Steampunk Sally - New by ChazKemp Steampunk Sally - New by ChazKemp
This is one of my favorite pieces, but I had never been all that thrilled with the background, so I decided to change it. I wanted ot put quite a bit of work into it to try to make the piece more complete. I'm much happier with this now!

Please let me know what you think. I'll keep the old piece in my gallery as well for comparison. You can find it here: [link]

Again I want to acknowledge and thank *mizzd-stock for the awesome stock photo and her beautiful poses. This piece will be up in my store tomorrow, which you can visit here: [link]

All of your Steampunk is amazing. Do you take commissions?

Heya! I DO take commissions actually - especially if you like steampunk, fantasy and all of the other things I like to draw. (Which is most everything!) Please drop me a line at: chazkemp@comcast.net - I don't check my dA account very often but I check my email several times a day.

Thanks for the consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon! - Chaz

You did an excellent job here in everything, and I love the cute little slogan at the bottom. Makes this feel like a real, old-timey poster.

I see what you did thar. So you just happened to make a red haired dirty but pretty mechanic, and an oriental dressed lady. Let me guess, your going to make a rag tag Captain of an airship, a renegade doctor, a tough mercenary and so on.

Are you re-making Firefly? Be honest.

:iconchazkemp:
ChazKemp Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
lol! While I think Firefly may have absolutely crept into my subconscious, that was not a deliberate intention on my part for Steampunk Sally. I made the first Steampunk Sally drawing before I watched Firefly for the first time. I honestly don't get into doing much in the way of fan art. There's SO much Firefly fan art out there already that adding to it wouldn't really help me to stand out as an artist.

Agent Jiang was actually initially done as part of the slew of drawings I did for the "Noir Knights" game by Savage Mojo last year. I decided to re-purpose the art to fit into my current love of steampunk. (I still have the original drawing up in my gallery.)

I absolutely love Firefly though - and now you've given me some interesting ideas... Thanks for taking a look at my stuff, Dreadnought 9.
