The challenge this week from the Three Muses was Steampunk.
When I think steampunk, my first thought is always octopus. I realize that may
just be me, but that is were my mind goes.
I started with a gorgeous vintage picture of a girl and her dog.
I added color and did some damage control to the image.
Initially, I intended to add some goggles or some cogs but I really liked her as is.
I added a landscape from wikipedia commons and then went through my octopus and squid images.
What is it about about our underwater friends that sometimes has a purely alien look to them?
I had some tentacle fun and added some more water creature details into the sky.
To a purist, I may have missed the steampunk mark, but I liked
my final result so here is my version of Steampunk Octopus.
