Working Anime Boston, same as every year. COME. BUY OUR BUTTONS.
So as I adjust to a system that is a whole lot more responsive to my tablet movements, I’ve been trying to see if I can’t work through my shaky hands (bad nerves and carpal tunnel is a fun combo…) and try inking on the computer again. Since this little work sketch didn’t scan well, I used it as practice.
I’ll color it later.
I *was* going to continue the Knight!verse crack of the last doodle, but apparently I am not allowed to listen to Steam Powered Giraffe’s cover of Rihanna’s diamonds while drawing, because I came to the conclusion that Miles Edgeworth would be a closet steampunk fan. And Franziska would occasionally enjoy the ….foolish fools and their Victorian ways.
I drew the line at Gumshoe, though.
I was hoping I could find a picture in my full steampunk gear on Saturday, but I realized that staying behind the Button Me Up! booth made the chance of anyone having a pic of me is nigh impossible. *sigh*
So, if anyone by the off chance anyone has a picture of a redhead in a black and red corset and a antique lace shirt, let me know?
The Smog City.
Still tweaking, but it’s finally starting to come along. A little grittier than my usual work.
Still working on this- as you can see by the lack of background- but I’m having fun with this girl. A bit more punk than my usual steampunk pieces.
So, the mockup for my ACTUAL costume this year, The Pinstripe (Steampunk Witch).
The hat is done (see here). The shirt is from a gothic lolita dress I own (and learned the hard way lolitas are horrible people), and the skirt was bought to compliment it- here it’s layered over a plain black skirt because exposing that much leg worries me.
The wand is in the works from a 5 1/2 foot copper pipe, a glass ornament and pipe fittings. I am experimenting with floral lights to light it.
I still need the gloves,
So I’m going to New York Comic Con for fun this year, and I’ve been trying to work on a costume that I might be able to reuse. While I adore the steampunk aesthetic, I wanted to do something unusual in the style.
One of the thoughts came about as I was reading parts of “Journal of a Plague Year”. While this is probably not going to be made in time for NYCC, I may have to try it in the future.
