Entry for :iconhyo-san-desu:s steampunk contest… .

Painting this one was quite fun, even though I feel like I will never paint any real city again ;) (well, partly real city).

Update: Allright, I forget to write a short explanation. So, this is alternative version of main character from sci-fi story Im writing. The original character, Rhianon Eckhart (… Enid Ace (false identity,… is captain of spaceship named Aquila and a time traveller. This one is her parallel universe version, which is captain of an airship with the same name (that explains those wings everywhere). She is smart, cynical and maybe just a little bit psycho ;).
Also, the dog is something like "not so high-tech but still fully functional" alternative to her fancy robotic cat Octavia (now, can you guess his name? ;)).
Im wondering if someone noticed that her clocks are showing different time than Big Ben?
The story is actually quite ridiculous sci-fi/detective thing, probably without any deeper meaning (and definitely no moral lessons) but I must admit, that I enjoy writing it more than anything else.
Since Im writing it in slovak, Im not planing to upload it on dA (I guess it will just annoy most of my watchers). However Im also working on a comic about this characters, which, I promise, will be in my horrible english.

Its fully painted in Adobe Photoshop and took more than 100 hours of work.
