Here Comes Miss Banford by *keiiii has the inspiring spirit I personally look for in a piece. Shows effort, a well developed idea, a beautiful and appropiated design, and a simply gorgeous colouring. Also, I just wonder how hard has been to draw that perspective of a complex machine like that. So amazing!

Here Comes Miss Banford

1208x1024 folks can use it as their desktop wallpaper, if they wish. :) See how I did this pic: [link]

EDIT: Changed the category because "wallpaper" made it sound like I just grabbed some image from somewhere and edited it, when I had in fact painted it from scratch. ^^; You can still use it as your wallpaper if you want!


Has any of you stolen something when you were little?

I have. One of my uncles had this pocket watch. It was gold-tone with a little bit of patina here and there, and it had all these beautiful gears showing under the watch hands. I had never seen anything like it. If that wasn't love at first sight, I don't know what is. And without a second thought, I... I... ELOPED WITH IT. (Fortunately, the watch was super cheap or something, and he didn't really mind me having it.)

And you know what? I still have that watch after all these years. And I still love steampunk to death. Now I finally have some steampunk-y-ness in my gallery to show my love!

About the character: this is Kimry Banford, a girl who's got a bit of a mad scientist in her. I imagine this is the engine room of some kind of a Tech Fortress of Evil Doom, and she's about to try something completely insane with it... building, installing and activating a self-destruct mechanism...? >_>

Kimry VS Mr. Doomsday Machine -- Round One, Fight!

All your Kimry belongs to :iconsongjewel:

Appreciate seeing this mechanical scene with her optimistic expression under the lighting.

I love this! I have for years! I really HOPE you create some more awesome images of Miss Banford!

I would love to! But since she's not my character, I'd need to get in touch with her creator to find out more about her ^^

Very nice and detailed! I get more of a submarine engine vibe personally, but that's probably just me.

While I am floored by your perspective skills, it is the details I think I love most. I like the lantern and I adore her bag. I want one.

Love the character, love the setting, love the details... I just love this piece. It is well thought out and very intricate in its little pieces and mechanisms.

Also, I want her purse/workbag.

Thanks. This is probably my most ambitious piece to date; I hope to do something even "bigger" soon, though. It's a great thing to outdo oneself.

omg. now THAT is detail. i would kill to see the process of how you came up with the composition and how you decided where the lighting sources (3 light sources!!! just like in the movies. overachiever ;D !) would be, etc. those are two areas i really need to work on... not to mention just rendering things out so professionally. ffff <3
keiiii's avatar
There are four light sources... XD The pale lavender light to the right!

As far as composition goes, I go by trial & error and gut feeling. It would be great to get some formal training on composition D:
