Captain Persephone Blackmore, world class navigator, Steamship Aviatrix.


I've been wanting to do a steampunk piece for awhile, and *mjranum-stock put up a fantastic stock piece that I just couldn't resist.

This is just my version of steampunk (Victorian Science-Fiction) - so please, any experts on the genre, go easy on me. ;) Also, I have no idea if this should go in fantasy, or science fiction. LOL So.... I put it in Sci-Fi. The miscat elves will surely tuck it in the right place if I'm wrong. :)

This is steampunk dont worry or with the other name Victorian science fiction. Too help with your work check the era of Art Deco can give some boost to further work in this sub genre of sci fi.

How did you learn to make art like that?! It's amazing! I hope to one day be able to be at least a quarter of how well you can draw!>.<

Wow, very interesting! I love the costume, the image reminds me of the style Javiar Navarrete uses in his movies

"so please, any experts on the genre, go easy on me. "

The wonderful thing about steampunk is that you can do anything. There are no experts, only opinions.

Absolutely beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing.

I really dig the use of color and texture--and of course it's hard to go wrong with steampunk.
BalletBeachgirl25 Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Awesome! This image would soo cool on a rock band shirt.
BlkJade Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2008
Beautiful, love the darker colorings used...
giadrosich Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
My eyeballs are leaping for joy! Simply...delectable. I love the texturing on the background surfaces, and being an great fan of the genre (while knowing little about it, but I like what I know), this is really a treat.

it's so amazing :love:
Yzabel Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think I fell in love with this piece as soon as I saw it. I like how you made the character stand out while still blending, in terms of shades, with the overall color dominants of the picture as a whole. I'm not too much of a specialist in terms of steampunk, but I think it quite fits the mood anyway.
rockpunk92 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008
Steampunk?? So that's what you call that genre? i've wondered hehe this looks uber cool!!!
armawolf Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this is a slight departure for you, greater sexual undercurrent where there is usually a hint of whimsy , fantasy and romance.

When I saw your journal about steampunk I imagined it being steampunk in your traditional style.

I didn't expect you to challenge yourself like this.

I like.

Do more!
Foxfires Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you!! I love taking people by surprise...heheh. Actually, this took ME by surprise too! Little did I know I'd just fall head over heels for this genre so quickly. It just is such a cool style to explore and challenge myself with. I'm totally stoked that you noticed!!

I have another steampunk piece I've already made - of Kristina from Abney Park. I'll be posting that soon. ;) :D

Wow. You know what I think I've always liked best about your work is that it reminds me so much of classical paintings. Wonderful warm hues. Well done you. :-)

Bogbrush Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2008
Beautiful image, there's a warmth to this that reminds me of oak panelled libraries lit by an open fire where adventurers gather to tell tales.
