    ROUND #233:: Steampunk Aphrodite


    DESCRIPTION


    Steampunk Aphrodite


    As you all know it’s Valentine’s day tomorrow, so it’s time for a ChoW special! This week we challenge you to come up with an original design for the Goddess of Love: Aphrodite.

    Born from the sea, Aphrodite was so beautiful that in fear of jealousy, Zeus had her married to the ugly Hephaistos. She however had many lovers on the side, ranging from gods like Ares, to mere humans like Anchises. Many stories and myths exist around Aphrodite, and she has equivalents in many different cultures.

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

    This week we want you to come up with an original new design for Aphrodite, Steampunk style!

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

    We want to see a design that reflects her character and symbolic meaning, but is fresh and surprising. We don’t want the typical half nude women in white flowy garments.


    Design a Steampunk Aphrodite!



    • Both “steampunk” and “goddess of love” must be visible in the design.
    • Think beyond the pretty nude girl and design an interesting character with personality.


    Good luck!

    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.

    Here we go

    My Aphrodite is an talented innovator who modifies hearts to help people to fall in love. Her belt is not magic but there's a third arm hidden in it, which helps her with her work.
    Afraid of her beauty, her father married her very young to an ugly and rough blacksmith. The passionate young woman locked her own heart away, that was the only way how she could stay with a man she doesn't love.
    But it seems that her little Armor helpers found the key

    Unfortunately i ran out of time so i quickly finished this up somehow.
    I got rid of the background, it got crowded and i found it was distracting,
    so the steampunk aspect of this is very subtle
    thanks for the comments and help to everyone who did^^

    I feel a bit bad for not coming up with something better. But since I spent all day painting it and think I have learned something - I want to submit it anyways.

    Awesome work everyone. This week's prompt was really difficult

    Edit: Sorry, I was in a rush and completely forgot to save the file with the correct name. I hope it's not too much of a problem

    Just hope it's steam punk-y enough.

    One of my first introductions to steampunk was through a friend who was created a character for a game, and she was an inventor. This was before it became a fashion (not that i have anything against it, I love the fashions.) so I wanted to use that as inspiration.

    I was going to use the Birth of Venus for a composition but I decided to simplify it. Originally a whole robot man was laying on the table but I decided to break him up into pieces.

    Originally she was going to be wiping dirt/soot off her face but when I started playing with lighting I realized she could be shading her eyes.
