Alphonse Mucha

For my pre-production bible style I was given the theme of an 'Alphonse Mucha' type of drawing technique, which consists of incredible detail and subtle colour.
Alphonse Mucha was a Czech art nouveau painter and art decorator who focused mainly on drawing women in a beautifully feminine intricate fashion. After looking through his work I am really happy that I have this style to work on because it is exactly what I love.. detail and lovely colours! Mucha also uses quite a lot of gold in his paintings which really interests me because in my A-level artwork I focused my projects around gustav klimt and used stylised swirling patterns and gold leaf in my paintings which worked really well and echoed Mucha's style. Although transferring his style to animation would probably be very tricky due to the detail, focusing on Alphonse Mucha's work could potentially lead to some very unique and dramatic design ideas. Here are a few examples of his paintings...
