If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s a genre based on old victorian style clothing with a sci-fi twist. If that makes sense. Think top hats, corsets, ray guns, cogs and goggles. Awesome stuff.
So I was inspired to paint this young lady.. by the name of Kato who is an amazing fashion designer/creator and you should check out her site. www.steampunkcouture.com Go there. Now. But don’t forget to come back. Actually no scrap that, finish here then go there.
This is my latest painting, bit of a play with new ideas and the shading on the face is a bit dodge. Anyhoo I’m working on a few things at the mo.. one is something I’ve always wanted to do but just never got around to it. You know how it is. Until now! What is it? Well.. I’ll post some pics soon. For now I must rinse the dye from my hair before it burns my scalp and makes me bald!
