Description

My entry for *nJoo's 2D Rock-off contest. It's a bi-weekly contest that's part of the Starock contest he's co-hosting with `zemotion, so if you're interested check out his journal for info on the 2D art portion of the contest, and her journal for info on the photography portion of the contest. Thanks to both of them for hosting something so fun. :)

As for this, hmm. The theme was to draw a fairytale steampunk style. I've never done a full steampunk painting before, and now I know why. It. Takes. Forever. :-P Goodness knows, I love doing textures, but I think I'm all textured out for a while. Sheesh!

The usual. Start to finish in Photoshop. Used Google for loose refs of swallows, piping, and aviator outfits. Textures were done via a combination of *leventep's, my own, and Photoshop's default brushes.

What a wonderful piece of artwork.  I'm just coming across it now, and was saddened to learn that the artist had passed away.  My condolences.
