1208x1024 folks can use it as their desktop wallpaper, if they wish. :) See how I did this pic: [link]

EDIT: Changed the category because "wallpaper" made it sound like I just grabbed some image from somewhere and edited it, when I had in fact painted it from scratch. ^^; You can still use it as your wallpaper if you want!


Has any of you stolen something when you were little?

I have. One of my uncles had this pocket watch. It was gold-tone with a little bit of patina here and there, and it had all these beautiful gears showing under the watch hands. I had never seen anything like it. If that wasn't love at first sight, I don't know what is. And without a second thought, I... I... ELOPED WITH IT. (Fortunately, the watch was super cheap or something, and he didn't really mind me having it.)

And you know what? I still have that watch after all these years. And I still love steampunk to death. Now I finally have some steampunk-y-ness in my gallery to show my love!

About the character: this is Kimry Banford, a girl who's got a bit of a mad scientist in her. I imagine this is the engine room of some kind of a Tech Fortress of Evil Doom, and she's about to try something completely insane with it... building, installing and activating a self-destruct mechanism...? >_>

Kimry VS Mr. Doomsday Machine -- Round One, Fight!

All your Kimry belongs to :iconsongjewel:

Here Comes Miss Banford by *keiiii has the inspiring spirit I personally look for in a piece. Shows effort, a well developed idea, a beautiful and appropiated design, and a simply gorgeous colouring. Also, I just wonder how hard has been to draw that perspective of a complex machine like that. So amazing! ( Suggested by Atramina and Featured by archanN )

Very nice and detailed! I get more of a submarine engine vibe personally, but that's probably just me.

While I am floored by your perspective skills, it is the details I think I love most. I like the lantern and I adore her bag. I want one.
