*Full view please*

This is an original piece for my manga circle's artbook (which we'll be selling at Waicon 2006, in Perth).

*laughs* I swear my muse must be sadistic; every time I get an idea for an original piece it seems to necessitate me drawing horrendous amounts of detail (like the 20+ cogs in this picture). I love designing mechanical wings, it's something I wanted to give another try at doing.

Detail shots can be found here: Time Keeper Detail

...and step by step tutorial can be found here: Step by Step

-Approx 12 hours, over three days
-Photoshop CS2 & Wacom Tablet

Whoa that's awesome! I love the 20+ cogs! lol  And they definitely seem to be HIS wings because they're not strapped on anywhere. Something tells me there's much more to this picture than meets the eye  Clap

Love the light in this. I just don't understand how you can produce such a complex image in 12 hours of work. What's your secret? :D

I love the wings the most, also, the little girl's expression is priceless. You conveyed her surprise well.
