Steampunk Bettie by jEANd-mICHEL Steampunk Bettie by jEANd-mICHEL
Bettie Page from an alternate Steampunky life.

A concept by Melissa Weiland (one half of the skillful and accomplished Nerdy Duo) that I just couldn't get out of my head for months now.

I may go back and re-ink and color her at another point, but I really need to get jamming on the layouts for my book.

Thanks for the art Jean. It's amazing. I'm going to start basing my steampunk fasion around this inspiration you've give me, as many people think I look like Bettie Page. Thanks!

Love the detail ! This looks like something from the Old West, or " The Wild, Wild West " ( a 60's series featuring secret agents, steampunk gadgets, etc. ) She has an amazing outfit.

This is beautiful!
The only thing that bothers me is her mouth/nose region, im not nsure what it is exactly but it doesn't settle with me.

It might be because I never got to add any shadows or highlights. It's all flat coloring which I usually don't like to do, but it just felt more old timey leaving it flat.

Maybe I'll try adding in some airbrushing to see what happens.

Thanks for the comment!

Hey, just a question. Did you reference the pose from this? ~> [link] Because it looks quite similar. If you have, I would recommend maybe citing that you referenced the pose from her. If not, quite the coincidence. lol Looks neat otherwise. :)

Actually, Thundercake referenced a very famous Bettie Page pose, which I also reffed for mine.

Google "Bettie Page" and one of the very first images that pops up should shed some light on it all for you.

Thanks! In all honesty though, it's hard NOT to kick ass when you're working with someone like Bettie P for your inspiration.

Thanks for the support.
