Alexia Tarabotti / Lady Maccon by thor1971 Alexia Tarabotti / Lady Maccon by thor1971
I've always wanted to produce fan art for Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. This began in the middle of the night while I was awake after a coughing fit during Reading Week. I took an image of Sabrina Impacciatore, one of Carriger's picks for casting Alexia, and placed her head on a shot of model Yaya Han in steampunk attire in Sketchbook on my iPad. Then I went to work. I worked on it when I needed a break, or when I was up late and couldn't wind down. I don't know how many hours went into this, but it was an enjoyable process, learning the Sketchbook interface, and getting back to a skill I neglect often, but love dearly.

Very cool!

The only omission I can see is that it doesn't include her aqualine nose.

It is not at all how I personally pictured Alexia, but it is beautiful! I really like the detail of the dress, and the shadows and creases of the dress. And she is pretty. :)
