Art Nouveau Loki by Nero749 Art Nouveau Loki by Nero749
Well obviously this one was coming. You probably guessed it would :XD:
I've missed doing art nouveau. I'll be doing it a lot (commissions) the coming months, so that's great!

I love how this turned out, all 'old gold' as it is. And the wings, though perhaps over the top (can you go over the top with a god from Nordic myths, really?), look great on him.

Loki will be return to my gallery.

I love the roses, they add a really great touch to it - and the wings too! Your art nouveau is really beautiful, so much detail and classic, stately elegance. They remind me of old book covers in a way.

I just thought there had to be some red in there, to set all the green off :)

And to think once upon a time, art nouveau was everywhere! On your groceries, billboards, buildings... *sigh*

Dear Nero:

This is You Know Who! Greetings from Canada!!!

Well, kiddo, you finally done it!!! You've finally put an Asgard God on the same par as a certain consulting detective! BRAVO!! I wish there was an emoticon that waves a white flag!!

Tell me, you cheating on the side with Tom? Just a filthy Canadian thought!!! ;)

Oh,by the by, keep knocking them out of the park, kiddo!!!


Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

Pff... I think "Sherlock" - related deviations make up over half of ALL my deviations, Loki has what, 4 now? Don't think Sherlock would feel threatened just yet ;)

Haha! If only, but that would imply Sherlock is somehow mine, and unless I've missed something very big in my own life... XD

Dear Nero:

This is You Know Who! Greetings from Canada!! I hope this finds and yours well and ready for the Games!

Would that something big be either marrying said God of Mischief or a certain Consulting Detective?

(raises right hand) I will admit to being totally and thoroughly Cumberbatched!!! I will also agree with Ms. Adler that brainy is the new sexy!!!

One suggestion: I know you've done it before, I think, but have you ever thought of doing a couple of pieces just using their names? This goes for Tom, Benedict, Martin and, maybe, Rupert? It doesn't matter if their real names or the characters they play. How about doing that with the name "Frankenstein" with Benedict as the Creature?

Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

P.S. Sometime when you have five minutes all to yourself, I must talk to you about your fan fiction, if I may.

You definitely should! There's some great stock out there, in case you find the borders too much work, and there's actually a competition going on (over at the Beautiful Borders group)!

Wow, really? I'm not really good with line work in general... <.<' My art teacher realized that even when I have a ruler, my lines somehow turn out crooked. XD

Yeah.... <.<' I still managed to get an A in the class. I'm still not sure how since a lot of it was linework... <.<'

I keep forgetting you can search for things in specific categories! XD I shall have to do so soon... then again, it might be hard since I don't do digital art, and I'm just as horrible at tracing as I am at drawing straight lines.... XD

Please, those horns are begging for Nouveau. Though they could fit Deco as well!

I'm sure you *could* but given their myths, it would take a great deal of effort of will and tastelessness...Stopping to think about it, I think they even trump the Egyptian pantheon.

:iconnero749:
Nero749 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yeah, but there's very little art deco I love enough to do myself. And I mainly love it in buildings, so that could be tricky :XD:
They definitely do! I mean the shit that goes down in those myths... Honestly I think the vikings were eating the wrong kinda mushroom when they wrote those down ;)

Hmm...I could totally go over the top with Norse mythology. Loki could turn into like...I don't know, a horse...female horse..haha...and get pregnant....and give birth to a giant horse....with like 8 legs!..heheheheh...

wait..

crap

no but seriously this is really good. It fits the character and flows well and is just all around lovely :dalove:

Thank you!
