Soot Sparrow 1 by PaulSizer Soot Sparrow 1 by PaulSizer
Drawing of SOOT SPARROW, the character that I created and played in the Thomas Dolby online Alternate Reality Game "The Floating City".

She is standing in front of her tug, the "Miss Sakamoto", a reference to the lyrics of Thomas Dolby's popular hit song "She Blinded Me With Science".

The Floating City game is ©Thomas Dolby

I really love this piece - not just for the character design (which is wonderful - the "grease, sweat and ginger" line below fits perfectly!), but for the environment behind her as well.  You really nailed that open-air-yet-slightly-grimy feel of a working seaport.  The two elements are blended together wonderfully.
Out of curiosity, are you planning on entering this in :iconblackartsociety: 's "Fantasy Firsts" contest?  There is a shortage of dark-skinned steampunkers (or is the Miss Sakamoto a diesel?) in the world, and I think this pic would fit in wonderfully.

Question; it looks like the rules require it to be something new, made for the contest. Would this image qualify?

Oops.  Drat.  My apologies!  In order to qualify, images must be created after September 5.  I saw this one after that date, and took it for a new post.  I should have checked the date.  ^^;
On the bright side, the contest will be going on through September 26 - so you have a couple weeks left, if you're thinking of producing any more art in the near future.

You just combined two elements that I love. Attractive Tomboys who can repair/fix engines and boats. Tug boats have a special soft spot for me. Soot Sparrow, would you take me as your first mate?. LOL. She probably smells like engine grease. Nice!. Sexy.

Yes. I reserve K-Man for close family and friends.

K-Dog and K to the motherf&*k'n A are unfortunately off limits. Gang reasons.
