Steampunk Test Flight by aruarian-dancer Steampunk Test Flight by aruarian-dancer
This was done for the Enchanted Visions Project's theme "Clockwork Fantasia" (Nov. 2012). An intrepid inventor takes her mechanical wings and owl for a test flight in the sunset.

I've previously done two steampunk pieces and they were both dark in theme as well as color scheme. So from the beginning, I wanted this one to be more lighthearted (like the way Miyazaki movies makes us feel) and fun. She looks like the kinder, gentler, and certainly non-aggressive twin of my "Steampunk Dark Angel". I didn't pick up on that until I was far into this illustration. Designing the owl was a lot of fun. Overall, I had fun with this piece. Hope you like it.

:giggle: The owl here reminds me of Bobo, the little mechanical owl from the original Clash of the Titans film.

This is really cool~! I love the shades of gold and the girl! The background is great, too~ The owl is giving me deja vu, do you happen to play Poptropica? One of the games has an owl that looks A LOT like that...
