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 ♥

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!!!

*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
