Analysis of selected work of Alphonse Mucha 

My analysis of four of Mucha’s works revealed many characteristics typical to the artist’s techniques, compositions, and subject matter. His combinations of beautiful female figures, rich ornamentation and extravagant lettering radiate luxury and pleasure. Mucha used ‘formless’ materials such as hair to create whiplash curves and decorative forms which, paired with his intricate pattern work, create highly detailed pieces. Linework is intrinsic to Mucha’s works. All of his forms incorporate a thick black outline to their stylised aesthetic. Mucha also experiments with the overlapping of multiple elements, such as the common use of the large circular frame motif and the female figure.

I made a walkthrough of my process for drawing faceted stones! Judging by the timestamps from the screenshots I took, drawing this one stone took an hour and three minutes, although I know I went and checked tumblr a couple times while I was working, so let’s just call it an hour.

Now MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

  • This walkthrough assumes you already know how to use layer masks, the clone stamp, and the lasso tool. There’s also one part where I didn’t label it, but I inverted the selection so I could keep my lines consistent. It’s in the third image.
  • Unfortunately I can’t really help with colour choice and the actual colouring of the pinwheel shape that makes up the back facets, but you can kind of see that I tended to colour with lines that cut across the facets and and kept the outer parts of the facets darker. It would probably be best to find a reference to work from!
  • This particular cut of stone is called the ‘brilliant’ cut.
  • There’s actually a lot of internal reflection business that goes on in a stone, but I elected to ingore all of it since at a distance you can’t really tell anyway.

now GO FORTH AND DAZZLE YOUR FRIENDS WITH YOUR SPARKLE
