a really good art friend of mine is hosting a steampunk journal swap. i didn't sign up for because when she posted it i have to say i just don't feel i have steampunk in my genes.  i've never attempted anything like this before so it was it quite a stretch for me.  the hostess did ask me if i would consider doing a page for her journal and i said i would but i have to say it made me nervous, especially after seeing the other journal page entries in the swap. everyone has done such incredible work. you could only use black, cream, rust, white, brown tones to complete the journal page.  her theme of what she was looking for she told me was "sky gypsy". i finished these up this morning and i'm waiting to hear from her if they are what she had in mind.

  3. What a challenge this must have been for a colorist such as yourself. But you outdid yourself, Roc; the details work and textures in all are just incredible. I've wanted to attempt the steampunk style but have, so far, been too intimidated!
