I created this illustration as an homage to the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. Cate Blanchett was amazing as Galadriel in both trilogies, I thought. I'm also a very big fan of Alphonse Mucha, a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist from the very early 20th century. I wanted this piece to feel similar to the iconic works of art by Mucha, who's look is very influential in the art world even today.
One of the images that inspired me the most on this piece was the image below. It is the Mucha Illustration titled Amethyst. There is also a link to the piece below the art to the Mucha Foundation website.
The two images below show the vector line work that went into creating this piece as well.
