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 ^^

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.

Holyhell, dude
That texture is wicked.
I was thinking to myself
'No fucking way that's supposed to be silk'
And then Boom.
It's satin
Which I guess...I was close enough
Regardless, you rocked it, dude!

As often when it comes to your gallery really good job here, really good work on the dress with few parts folded, we found the steampunk at background and in the character style and wearing. nothing is bad in this picture in my opinion. It would be nice if i could painted her like this in this one.

Thank you Rémi, I am currently repainting the face and the fence as i never was happy with it. That happens sometimes, no problem.

I have put you on my watchlist too, will see what happen next ;-)

This is good. I would say that maybe some elements (especially in the face) are rendered a little too smoothly. Maybe use some deeper colors or maybe get a little looser with the brush strokes.

I love the softness of the dress and the character in general. The contrast between her and the (really flat) fence kind of bothers me though. Seems like different painting styles

You are right, I never liked that fence too, maybe it is time to replace it ;-)

I love the textures on everything and all of the high detail in her dress!  I think there's a bit of a clash between how she's lit in comparison to everything else around her.  It's almost as if the light source is coming from around the viewer, but the light source in the image is from the far right.
