My entry for *nJoo's 2D Rock-off contest. It's a bi-weekly contest that's part of the Starock contest he's co-hosting with `zemotion, so if you're interested check out his journal for info on the 2D art portion of the contest, and her journal for info on the photography portion of the contest. Thanks to both of them for hosting something so fun. :)

As for this, hmm. The theme was to draw a fairytale steampunk style. I've never done a full steampunk painting before, and now I know why. It. Takes. Forever. :-P Goodness knows, I love doing textures, but I think I'm all textured out for a while. Sheesh!

The usual. Start to finish in Photoshop. Used Google for loose refs of swallows, piping, and aviator outfits. Textures were done via a combination of *leventep's, my own, and Photoshop's default brushes.

I'm planning a tattoo in steampunk style and is searching for parts to it. Can you recommend some sites?

I'd like to make this a print about the same size in real life, any chance I can get a large sized file?

Your picture is wonferful! I was wondering, I'm bulding a forum on steam punk, and we're looking for avatars who can fit the style, and this picture this would be perfect for that. So i'm asking if we can use this picture for our website for an avatar? We gonna say that you are the creator of this picture, and put a like to your deviantart page. But we are poor and we can't pay you X) So, give me your opinion, and I hope you'll say yes!


N.B. I,m french, so my english is not wonderful X) And the forum is : . It's all in french, so probably you wont understand.
