Dissertation? What dissertation? :o
Wait, you mean I'm supposed to be studyi- no, writing?! Surely, you can't be serious!

I came across this scan (thank you, SquirrelLuvsPnut!) yesterday and came to the conclusion that it was simple enough to not be a major headache. You see, I've gone literally months without opening Illustrator, so saying I'm rusty would be a frickin' understatement. I wanted something to do in Photoshop, something that preferably wouldn't take more to do than my disserta- yeah, that.

I toyed around with a few art nouveau-like ideas until I finally gave up and googled some posters to not look like a doofus. Found a frame, flipped it and ended up vectoring it because the quality wasn't ~pristine~...which was good, since I kept resizing like crazy and shape layers are a godsend. Next I figured the whole thing didn't really look art nouveau-ish so I made a crescent moon + lily "plates" at the top. The lily had the same story as the frame, amusingly enough. Copy/pasting those plates was the most satisfying part of all this, unf.
The wall has a subtle noise texture but I doubt it's visible on small resolutions, when it's barely visible on 5600 x something.

In the end I did more work than I expected. And Christ, only two days? I should procrastinate more often!

Eh. Praise and tomatoes are appreciated, sankyuu~
Oh, and if anyone wants alternate color schemes, leave a message/comment with the resolution and color scheme you want.
I'm too stumped to think of any ATM >A<

    I love how much detail you managed to put into such an easy-looking piece. Nice job on the lilies and the roses in the girl's hands. I also enjoy the letters above the crescent moon - they kiiinda remind me of all the creative Scarlet Letter designs. I'd leave out the dashed lines around the frame. I don't understand if they're a part of the Art Nouveau style or what they're supposed to mean. Probably make more solid swirls instead like at the bottom and stretch them towards the edges of the wall because ya know - it looks empty.

    I don't think you're rusty at all, though. The lines on the girl's cloak aren't as smooth as they could be but it feels like you made that on purpose, which you probably have. The rest is as sharp as ever. Nothing to complain about from the technical point of view.

    Thanks for the comment!
    The dashed lines are from the original scan; I initially wanted them to frame her head like a halo but ended up connecting them to the frame instead. Reconsidering this piece, solid swirls mimicking the ones on the frame would've been better indeed. Unfortunately I didn't see it at the time, lol. It'd be nice to revisit this in the future tho.

    The emptiness is actually a feature and not a bug, lol. I've been more keen on minimalistic, everything-in-the-center walls lately, like this one or this one, for example. And most art nouveau works are portrait-oriented as well.

    Having worked with it for much longer, PS feels more familiar than AI, which is why I chose to use that instead of AI c: The dashed/dotted swirls and lines on the girl's cloak are actually made with the freeform pen tool, similar to what I did in this wall, that's why they look irregular.

    yay for art nouveau! loving this, good to see you worked in AI <3
    would been good to see more bold lines, on the edges maybe, with another bg color.

    You know I LOVE art nouveau~~
    Sorry, I can't be constructive, I love everything about this.
    I really like the minimalistic approach you took.
