I do. Or do I... by Avalantis I do. Or do I... by Avalantis
You could already see it in the desktop screenshot and here it is in full glory.

It was a commission from two schoolmates, Ali and Maria, for a theatre production played in London. They asked for something in Art Nouveau style with a split section for both plays. One was late 19th century and the other a fairytale. Those elements got me sold on doing this project.

- The left play "The Proposal" is about a young farmer asking his rivaling farmer's daughter's hand.
- The right play "Fairytale" is a new play about a princess dreaming about her knight in shining armour but eventually has to settle for less.
Both are about unconventional courting.

I tried to make both characters interact, but at the same time unique. She is supposed to be more dreamy while he is more contemplating.

I didn't have time to put in more symbols and stuff but I do like that I managed to get a heart in the layout. Can you find it? :P

Like the guy a lot, unless he doen't look like a farmer. Guess he put himself his best garments for the proposal.

Is the heart at the top, between the branches and the sign?

It's good to see your art again! Man I've missed it :)
Love what you've done with the layout here! I must say, I find the subject matter really interesting! If I was a little closer to London I'd go see the plays. The subtle gradients and textures work really well!

Aww, that's sweet of you to say :] When I saw you update the other day, I was excited as well. And then, since I just finished my thing, I thought: "I must update too!" haha

Hehe, you should definitely update more often :)
I live in Leeds, and study maths in Oxford. The work is hard and doesn't leave much time for arting, but it's a really good course :D
