13x16, oil on mounted paper.

A side project painting that I started a month ago. I wanted to do a clockwork dragon, like the creatures I used to see in Everquest. Of course anyone who sees it says, "OMG a steampunk dragon!" .

I really enjoyed painting the background, having some carefree brush strokes. The body of the dragon was giving my some problems, so I had to make a maquette to help model the surface. I am pretty happy with the outcome.

It's nice, but why are all steampunk things brass? What's wrong with iron or gold or steel? I don't know much about steampunk stuff, only read leviathan series
