I always suspected that dodos weren't as peaceful and gentle as they say.  I wonder if there are any ninja dodos....

Seriously decent bit of art, feathers are so hard to do, realstically or in a cartoon nature; yours look great  ;)

This is Captain Amy Darling, a character in a steampunk story I'm writing.

Yes she looks like Zoe Wanamaker, it's intentional. I find it much easier to write a character with a particular actor in mind.

She's not the heroine, but a major character. I'll be doing some more of these, I'm sure it'll help having them on the wall when I do the dialogue rewrites later.

That looks wonderful.  It also looked a bit Judi Dench to me.

Thanks folks, the funny thing about that. 
When I've been writing the character she looks like Zoe Wanamaker, but insists on talking like Judi Dench at least sometimes.

Why is there the hebrew letter Aleph in the background? lol

Nice drawing

The alpeh is part of a system of runes used in the story. It's also used in math theory as the cardinality of the set of all natural numbers. So that's kind of the smallest measurement of infinity.

I've also used it to represent a subversive organisation, the point through which all information flows. T haven't quite decided whether the alpeh badge is just for the organisation's number one, or the organisation as a whole.

Sweet.
Just so you know, hebrew letters have a whole mathmatical system called Gematria.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria

Decimal    Hebrew    Glyph
1    Aleph    א
2    Bet    ב
3    Gimel    ג
4    Daled    ד
5    He    ה
6    Waw    ו
7    Zayin    ז
8    Heth    ח
9    Teth    ט
10    Yodh    י
20    Kaph    כ, ך
30    Lamed    ל
40    Mem    מ, ם
50    Nun    נ, ן
60    Samekh    ס
70    Ayin    ע
80    Pe    פ, ף
90    Tsadi    צ, ץ
100    Qoph    ק
200    Resh    ר
300    Shin    ש
400    Taw    ת
500    Kaph    ך
600    Mem    ם
700    Nun    ן
800    Pe    ף
900    Tsadi    ץ

There you go, it would be pretty sweet to incorporate that.

Show me what you can come up with xD

You're going to have to wait for the rewrites though, no one sees the first draft.  ;)


Title: Re: All right then
Post by: Drewid on February 09, 2008, 10:12:04 PM
He he.  I did a Portal / Dali thing for PC gamer issue 184.   The editor was over at Valve and showed them my stuff.

I had am email from Doug Lombardi asking if they could print one to stick up on the office wall.

Pleased me that did. ;D

Congrats.  I assume that's print only right now and not viewable online?

Lets see if I can find it on the site somewhere *Cackles*

Damnet.

Not there I'm afraid.  It was a straight commision so it was never on there.   They want "the girl with the pearl earring" for the next one so I'll have to yoink it or stick a big copyright watermark on it.

Done for some friends going to 'Burning Man'.   They're going as the "Bomb Bay Tea Company", and it put me in mind of the victorian tea clippers, so I did a steampunk take on it.

I made it to print up to 40" x 30" (Yes the original is 4961 x 3508) from my deviantart page.

Drew,

Very nice man!  Would you like to see this in 3D?  ;D  Would be a fun project!


Title: Re: All right then
Post by: toand on March 28, 2008, 07:41:05 AM
That looks just great Drew! Cant believe the resolution?!

digitalfog: Yes, this would look really cool in 3d!  ;D


Title: Re: All right then

I'm in the middle of building an airship in 3d, wasn't planning any sails on that one but I might change my mind.

So Drew, are you a steampunk kinda guy? I was thinking about trying to make my Techniq cover into the steampunk style...


Title: Re: All right then
Post by: Switz on March 29, 2008, 10:02:06 PM
Yeah, Drew is.

He is writing a steampunkish novel.

Oh Yes. I do like a bit of victorian anachronism, especially the stuff with more of a sense of humour.

For instance one of the guys on the brass goggles forum is building himself a victorian space helmet, but, and this is important, it's tall enough for him to wear a top hat in it.  That appeals to my sense of humour.

Turning my build a bit more wood-and-brass is on my enormous list of stuff to do. I'd love to see on done with that style.

Details on this are beautiful, Drew. I admire that steampunk view on the world. It's so familiar in design but fresh at the same time.
