East Sun, West Moon WIP

Part of =elfgrove's & =Asatira's Steampunk Fairy Tales universe.

The peasant girl, Johanne Westgard, based on East of the Sun and West of the Moon --costume design copyright © =elfgrove/B.R. Shropshire, designed specifically for ~earthstar.

:snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake: :snowflake:

The character is the peasant girl from the folk tale East of the Sun and West of the Moon. The design is based on some direction from and a photo of ~earthstar and a coat she already owns. It was a lot of fun putting together a design for this.

Rather than the horses, I've given her a flying machine--seen in the background, and instead of going from horse to horse begging directions, she has an aetheric compass connected to a mechanical golden bird to lead her way to the castle East of the Sun and West of the Moon.

Color still to come.

Have you ever read the book East? It's based off of this story and it's really good!^^

You can buy it in the Teenage section of your local Barnes and Noble if you want.

I don't read a lot of YA books. It's a bit under my reading level.

This is so cool. I love all these steampunk fairy tales you and your friends are doing. It's so wonderful to see all these fairy tales come to light and then have the interesting twist of steampunk. Awesome.

(Wow. Are you serious?)

(Dead serious. It might take me a while to complete, but I definitely mean it.)

(I truly don't want to trouble you, but I'll be honest, the offer is hard to resist. However, I want to inquire beforehand, is it possible to tweak the fairytale of my choosing or does it have to be entirely faithful to the source? I have an idea in mind, but am fearful of it being more loosely based on the fairytale than following through the story and therefore rendering it useless to the standards you've set for the world you and your friends created. As for the completion of it, I am most patient as I'm aware that you are very busy. Your work is also worth waiting for. But also, as I mentioned before, I don't want to trouble you.)
