Steampunk Inventor by Built4ever Steampunk Inventor by Built4ever
A small watercolor study of one my steampunk sketches, about 6" by 10" tall, original drawing done from a photo I took at the Dragon Con convention in Atlanta about 2 yrs ago. I modified her just a bit, including adding a wrench and a tool pouch for repairing complicated machinery that we regular people just don't understand. I changed the colors of the outfit substantially.

Here's the funny thing sir: That is actually a slightly modified portrait of a young lady at the Dragon-Con convention in downtown ATL, about 2 yrs ago. At that particular one, they assembled about 500 Steampunk people into a big room at one of the hotels. There were dozens more wandering around. I'm sure there was a mermaid in there somewhere. Attendance is like 50,000 or more now? Huge...

As I said before, itīs really nice to have something different with such quality among your pieces. Like thereīs no comfort zone for you XD I mean, you surely worked hard to reach the level you are in today, and itīs nice to see some other fruits from that hard work (itīs correct to say that in english? I donīt really know if you will understand that...)
Comgrats and itīs always a pleasure ^-^

Fruits of labor is right. And I LIKE TASTY FRUIT. Years of practice to get to a certain labor, but you always want to exceed previous work...
