A portrait of my mother in the style of Alphonse Mucha (art nouveau)

i was looking at the artist's profit and at most, i'd get like 15 bucks. >.< which would be cool.... i could but a lot of things with 15 bucks cause of my sly thrifty middle-class ways...

its not like you would get a print if you did that. But if she hangs it on the wall in the art room, you can look at it every 6th period lol.

Nice work! I really love Art Nouveau. If I may make a suggestion, perhaps the roses at the top could be outlined a little darker, just to match the rest of the image and give the whole thing a unified look. Even without that, it's still very good!

Thank you so much for the input! I was so unsure of what else to do to it. Im going to submit it to my AP class after break, so im really glad i can still improve it before hand... xD

I'm sure you will get a good grade, no matter what! You really did justice to the Art Nouveau theme.
