Her captain is coming alongside, the boat pilot having very properly brought it around under the stern gallery.

I very wanted to convey grace, scale and motion, I wanted her to be beautiful. Sometimes steampunk can be a bit heavy-metal, which is cool, but I was thinking of how light and graceful the Eiffel Tower is.

Done in mixed media in Pigma technical pens, Prismacolor markers, Sharpie pen & poster paint markers and guache, thinned with water and sometimes tears. :-)

Hail to my friend Matt who shot the original on his 18 MP Canon photograph-making-machine.

A few close-ups will be forthcoming.

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. It's a crazy mix of pen&ink, guache and watercolor. I kept running to different things to get the right effects.

Thanks again!

I love the elegance of this ship. I also have to say that I'm impressed that you made such a unique ship in what is already a unique niche.

Reminiscent of the medical frigate in ESB, but way cooler!

Thank you very much for the kind words! I loved that old frigate when I was little (another deviant reminded me it was a Nebulon B ??...strong SW-geek powers, that one).

Cheers!
