Contest: Fan Art Nouveau

Wed Apr 30, 2014, 9:01 PM
Hello, everyone! It's time for another Fan Art contest. This time, we're asking participants to create Fan Art in Art Nouveau style.

What is Art Nouveau?


"Art Nouveau (French pronunciation: ​[aʁ nuvo], Anglicised to /ˈɑːrt nuːˈvoʊ/) or Jugendstil is an international philosophy[1] and style of art, architecture and applied art—especially the decorative arts—that was most popular during 1890–1910.[2] English uses the French name Art nouveau ("new art"), but the style has many different names in other countries. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment.[3]

Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils and lighting, as well as the fine arts. According to the philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. For many well-off Europeans, it was possible to live in an art nouveau-inspired house with art nouveau furniture, silverware, fabrics, ceramics including tableware, jewellery, cigarette cases, etc. Artists desired to combine the fine arts and applied arts, even for utilitarian objects.[3]"

I've been trying to submit my entry, and it says that it's been submitted successfully, but no correspondence notice thing is showing up in my messages so I'm kind of worried. Did my submission come through ? :(

I'm trying to read through these comments but a powerful force keeps recurring, upsetting my flow: how do you pronounce "nouveau"? noo-voo / noo-voe is what I've been switching around depending on how I feel for about seven years.
Also, I think I'm going to have a blast at joining the fun. I must know how to say the name of the nouveau movement before anything though. Someone might be all, "whatcha drawin'?" and I don't want to be all, "Just a bit no vo ya know?" I am a dummy!

Good initiative - use every vowel and one of them will be right! Commendable effort just attempting to say it. #1 haha

Since I don't speak French I just had to search on goggle and found this page that has the audio for the pronunciation, just scroll down a bit.  en.wiktionary.org/wiki/nouveau

Looking forward to seeing your entry! :la:

You need to submit your entry to the Fan Art Nouveau folder in CR-FanArt-Contests, there is no need to note any of the judges.

Just wanted to know if I have to stick to the canon look for a character, that was original from a book or if I can create my own version.

alexandrasalas Featured By Owner May 3, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
If the book has little to no description on how the character looks, then it's up to your interpretation and we'll have no problem with that.
