Lili Nouveau by kishokahime Lili Nouveau by kishokahime
Lili, from the movie Legend.

Another classic that I loved for no good reason. The movie itself makes no sense, but it's pretty. So I'm okay with this. Lili was a general, spoiled, whatever princess, up until she suddenly became the desire of Darkness. who turned her into something way more interesting, imo.

Hence having to do twice as much work for this picture, but worth it for Dark!Lili. (its too bad you can't see all of her, actually, i might make a reverse version)

silly magic, horses with horns pretending to be unicorns, a weirdly innocent looking tom cruise. me gusta.

Also, Darkness was my first guilty, fictional character crush. which just screams therapy, but srsly. Tim Curry. With horns ♥

I found your work from a post by the Pop Theory Store on Facebook.  This is one of my favourites (The Last Unicorn is another).  I love how you included both views of Lili in this.   It's truly spectacular.

perfect interpretation of dark/light Lili.
Your thoughts on the movie are similar to mine... and who doesn´t have a villain crush on Darkness?

Beautiful work, I love these kind of drawings. Reminds me a bit of Alphonse MuchaHeart

One of my favorite movies; I absolutely *love* your rendition of Lili and especially her "dark side" in the shadow there.  Beautiful work!

First off, this is lovely. I adore Art Nouveau, and you caught the style and essence of the film perfectly. Secondly, babygirl, y'all don't need no therapy, cus' I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. Tim Curry, with horns, playing a 13 foot sexual demon. Therapy please!!!

I adore this!

*high fives* so far, it would seem we have a similar taste in older movies. :D Legend was another favorite when I was growing up.

I love how you integrate key moments from the movies into the top of each card--and the tarot style... I think I'm going to have to watch your work from now on. :D

The movie makes no sense? What? It's a great movie about good and evil. Great work none the less!

This is amazing. You're not alone with Darkness though. He was a sexy beast. ;)
hybridfaerie Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Professional General Artist

statikradio Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

All of these, gorgeous! And how they take me back! Maybe do one for Isabeau from Ladyhawke?
kishokahime Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
Isabeau is DEFINITELY on my list, no worries there. I adore that movie, and it's still understated to this day.
kitten42 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yay!! (does mid-thirty-year-old happy dance) I wore out three tapes of The Last Unicorn as a kid (my dad got me the archival DVD for my thirtieth birthday), my mother threatened my Legend tape periodically as a teenager, Labyrinth is how I found out David Bowie existed when I was twelve, my husband and I still quote Willow periodically (you are not the navigator, *I* am the navigator!!), and I just introduced my eight year old to FernGully. Thank you for the awesome work! Yes, I win the geek contest in my town. :D
bloodyneptune Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You have NO idea how thrilled I am to see this as part of your set. This movie MADE my childhood, and to top it off, the quote is from what still is one of my favorite songs.
Im SO happy to know this was someone elses idea of an important character.
LizAdeniji Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Have you seen the directors cut? It makes so much more sense than the North American edit!

Beanie86 Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
I was wondering when you where going to make Lily! I love how you added her dark self into it as well. Simply love it.

It's eye candy in film form, like the fifth element ;-) The horns are epic !

coolest bad guy ever. his design was fantastic, and that was even before CGI demons.

He most certainly still stands out in my mind from all the other villains of the time.Well that and being Tim Curry...
