Scheherazade by Larocka84 Scheherazade by Larocka84
This is an other picture inspired by an art nouveau image. The original was an Indian Girl, but as usual... I love mixing art nouveau and Disney, and Jasmine is one of my favourite characters. She reminds me Scheherazade from One Thousand and One Nights.
If you want to compare, you can find the original picture here:[link]

I like this. For one, I love Jasmine, for another, the concept is great. I am a huge fan of all the little details you gave her outfit and the color, of course. I have always liked Jasmine in purple, she looks so pretty! :D

Actually the original picture is wonderful. Her dress was pink but I too like better purple for Jasmine! :D
Thanks so much!

Gorgeous drawing! I love it! I also just got done working/making costumes for a production of "The Arabian Nights" and we made Scherherazade have a slight resemblance to Jasmine

Yes, I think they can fit perfectly! When I saw the original picture I immediately thought: Jasmine! :)

Beautiful job, especially on the detail. Really reminds me of old Indian art. Have you ever noticed that Genie mentions Scherherazade in "Friend Like Me"? :D

OOoh...I did notice that!!! It's like, "Scherherazade had a thousand tales!" Hehe.

Yep. :D They didn't get the number of tales right but at least they put her in there. :)

I think it would have thrown off the song if they did. :)

I didn't, cause I listened only to the italian version of this song. But I will!

"1,001 Arabian Nights" is one of my all-time favorite stories! You did a really good job! And, you know what? I'm doing a drawing of Scheherazade too. Hopefully sometime soon we can compare! I'd love to see your critique.

Love the way you've captured the Noveau style, and still managed to tell a story (ugh, sorry, pun not intended).

I really like her hair and the detail of her clothes, the background is also nice C:
Just a little bit of advice, her face looks like it could use some more shadows, and a picture tends to look more three dimensional if you use more than one shade for the shadows.

Nevertheless it still looks great, you did a wonderful job <3

Thank you very much! I know, shadows are my weak spot, I have to improve my way of colouring...
