Kir Talmage says: I have something to share with you! Maybe you know it... I came across this essay/analysis while poking at my pumpkin illustration (looking for art nouveau styles and examples and all because I wasn't satisfied with the circular motif in the background) : http://www.scottmcd.net/artanalysis/?p=46 I wound up fiddling with line weight after reading this, but there's so much more (precise explanations of things we do instinctively, so can learn to do intentionally), and I want to read more of his articles when I get the chance. ~ Reply?Amy Sue Stirland replied to this: that was a wonderful tutorial! Thanks for sharing it.
