I stumbled across an interesting picture on the internet; wonderful eyes. So I adapted it for my illustration. Added googles (of course!) and a backpack, changed the hair (more spiky), messed with the bodice, added a belt and a steam tank. The arms were also at a weird perspective due to lens distortion so I changed them and added a tattoo. Once that was in place I wondered where I should stage my little steampunk girl. Since it was Thanksgiving, (in the U.S.) I decided to stick her in the year 1621 with my webcomic character, added some out buildings and a tree and wrote a brief piece of flash to set the story.
This was a fun holiday distraction.
