The Royal Sheet by Nero749 The Royal Sheet by Nero749
So you can blame :iconmortmere: for this (and every single other Sherlock+Art Nouveau piece I've done, come to think of it ;)). She mentioned how the sheet would be perfect for art nouveau and I immediately jumped on the idea.

This is quite different from my other art nouveau stuff and maybe I should just call this 'art nouveau inspired.'
It happened because I painted Sherlock first and then created the background. But I realised that if I wanted to fit the two together I'd have to add a bit of a 'drawn-element' to Sherlock. But I didn't want to! Because I liked the way he'd come out... And leaving it all painty, in combination with the background the way it was look too much like a collage... which didn't fit what I wanted.

So I tinkered around with the background (that looked like they normally do in these pieces of mine) and finally decided that adding some texture made it look better but still not 'great.'
Then I had this idea... Some new lighting effects later and the end-result is before you!

I actually really like this style. It's almost the 'realistic' version of my previous art nouveau stuff. Almost like I got Sherlock in the studio to pose for me in a sheet (now there's an idea :devilish:) while I got the perfect shot to use as a reference for one of my art nouveau pieces.

In fact, I liked this new style of mine so much I stayed up all the night to create another piece! But that one will have to wait ;)

BTW, I am running out of titles...

That's good news because I doubt I'll be going back on it :)

HOW DO YOU DRAW MATERIAL SO WELL?! And faces, but still. To me he looks like he's just sneezed/just about to :P

My oh my, you’re quick! It took me far longer to get back to dA than it took of you to create two new fabulous pieces of art! I really envy the effortlessness with which you paint (meanwhile, I’ve barely gotten around to sketching something little sheet-related and deleting it, infuriated with the lack of time and proper ideas. Painter’s block or something?).

Again, I see some Japonisme here (or maybe it’s just that butterfly pattern?) and I like the 3D effect the lighting and Sherlock’s unexpected pose add to the usually very 2D art nouveau style. It looks almost like Sherlock and his sheet have been surprised by paparazzis while he was posing for a more traditional art nouveau piece…? :D

(And don’t I just love to be blamed for something gorgeous like this!)
