Art Nouveau Summer and Winter by Ysa Art Nouveau Summer and Winter by Ysa
I was asked by :iconstudioxiii: to draw something for their artbook! I am so happy and honoured that they asked me! I hope I did not let them down!

The theme of the artbook was Kemonomimi and Art Nouveau! :D But, okay, why did I choose geese? Of all the animals in the world I picked the most angry annoying animals ever! But I head this idea of the compass rose in my head so I got the idea to make gooses as they leave when winter comes and come back when its spring. The right lady goose (Canadian goose) is looking upward as if she feels winter is coming but her wings are still down because it is still summer. The boy goose (domestic goose) has just gotten home after a long travel.
This is something very different from my usual work, I'm trying new things but that also makes me unsure...

A big thanks for Michael Putter who helped me with the compass rose (he added the letters). :love:

Vectorize? Stations? I'm sorry I am a bit a noob with those terms. I am sure I could use Photoshop better but I just ink everything with the hard round brush and then colour everything... with the hard round brush...

It is different, but it's also pretty neat! It's great to branch out with new things. Might find something you really like. :)

The background is great. Time well spent!

Geese really crack me up. :XD:

Geese! Seeing this picture makes me appreciate them more. I walk to school, so especially in the autumn months, there are SCORES of them blocking the sidewalk, so I burn some time chasing them around like a 4-year old.

I'll remember not to do this anymore.

FUUU the patterns are so bright and lovely on this. My favorite one is the warm-colored background slice on the left, with the elegant little flowers and vegetation.

The entire composition itself is so neat and clean and has that ying-yang feel to it. And their expressions are adorable!

Guess what? I've decided to one-up my "Machina" and birth out another bad boy...two, technically. Art thou willing to help me bring it into the world, like the last one?

Haha that's hot. I know geese are still always pissed off at everything but guess that comes from flying so long... I know I would be angry then as well
Don't they chase you around? I know never to mess with them cause they can hit me with their wings so acutally geese scare me to death

Thanks a lot! I'm glad to hear you like it :D

Oh wow yes sure!!!! :D :D :D I love those "Machina" of yours, they are amazing!

Same goes for seagulls. XDD They are very hardy birds.

Yes, they do chase me around, too.

Huzzah! I'm being super-sekkritive about this one and am only letting a certain number of people see it in its WIP stage.
