Thanks to my Patreon account, I have gotten to the point where I can do a portfolio/personal piece once a month.
((Take a look at my Patreon account!  www.patreon.com/arania?ty=h ))

So here we go!  This is my portfolio piece for November.  During our trip/honeymoon, my wife and I visited the Mucha museum in Prague, and it was fantastic to see some of Alphonse Mucha's pieces up close and in person, and it was a really lovely shared experience to talk about style, the way he depicted women, and some of the commanalities to his artwork.

I wanted to do a piece inspired by Mucha of my wife - to celebrate the honeymoon and trip, and doing these portfolio pieces for my Patreon has been a fantastic opportunity to explore these side projects.  I did this digitally, because I was more inspired by the style than necessarily the technique (and a lot of his pieces were done print-style, and that's not something I'm familiar with at all).

But I wanted to integrate the broad outer lines, the way he draws women, some 
"simple" designwork at the corners, and other iconography and color choices to represent my wife :)

This piece in particular is directly inspired by Mucha's piece, and my wife's favorite of the pieces they had there "Fruit" - I loved the way he drew and celebrated the beauty of a more fully-figured woman, the posework, and attention to detail.
