Thanksgiving by vanettda Thanksgiving by vanettda
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.

I've been away from dA for a while as I try to turn little pictures into mortgage payments. Thanks for the comment. I hopefully will be posting new stuff soon (besides my cute monster contest entry!) This picture is a based on a bunch of composite reference shots. The angle of the piece was interesting.

Thanks for the comment!

Well, I just stalked your gallery, so to say, and I think your artwork is stellar, and you possess a talent I haven't seen before. c:
It inspires me, almost, except for the fact that I draw awful manga, and I hardly ever post anything I do... XD
