Steampunk - To sail the sky by Jacklionheart Steampunk - To sail the sky by Jacklionheart
I was always a great fan of Science-Fiction, but I also loved historic stories and settings. Jules Verne managed to bring those worlds together, you can say he is the father of Steampunk.

This is my first contribution to this very special genre. I used some reference photos from my lovely wife. The gown design is made by myself. Have you ever tried to paint striped satin? It's really a challenge, I can tell you!

As usual painted with Photoshop, no cheats, just painting about 30hrs.

Prints are availible here and soon at Zazzle and Artflakes. Thanks for watching.

Edit: I have repainted the face and the fence as well as some overall color adjustments, It fit's much better now for my taste.

Jack

yeah all that is quite cool and all but also kinda unispired today ^^
I also like the Steampunk setting, but I turned to Dieselpunk with my last story I liked that cold industrial world even more ^^

Hi, fantastic work, especially on the dress, great folds, and those stripes can't be easy :)

Thank you so much. Yeah I could have painted it with an uni colour, but iI sometimes need to force myself to learn new techniques.
