Zeppelin Girl by suburbanbeatnik Zeppelin Girl by suburbanbeatnik
Those who've glanced at my updated website will recognize this as the new splash page. It's the cover for the print edition of Astonishing Adventures Magazine #6, featuring Evgenie, the villainess from Chris Dabnor's steampunk story "The Eternal Sleeper." To understand why she's in Siberia with a shovel, you'll have to read the story. You can read it here: [link]

The print edition with my cover is on sale at Amazon: [link]

I'm so late on commenting on your work, but it's great to see more artwork in your gallery! Hey, yeah, I recognize this from your website. (You have a really great website!) I love her outfit; I'd totally wear something like that. I like the "icy-ness" of this painting; it really does give off that cold, winter feeling. The colours look great...I particularly love how you painted the sky!

Thank you! It was tricky, putting a redhead in a cool red against a winter background, without it looking all red, white and blue. But I was able to figure out the colors, thanks to Ilya Repin!

Nothing like crinoline for one's Siberian expedition, eh? ;P

You know how I feel about this one. I don't even know why I worried it would look too American red white and blue.

Hey, I know what I'm doing! ;P But it did help to look at Ilya Repin for ideas on handling the sky and the snow. (Have you ever seen his work? He's amazing!)
