schwarze milch by gravitationaltim schwarze milch by gravitationaltim
title from paul celan's awesome poem 'todesfuge' (fugue of death), meaning 'black milk'. just think about that image. awesome.

yeah i thought i'd give my hand at an art noveaux style. my mind literally went 'i want the cover to play on the irony that it's becoming spring and shit is dying', and then i was like 'art noveaux is all about flowers and death'

yeah. D: i didn't originally mean for it to be so gay, but drawing inspiration from alphonse mucha, who drew almost exclusively beautiful, robed women, it felt weird not to make the picture look a bit romantic and girly

This is gorgeous. I love the style and, again, the color choices. The flowers are a nice (and ironic) pop.

I think you achieved your goal in portaiting dead nature elements. Perfect choice of colours, it makes everything look dry, and the sad expressions of the characters are a great indicator of that, too.

Also, love the amount of detail put into this work! :love:

this looks nice.

yeah, mucha is fantastic. his style was instantly beautiful to me, as with many of the artists in the art noveaux era, like klimt and the such. just an age of decadence and beauty

yeah adobe illustrator, it would just take the shapes and give them a reeeeeally crisp, clean, cut-out look (that you get from vectors, which is what illustrator does). SORRY I WAS VAGUE. ;U
