[Workflow] Justitia’s Judgement

Justitia's Judgement
I had been studying Gustav Klimt and Art Nouveau for the past few weeks. Art Nouveau is an international art movement happened 1890-1910 in Europe and US. It has given rise to a lot of highly styled art forms. Gustav Klimt was the leader of the Secessionists in Vienna and well known for his golden style.

This is an attempt of mine adapting Gustav’s style into digital painting, conveying the theme “Environmental Issue/Global Warming”. Well, my idea here is to protest the manipulation of environmental issue as a holy reason for economic benefits. Environmental movement should be a spontaneous responsibility but not some new trends that being capitalized for profits and suppression. Hope all can act wisely before purchasing goods/participating movements that labeled “environmental friendly”.
