So, Kevin Hanna is doing a comic called Clockwork Girl. What is it about? Well, think ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ but instead of feuding noble houses we have feuding branches of science. Anyway, he put out an open call for contributions for pinup art and this was my entry. It’s gonna be in issue four (on stands end of April). I can’t freaking wait to see it.

Other than some concept sketches I did freehand, pretty much the whole thing was drawn and colored in Photoshop CS3. (if you’re interested, here is just the ink) I made the texture for the background from some free brushes I downloaded from Bittbox.
