I really admire concept art and this one is absolutely stunning.
First the hairstyle is simply superb. The way that huge comb over appears to just pop right off the page was the first thing to catch my eye. Hairstyles are the one of the most distinguishing traits of memorable anime characters and you managed pull this one off with ease.
Her face is just too cute and very animate. I can tell this character is a vivacious one in her storyline. One of those perky one who's always full of energy.
Her clothing is simply amazing and unique. The gears and belts and the chain links really scream Steam Punk (as your work is appropriately titled) and every detail for everything I listed above is done with extraordinary finesse and even the pose suits the character.
Hey you did an amazing job with this piece. Keep this up and you'll be publishing your own manga in no time.
What? Ani'tcha never seen an in depth critique before. XP
Haha I josh. I'm glad I made you laugh as well as entertained you. You know I wasn't even trying to but somehow you still laughed. XD I guess it's just my uncanny knack for humor. Back in school I was a very serious person and was still making people laugh just by being myself. XDXD (You should've been in my 11th grade AVID class. and 12th grade Pre-AP English IV class.)
No prob for the compliment and yes hard work is the key to awesome artwork along with infusing a bit of emotion in it.
Haha and by the way this your reply has really made my day and even made me laugh. XD (I still have that uncanny knack )
Keep up the outstanding work.
