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)
