I love this so much! My first thought was Mucha, but now I see it looks more like a vintage book illustration and I love the style. I think her (his?) hand with the arrow seems a bit awkwardly positioned, but the textures are amazingly done.
I can't believe it has come to this point in my life and I still haven't left a comment on this because, I never even understood the concept of a "favorite piece of art" 'till i saw this. THIS is my favorite piece in the whole world and I've live 25 years so far and have never been good with picking favorites.
This image or picture looks like to the medieval (middle ages) or renaissance image or picture. The armor is a medieval armor or looks like to a medieval armor. This is or could be a medieval love. The man with the armor is a knight, prince or king and the woman is a lady or could be a princess or a queen. I dreamed or thought something like in that the boy or young man with and armor demonstrates love (like a knight) with a girl or young woman including the girl or young woman with a dress that looks like a princess. I wrote stories that appear boys or young men with the armors and girls or young women that demonstrates love. Maybe, this image or picture can inspire or influence me to write or make a story (of love) (or not).
Hey, I just wanted you to know you inspired me to create something similar. I recreated this a bit and added my own style. I'm not selling it or anything, but I wanted you to know you inspired me. Someone brought it to my attention that you were the original artist. I found this piece floating around facebook awhile back and had no one to attribute it to. So thank you, it's beautiful.
hey! thanks so much i'm glad you found me and that you were inspired to draw. just in case you stumble on interesting images for the future-- try reverse searching an uncredited image with google images -- [link]. click on the camera icon inside the search box and upload the photo. google will tell you where else it lives online and hopefully find you the source. cheers!
