Exploring Steampunk - Capolan Project - First and second efforts

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm enjoying exploring the world of Steampunk - something I'm not familiar with and had it not been for The Capolan Group, I'd continue to be in the fog about this 'genre'.  The challenge for me is to find a way to express it that isn't Punk or Goth or Retro-Revival. 


Below, a second effort with a definitive Daliesque touch -




Effort #3 - combining the 2 above

Beautiful work! I like #1 the best. I have a lot of angst over this project, but you have given me some great ideas. It had not occurred to me that you could use just a face. I had the idea that you had to use a whole person in period costume modified in some way to make it steam punk. Again, simply lovely!
