Tutorial: Art Nouveau by uncannyphantom Tutorial: Art Nouveau by uncannyphantom
A while back I decided to draw some fanart in the art nouveau style and I searched around online and couldn't find any tutorials for how to draw in such a style. A bit peeved, I decided to make my own tutorial so that others could figure it out as well, without having to go through the hassle that I went through.

I refer to a text on dafont used in Mucha's prints: www.dafont.com/font.php?file=n…

If this comes in handy please let me know, I'd love to see some other people's interpretations of my tutorial, plus I just love the art nouveau style.

-UPDATE- Aug. 19, 2011
I incorporated a recent design of mine into the tutorial. You can see the design here: uncannyphantom.deviantart.com/…

-UPDATE- Feb. 22, 2012
I incorporated another design of mine into the tutorial. The design can be seen here: uncannyphantom.deviantart.com/…

-UPDATE- April 14, 2013
I incorporated another two designs of mine into the tutorial. The designs can be seen here and here: uncannyphantom.deviantart.com/… uncannyphantom.deviantart.com/…

-UPDATE- October 6, 2013
I incorporated another design of mine into the tutorial. The design can be seen here:

Much thank yous for the tutorial, it came handy (again). Seems that I'd forgotten to favourite this, so I will be fixing this mistake now.

Also used some of the styles present in here if you're curious: foxofwar.deviantart.com/art/Ze…

This tutorial is awesome! I used it, and although I diverged on several points for stylistic reasons, it was very helpful, for I've never been able to find someplace that could tell me how to draw Art Nouveau style. Thank you! :33

this has given me a few ideas for my IT assignment, we have to Create an Art Nouveau Poster and I gotten say mine looked too modern so this has given me idea for panels, and how to show detail without going into detail!
