Royal Steam Corps -- Gripping Adventures

Reuse.  I wasn't going to let all this go to waste.  This time I spent about 12 hours working on adjusting all the line thicknesses and positioning. The zeppelins were very small -- had to do a lot of surgery but it was worth it.  I like the results.

Sparky Flyer, Final without words

This is the final Sparky Flyer without words. This will be available as a large print and in 8 1/2 by 11 sizes. The next stage is to choose the font for the words and add them to the project. If you wish to see the development of the piece, check out the previous posts below.

Sparky Flyer Colourwork

I changed the name to the Sparky Flyer because I intend to put words on the picture and find the Y is more artistic in many typefaces than the I and adds more visual interest. This picture is the image without the lines and shows how much colourwork, shadow and details that I used in its making. I paint with shape and colour using illustrator because I find it more graphic and precise.

Steampowered Airship Buttons

Here is a sample of one of 12 pins that I did from the background of the Sparky Flyer. I liked them so much that I had to find another place for them. The pins will have the same ships but with different arrangements and backgrounds. The pins will be about the size of a business card and suitable for wearing on a lapel or pocket.
