"Die Felsenburg" is a collective of german poets. Currently we are searching for illustrations for our upcoming poetry book. This Drawing perfectly fits one of the poems. Could we use it for our book? We will give you credit. That's for sure.

It sounds like a charming idea. I always love a poetry collection. I am constrained by the model's rules, though. Would the book be a commercial venture (sold for money)? I'm not permitted to pass the image on for commercial use. But if it's not, let me know, and I'll see if I can work something out.

All the best, and good luck with your book!

This book will be for free. Maybe we will just publish it as a free downloadable pdf-file. It depends on the money, that we want to spend for it. We are just regular people who write poems. :)

This reminds me so much of Alphose Mucha's work, but you quite obviously have your own style that's rather stunning. Expertly done illustration you have here. :heart:

Really nice work! I love how many colours you have in the shadows and folds of the dress. And I really like the graphic Mucha-esque flowers. I was surprised to see how small this was, at 8" x 12" you have really filled this with detail. Nice work!

Wow! This is amazing! Most people who try to use Mucha's style don't get the figures right... I think they try to make the women too skinny or "modern" but I recognized this right away! : ) Great job!

I'm honoured - thank you! I definitely didn't go into the incredible detail and symmetry he manages, but I'm hoping to develop that through the rest of this set. I'm very pleased that you like it. :love:
