Beauté impossible

:iconironmitten: did this simply wonderful piece, transposing Audry Hepburn into a steampunk world

I just loved it, wished I'd thought of it, and thus decided to do a piece inspired by it. I certainly can't compete with the astonishing level of skill IronMitten shows, but I had fun doing it.

Photo-reference was used in the pencils stage for Ingrid as there's no way I'm good enough to get a close likeness of the beautiful Ms Bergman from memory.

This is so awesome. Cyberpunk and "Casablanca"...well actually "Barb Wire" did that. But you did it far better!

Great work, I wish I was as good as this with Illustrator

Thanks! It's just untold years of doing little Illustrator buttons, icons and doodles!

"Casablanca" in steampunk form, that's an awesome idea! This is a very cool picture. I love the monical you gave her. Ingrid's expression works very well with this picture.

The only critique I can really give here is that Ingrid's pin doesn't quite blend in with the rest of her. Maybe next time use more shading, to blend everything in together.

Thanks! You may be right about the pendant. I wanted it to stand out, but the juxtaposition of the colours onto the predominant greyscale may make it pop too much.

No problem. Well I woldn't worry about it; it's a minor detail that doesn't hurt the picture.

Oh those black and white tones <3
I love the whole concept of it, with the steampunk items/features done in color :D
Absolutely brilliant, she looks very beautiful :)

Thanks very much! IronMitten should take the credit for the basic idea - his Audrey Hepburn piece was what inspired my take.
JesnCin's avatar
You're welcome!
Ah yes his piece, I remember bumping into it a while ago :D

That looks like a Steampunkish character I was dabbling with and as such is how about other stars of stage and screen in unfamiliar hero or genre styles ?
JonathanWyke's avatar
That's a good idea. I think I'm waaaay too lazy to do it tho ;p

Very cool.
You were inspired by the Audrey image and concept and made it your own.
Nicely done.
