The Toymaker's Workshop by 3-hares The Toymaker's Workshop by 3-hares
I fancied indulging in some whimsical Steampunkiness. It's been 6 years since 'Larklight'. The lady here is reminiscent of Myrtle, but neither character is based on anyone specific; it's more of a tribute to all those who make things.
Pen and ink, watercolour, pencils. 9x13 inches.
As usual, a few extra details about the piece on my blog:

This is gorgeous! The detail work is unfathomable! Every time I look back I see something different. The lines you've incorporated such as her uncomfortable-looking corset brings balance and symmetry to the clutter of random objects and crowded details. It's perfect. :D

seeing the face of the guy without reading the description it reminded me of David Wyatt's illustration at the end of the Larklight books, and after reading the description I was glad it was confirmed.

With every detail, your work is beautiful but the cat, especially caught my eyes.

Wow, great! And I can totally see Myrtle as looking like that now, on some exotic travels with Jack!

What a lovely picture, so rich in details, and the colours are gorgeous!! My eyes keep travelling over each and evry nook and tiny object, its' like you put scenes within the main scene. Your picture tells us a whole story :)

I love the colours. And the details.
Though I believe her clothes would be terribly impracitcal for her kind of work...

...uhm... probably no train of thoughts one should follow when dealing with Steampunk. Ever. :D
