Steam Mechanic by Red-Fallout Steam Mechanic by Red-Fallout
Steam Punk and tough girls rock! This was done in photoshop and painter IX, I used about 4 different shading styles for the whole picture, I'm still trying to find one that I really like, maybe one of these days I'll have a nice coherrent picture. Still not sure if I like how I did the steam though.

Sketching and inking: painter IX ~4 hours
Painting: photoshop cs and painter IX ~7 hours

(edit: fixed steam up a bit)
(edit 2: made the mechanic a bit more toothy)

I used to be a steamengine fan, I didn't know there are people who are devoted to steam engines, and I still love them. I have steam-power inventions of my own in my head. :D


A steam-power electric generator, fit for people's home! :D
But my ideas stunk a bit. :(

This rocks! I wish I could offer you some criticism, but I'm a writer, not an artist. Lovin' this though--especially the bend in the wrench. Shows you how hard she's trying. haha

I'm developing a pen and paper roleplaying game based in a Steampunk-world. Would you mind if I used this as art? I'm in desperate need of inspiration and I absolutely love this picture!

This picture is one of my favorites of yours, Red-Fallout. The color motif and steam effects scream HEAT and with the copper metal background, I feel like anything I woul touch in the background would be hot as hell. Beads of sweat or a sheen on her skin might be a good addition.

The girl looks pleasanyly Rubenesque and kind of reminds me as a redheaded Rosie the Riveter. She looks fierce, gritty, and sexy. The teeth were an excellent addition (never saw how it looked before, but I do like the teeth) and her dynamic pose, the bending wrench, her flying ponytail all give a feeling of urgency and straining.

holy! T____T you pick those programs up quick! fast learner~? oh wow x_x i could never even ATTEMPT to do that. don't your eyes hurrrrttt >___> eeeeesh. those colours rock though. and the steam looks very real!

i like esp. the strands of hair she has :3 though, you should fill in her mouth, unless she's clenching her teeth, then you should add a little black to each side instead of drawing each tooth :o

hmm, good suggestion about the teeth, I added in some shading earlier, but I think it got lost in the steam. As for the eye question, they don't hurt, but my fingers sure do =P And don't be silly Mura, you're a very good artist, it took me a year and a half or so to get any good with photoshop, once you can do that, you can pick up a program like painter or OpenCanvas easily. Keep up your beautiful work! =)
