idea work.

WOw, i love the simplicity, how you didn't overdo it with to many shades and stuff. i also love how you did the cycle of the moon in the boig crcle thing. her face is absolutely beautiful, i wish i could do pixel art like that, i also wish i could make my own bases, but i suck ><

the dithering looks great, it adds more depth to it. i wish i could do dithering.

jeez :O_o: i wish for a lotta stuff

it only took you 3 - 4 horus!?!? >> it'd take me a couple of weeks :faint:

are there any special techniques you used to make this, or did your super awesome talent to it for you?

very good monotone pixelart. the dithering is subltle, the design is relativly perfect since its basic yet very appealing.
i like this one

Contrasts could of been higher tho

Obviously the selection of the moon phase is just a pointless pretext

It is realy interesting project. At first, it reminds me Mucha's arts a bit (maybe the climate of your work is similar) but that girl wears kimono and it is interesting innovation. An it remids me arts (because of that border with moons). Anyway, all together look very, very interesting.

Angy, that's beautiful. It's like art nouveau, my favourite movement. I love the colours and the moon phases. Her hair is lovely. I can't believe you only used 5 colours :)
