"Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye."

At last its done. I started this as a large ink sketch in the middle of last year. After the lines were finished (on A2), it was scanned and all the lines redone for clarity. since then I've been steadily colouring it little by little.

I have a few details I might put up too

Ink + Photoshop - 40 Hours.

Edit: Updated with correct colour balance

I can see how hard you've worked to make every detail come out perfectly.
It is an absolutely stunning work of art.
The subject is so creative and brilliantly
brought to life.
The shading is rich with depth.
I think this was a very tedious and laborious undertaking.
The result is masterful
and magical...
I'm completely enamored with with this piece .
Were it not so time consuming , I would love to see it as a series.

Reminds me of Metropolis and other old silent movies.

Creepy, but very beautiful and well done!

The detail is amazing on all of the small mechanical parts.
