Oh, I thought it was after Rush's newest album "Clockwork Angels"

She is pretty though, nice job. I do like the piece, just thought different source inspired it.

Aww, sorry for the disappointment. Is there a lot of art for their new album? Sounds like it'd be cool anyways.

Thanks!

Yeah. Are you familiar with Rush?

This is to anyone else, they're an 80s rock band from Canada, probably most notable for Tom Sawyer and Red Barchetta. And YYZ just because of the dum solo by Neil Peart, hands down the most talented drummer in history.

But they released Clockwork Angels, and it's a concept album, meaning it tells a story.

And it is really good, and I'm hoping the novelization, written by a friend of Neil Peart's, Kevin Anderson, he's a famous sci-fi writer (though I never heard of him and I read a lot.)

The story is about, from the brief shreds I've been able to gather, about a guy who starts dabbling in alchemy and steampunk and then goes on some sort of journey.

Actually, Here's a summary according to a quote used on Wikipedia: In a young man's quest to follow his dreams, he is caught between the grandiose forces of order and chaos. He travels across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy, with lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnivals, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life.

That was a quote from Anderson about the album's story.

That's one of the best Tessa's I've seen on DA. Actually no, THE best Tessa in your style of drawing. Seriously, you got her hair, eye color and soft expression PERFECTLY. This is really beautiful. :)

This has to be the best representation of Tessa I have seen so far. She's pretty, but not too pretty, like the book says. I love the way you drew her hair and the necklace. It's awesome. I wonder if you will tackle Jem and Will.

I'd love to try. Will's more of a challenge when I sketch them than Jem is, for some reason. Hahah. Thanks. C:
