@FelCandy have you seen Erte's art? Your line work and especially the dramatic line of the poses you draw totally reminds me of his work (which I think is some of the best art of all times).

Wow, thank you so much, that is high praise! I am going for a kind of art nouveau style in this Heralds series, and I am so happy to hear your feedback! I hope with the subsequent pieces I can really push my limits for this style.

Art Nouveau as a style is characterized by juxtaposition of the angular forms and idealized curvilinear forms, with highly geometric and symmetric backgrounds and design elements. Sounds like you know about Mucha.

Erte is Art Deco, which really is a kind of graphic stylization of Art Nouveau, but the emphasis on idealized forms and geometric designs is held over from Art Nouveau and taken even further down the road of idealization and simplification.

Your style seems like a mix of Art Deco and Expressionism (Gustav Klimt, Egon Shciele). There is a very nice mix of idealized forms and emphasized angularity in your poses that straddles those two art movements. Your work is really good. I realize this is a lot, but I am a big fan of all of these art styles, and I think your artwork is amazing.

If you want some positive criticism, let me know, I think I have a good eye and I think well meaning critiques given with the understanding that your work is amazing, but things can always be slightly better, is useful.
