Rough updated~


Civilization rough updated~ it feels like pulling teeth again~ i might just start on the next piece, for "Fisherman and his soul". with less people~ :(
Like people that commented, it's definitely a tribute to my favorite artist, Mucha's work. less for the Slav epic, more for his wonderful work in "Le Pater". i am going to try to get my hands on it in a paris library this week or next, and take some photos so i can show you how wonderful it truly is. and if anyone's interested in the Oscar Wilde story this ptg is based on, they could read it here:

it's truly one of the most beautiful stories, and very important to me for reasons that i don't yet fully grasp. Maybe i am a little better of a person for having read it. How else could i recommand it? :)

See you soon,
shell

I really like the atmosphere you have built up in this version. I must say, I am a little sad to see the design motif that was in the lower left hand corner disappear. Did you not like it?
