Entry for the
Rock-off contest to design a Steampunk fairytale character.
I've always liked the idea of flying ships as an image, and wanted to create a less common character for the contest, so I plucked for Sinbad, but in a crazy airship. This has pretty much taken all my free time for the last 10 days or so!
The biggest difficulty I had in making the image was adding steampunk and victorian elements, whilst keeping the character looking sufficiently Persian to be Sinbad, and as a result, the character is not quite as off the wall and crazy as I originally imagined. I tried to steer clear of using textures to create a more 'brushy' look more like how I originally learnt to paint on paper.
Anyway, as always feedback would be greatfully recieved!
