CONSTELLATION:ANGELS__Barbara by DeeJay-Alien CONSTELLATION:ANGELS__Barbara by DeeJay-Alien
After watching Space Battleship Yamato and drawing fanart... I've thought up one thing.
This one is a concept art for my next idea. (:
I don't know yet what it will become, I just have two characters and a little story in my head. +List of influences and styles.
I always wanted to make something Sci-fi and Orthodox.)))

What about this art - I don't even know what's it - painting or drawing. XD
Here's an angel named Barbara. She lives on special planet. (: A planet of angels.)))

:heart: Influences
Leiji Matsumoto's oldschool sci-fi anime
Byzantine art (architecture, jewlery, mosaics)
Orthodox icons
Alphonce Mucha and Art Nouveau
Coyote Kisses music (especially "Galactic Love Song" and "Starchaser")
Telescope photos of stars and planets from Wikipedia (I've used them like a stock here as well)
Isao Sasaki's oldschool anime opening/ending songs

Plus
Art Deco style
Totalitarian art. Stalin's Empire Style and National-Classicism, propaganda posters
Soviet cartoons about astronauts
for another character - space Admiral from Earth. :)

You can view the process and details on Tumblr. BTW, some sh!tty sketches of this Admiral. (: ---> [link]

This is a very pretty painting.

I don't know if the font and icon on the bottom is meant to be barely visible or not, if not I would suggest giving it a darker outer glow if you want it to stay white, right now it blends in a lot and is barely visible.

I like the pose, it's art nouveau-esque. The texture and colors work well too. Beautiful.
