Captain Kelly: Steampunked by cirrusepix Captain Kelly: Steampunked by cirrusepix
:icondasutobani: has been working on a story about a womanizing pirate who is transformed into a woman by a scorned voodoo witch. I thought I'd try a new take on the idea replacing pirates of the high seas with pirates of the sky.

I've always had a small thing for the steampunk genre filled with giant gears, steam power and Victorian principles. Since the idea of a pirate chauvinist also works when changed to a sky pirate in an age when women are still repressed and colonization is still rampant, I think the idea still translates well. So DB, here's Captain Kelly complete with corset, goggles, and Victorian boots!

You've definitely done a great job here =D I swear pirates of the sky exist O_o

They do in a few animes anyway lol And you know what's scary? You got the design of clothes they'd probably wear *_*

I figured it was a new direction, but still stayed true to the initial idea.

Dude, That's awesome! I love the different theme, and kind of surprised she works in steampunk as well! Oddly enough she does wear a corset in a later issue (I have designs sitting around). (Goggles tho...hmm...do make her hair look sexier)

Pending finals week this week (which I plan to do all in one day), I will finish that thing I promised you I would, (50% done, it's modeled, just need to do the textures.) and then the art factory is reopening full time.

I hate these classes that sap all my time for study of subjects I'll never use. Going to need time a little time to catch up.

Thank God I'm starting my animation major next semester, all I'll be doing is drawing.

So give me like a week or so you'll have what you asked for and we can talk details.

I'll talk to you in the next few days to hash out what I am looking for. Sorry I've been a bit slow on it. Finals need to come first.

I'm glad you liked the re-design. I think it still captures the idea of the story, but pushes it into a new direction. Just don't ask me to draw the iron clad steampowered airship.
