First Steampunk :D

This is the first Steampunk image I've drawn.  I absolutely love Steampunk and I'll hope fully do some more.

I actually started drawing this image back in April then got distracted doing other things.  I finally had chance to finish her at the weekend.  She's called Victoria and you can find her in my shop SheepSki Designs on Etsy - click here!

I've coloured the image and background with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.

The image comes just as Victoria on her own.  When I was printing her off I thought it would be cool to create my own Steampunk background so I used some Tim Holtz cogs and sketched three huge cogs into the background.

Once I'd finished the colouring I distressed the image, a piece of brown design paper from Lili of the Valley and some black card stock.  Once I'd put the card togehter I sketch a biro border in them added some metal embellishments - Tim Holtz cogs, sprockets etc. of course :D
