I really like her character since she has an indomitable spirit, the kind that never gives up, despite all odds! She is actually a cheerful lady with upbeat personality so I think my drawing makes her seem too serious. Just assume that she is hearing some important grave news here XD.
I’ve always wanted to make a steam punk art since the genre meshes both sci-fi and fantasy together. I went to a steam punk museum some time ago and it was filled with pretty things, both intricate and delicate. And the steam punk people, they dressed superbly too. So fun to draw ^_^.
First I drew the idea I had in mind. I prefer to put as much details as I can on this stage so I can see the whole picture.
Now I redrew the character outline. On this part, I made sure that my lines are looking good and no longer sketchy.
Then I outlined the background. Steam punk gadgets, woo!
I added fluffy clouds behind her.
Inking and Cross Hatching
On this part, I detailed the drawing with inking and cross hatching. Both are good methods to insinuate lights, shadows, and volumes in black and white picture.
Lastly, I added some light toning to the background. It’s important not to go overboard with toning, or the picture will look too busy. I was actually struggling not to overdo it ^^.
More fun inking and finally, Lady Etta is done✧!
