at first i looked at this going .
Errgh another dolfie shot.
i was glad to discover i was wrong . the detailing in this peice is amazing! from the smoke ( which i also didn't notice at first) , to the cracked glass heading down to the lacing on the top.
the shot works well as a head shot. i personally would like to see a silver version of steampunkery.
maybe something to think of next time.
everyone things that there was only browns and golds in the 1900's... i wish people would look at some of the fabrics of the time...
otherwise a amazing peice! i look forward to your next peices!

Visually this is amazing, stunning and cool. The skin is flawless and very well lit. The detail is there and invites the eye to explore the scene and imagine the story behind it.

The one place where I will pick this image apart is the smoke. Why does the smoke at the top go up, but the smoke at the side trails backwards? Relative air movement should be the same.The effect of steam may have worked better, in little puffs.

The background is always important and the dim sunburst in the back speaks to a polluted London of Victorian times or a nuclear winter of an altered world, either way it fits right in.

As I said the skin is flawless and smooth with a bright glow to it and while the scene doesn't covey any form of sexiness the peek of breast adds a little titillation. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":p" title=":p (Lick)" />

The costume looks very cool and I wish I could see more of it. The goggles are to die for, the cracked lens adds to the mood of the image. The strap at the top I'm not to sure about, but at the same time its not totally out of place. The vents at the top, even without the smoke, are interesting.

Overall the image is fantastic and has super character to it.

The smoke is behaving realistically. It looks as though the effect were achieved using actual incense cones mounted in the casings of the goggles.

This really is a stunning piece. I am currently in love with Steampunk and this just hit me.
Her expression is fantastic. Her tilt in her head gives innocence and a cute touch which is then contrasted by the maturity and the 'sexy' way she poses her lips.
The goggles are awesome, however I wonder if she really can see anything out of them <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)" />.
Her clothing I'm guessing is the work of some fantastic designer, because her entire costume has an impressive continuity that is often hard to maintain when recreating a past time in this modern time.
The editing of the smoke looks fantastic, if you hadn't have said that someone was the editor I wouldn't have picked it up.
Great work and keep it up.

Take what you will.

Hey Jester,
thanks for saying that. I really appreciate reading your criticism!

The clothing and the googles are self-made :)
It's great that you guessed it was made by some fantastic designer :)

Thanks again!

No worries :D Now you've accepted my critique I can go through the rest of your gallery... I make it a habit not to know who the artist is or how many pageviews or anything about the artist so that the critique has no "oh wow they're popular I better be nice about the critique".... Haha. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D

Well then, my comment still stands... 'Deviant of Many Talents'.

No worries :D

I liked this photo of yours quite much. I wonder what kind of aesthetic this could be named. People dressed such as burning man people. What is the general name of this tissue?
