Hey there all. I have been even more inspired due to the December Bombshell Theme of Steampunk to get more steampunky all around.
I used this amazing Kenny K image to create my Steampunky vision. WILDLY enough I picked the colors and then found paper to match the colored image. I couldn't believe I found this paper. I nearly fell into shock when I did, and that it worked so well.
Because she is a lovely deep sea Steam gal, I decided to use a lot of BG7x series in addition to the browns. For the browns on her outfit I used the E7x and then the boots and leather stuff are E3x series. As always, when I want to show something sheer, I color the underneath part as if the sheer overlayer is not there. Then I use the color of the sheer items and color slightly over it to make sure that the underneath AND the sheer colors are mixed in.
I had a LOT of fun with the golden and metalic colors on this.
For the gold, I used Y11, layered with Y23, 26 and 28.. then I added some E07 in spots to add some red depths to it. For the silvery metal pieces / or pewter / iron???? I am not sure what the metal would be, I used the C1, 3, 5 and a little 7. Once I was done, I used a little bit of E04 to give it a patina. I LOVE love love overlaying the colors with the Copics. It gives such interesting depth and changes the look entirely.
I finished her up by adding enamel accents for buttons and stuff on the leather. To get them that tiny was REALLY hard... I did pretty good on most. HAHAHA. Because it is still going on, and it fits the Challenge of Anything Goes - - I am entering this into Kenny K's challenge this week.
Ok, Hope to see you back soon. Have a great day. I intend to as it is back to work tomorrow!!!!
