    CKLamb: That's exactly what I want. But maybe I'll stylize it a bit for aesthetic's sake, dunno.

    CKLamb - Thanks. I'm going for a bit more muscle- something you'd more likely see on a dancer or acrobat.

    Some nice looking entries already! Pixel.. I think that idea of mind contorl is an awesme one, but be careful it doesn't end up looking too... sci fi! Maybe something more sensual arranged around a sexy headpiece might work better?

    MajorTom: Liking the pose, there's some nice lines in her legs... watch the shapes in the background though, they're ruining the illusion, the curtain comes off feeling very unnatural.. try having the sweep be less circular in the middle... perhaps study some images of curtains to see what I mean... the weight will pull that curve more to the bottom, where it's gathered.

    Dimagyan: Loving that sketch... there's a really lovely feel to it - almost Degas-like. Maybe you could choose one to bring out as the character through lighting it strongly over her, or bringing one to the foreground?

    Matt B: loving the tension in her legs! The outstretched hand looks tilted a little too far away from us to be comfortable - might look more natural if you could see the thumb and palm instead?

    Here's my sketch so far.. very inspired by the likes of Gerome and Leighton, hoping to keep some of the arabian/persian feel to it as well as the steam punk elements - excuse the shoddy sketchwork here, I'm half doped up on painkillers with a tooth abscess - fun fun.

    zephyri - Thanks for the crit. Your sketch's looking very nice. Something about the arm on the right seems off - like it's not thick enough compared to the other arm. Also his foot seems broken. Nice idea tho and I like where it's going.

    Zephyri: I'll watch out for getting to sci-fi-ish but I really like the idea something being attached to the spine or at least the base of the skull. Some kind of mind-control helmet might get a little B-movie

    Lovely sketch btw, some odds 'n ends are still a bit wonky but you'll work that out and I really like the composition

    Matt B : Yeah, the sketch is pretty rough at the minute, will most likely work volumes out once I put solid colour down... his foot probably looks broken thanks to the folds of fabric over the ankle joint, giving it that odd 90 degree angle.. might have to tweak those if I can't get them looking right in colour!

    Pixeltuner: Aye, you might be right.. was thinking something like this though.. more like an ornate hairpiece, maybe with small needle/wires going into the side of the face?

    Zephyri: Hmmm, interesting... I'll be trying some different things then, and see what works best.
    Oh and good luck on the tooth

    No! You can have goggles if you want, and Steampunk is mainly Victorian. There's no embargo on things like that!

    Definitely in for this one.

    In looking for steampunk design references I came across this blog which so far seems to be pretty awesome and have a great amount of steampunk costume designs for aesthetic reference. Could be useful to those like me who aren't too familiar with steampunk let alone trying to design something relating to it.

    http://steampunkcostume.com/

    I find looking at the 'fashion' category yields some pretty great material.

    Now that I've taken a bunch of time getting familiarized with both categories of the assignment, time to start sketching.

    Pixeltuner - I love the idea, but I wonder if you can turn her some so we can see her face... I kinda feel lost as far as her character without seeing it at the moment.

    Jessi: Well.. Honestly I think the illustration in itself is stronger this way, but you're right about the lack of character since this is a CHOW, so I'm still kinda bummed out on that. :/

    Just redraw the head looking back over her shoulder. All we need is a profile at the least.

    Edit: something like this.
