Work-A-Week 1 by silvertales Work-A-Week 1 by silvertales
I can't believe I forgot to post this one!

This was the first of the Work-A-Week pieces to come out of the January 2011 Sketch-A-Day 2011 project.

She's got no name and this piece has no title as of yet, so any and all suggestions are welcome!

The original and prints of this piece (A4, ink and marker for the original : 8x10" giclee for prints) are avialable. Pnote me if interested! :)

Thank you!

This was an early attempt at integrating an architectural background into a highly-focused figure piece, while retaining that my-spin-on-art-nouveau style. :) Glad it seemed to work!

Just got my hands on a print of this from A-Kon 22 during the Silent Art Auction. I didn't win the other Steampunk-inspired design from you, but I like them both immensely. Good job!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like the steampunk-themed works, I'm having a great time exploring the genre and hope to do more steampunk-flavored stuff. :)

She looks like a female steampunk version of Van Helsing. Very cool character design, and awesome drawing.

Yay! I was hoping she'd have a sort of Van Helsing-like feel to her. :)

Thank you so much. :)

Isn't this Carrie a school teacher who got tried of her students disappearing . As teachers will , she did some research and discovered there were vampires . Naturally she wouldn't have any of that and there " Were " no vampire hunters in the area , a little more research . Now we have Sue the ass kicking vampire hunter , and her students are safe too . She's still a teacher , but during breaks and during the summer off Sue rids the world of those annoying vampires . Twilight beware .

Love the picture . My kinda gal smart and tough .

Thank you very much, but now I realize that I've done a steampunk vampire hunter, I'm almost compelled to do a steampunk vampire! O.o

Really interesting piece! Is she a bounty hunter, vampire slayer, assassin?

Keep up the great work!

Your enthusiasm is infectious, and I LOVES it! :)

I was thinking of some play on Van Helsing, just trying to pick through suitable names.. I want something vaguely eastern European to suit the lineage... dunno yet.

Of course, now I need to come up with some kind of steampunk vampire... oy. O.o

This is so awesome! I love how you got her too look sophisticated, and still pretty bad-ass at the same time

:D great piece ^^

Thank you so much! Every modern lady of style and breeding must remain well-armed at all times, but never with anything so gauche as to clash with her daily ensemble. :)
