Bubo v2.0 (Steampunk Portrait)

Bubo is Greek for Owl. It is currently used as the Genus name for the Horned Owls and their relatives with ear tufts. It is also the common name for the Greek owl - which is also the name for Athena's owl - which was made into a clockwork owl for the original Clash of the Titans movie. My piece is titled Bubo v2.0 because it's version 2 of the clockwork owl.

MODEL: Yaya Han (who also made the costume)
PLATFORM: PC and Mac
TOOLS: Intuos 3 Wacom tablet
PROGRAM: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
EFFECTS: I don't use any 'effects'. In Illustrator I use simple strokes and Brush strokes, gradients and gradient meshes, and many many objects with varying transparency settings. In Photoshop I paint, often using the semi-transparent settings and glaze in the traditional neo-classic technique.

She goes very well with this piece:

Here's the true story of what happened: I was working in my studio one day in March and I got the Blue Screen of Death. So while my hard drive rebuilt, I laid down on my studio sofa and took a nap. In my dream, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the image of Cthulhu driving this poor corseted damsel insane with temptation of pie. Being a woman - that particular torture is very close to me. When I awoke the image hadn't left and I was compelled to sketch it out... thinking that it would turn out like crap and I could put it aside - but it didn't. It was beautiful. So then I sat down to do a color study, thinking that the sickly-otherworldy-green would ruin the piece - but it didn't. Two weeks later she was does - and I hadn't worked on any other projects at all - including the client piece I had been working on when my computer crashed originally. She was a standalone for a long time, until I kept getting requests for others like her. Cupcake came along in 2011, the Ice Cream Cthulhu Triptych came in 2012, and Cookie was finally completed in January of 2013. You see - it's not about the sexual enticement at all (except of the viewer) - it's about the specific horror women feel about the terrible balance between the pleasures gained from beauty and from dessert.

The first of six (maybe nine) in my bridesmaid series.
These are the gifts for my lovely bridesmaids.

I may also be doing some for my two junior bridesmaids and my flower girl.

Anyway, this is Courtney, my "big sister" that I never had. She has been such a wonderful friend to me throughout the years and we have danced together for three years. We also danced a duet together in June 2012.

Done in the Art Nouveau style added with my own flair of colorfulness (yes that is a word).
