P.N.Caster-Airship Provisioner by ghostfire P.N.Caster-Airship Provisioner by ghostfire
[ Purchase on Etsy ]

Finished colored work for the GameX Steampunk art competition I submitted to. Pity I ran out of time before I could get quite this far, but I still won first place in the 2D/drawing category! I'll have to write up more on the backstory I cooked up while making this piece, but for a brief rundown on the characters, Gorm Oh is the guy in the front, trying to haggle his way to a better price. Cecily is the girl in white, riding in the mech's hand. Finally, Ran is the mech pilot.

Those sure are some robust stairs. Or else that mech doesn't weigh a whole crapton, like it looks.

Also, "Mechanical Sundries and Refined Lubricants" tickles me for some reason I can't quite grasp. Very nice work.

It's absolutely amazing, the amount of detail that's in here. I love all the little things - the cat in the window, the flying machines in the background~! *fawns*
Oh, my god, if only I could make my Hallowe'en costume just embody this, ha ha!

Dang, there's so much to love about this picture. The mech, the environment, and of course all of the little details like the little mech on the counter and the donation box for copper, bronze, and brass. Good job.

^^ Thank you. I think a lot of time my original art gets overlooked in the face of the fanart I do, but I put a tremendous amount of work into this one - lots of concept art and tons of time spent on the pencils.

And it definitely shows! I think that's just an intrinsic part of how dA works though. In example, my most popular piece is a fanart. Still, I feel when an original piece of work shows so much effort put into it, it deserves all the praise it can get.

Yeah. I added half a dozen or so alteration layers after "finishing" painting.

Half a dozen? Thats quite a lot. I usualy only end up with 2 or 3 extra myself. I still have a lot to learn though.

What else can I say? You just get in touch with details, expressions, colors (these colors express very well the epoque, even if there's a mecha around)
Congrats!

The mech took more more work than the rest of the picture combined - it's difficult to make something look like it actually might run on steam and gears instead of just magitech.
