Art Inspiration: Imagine The Impossible: Steampunk Woman 11


 

‘The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.’ Aristotle

‘Imagination is more important than knowledge.’ Albert Einstein

Inspiration and Imagination, something every artist needs and is elusive as an island of tranquility in a sea of chaos. Many people have told me that I inspire the children and people in general with what I do. Whether creating art, playing baseball or trying to improve my life, people say that I have inspired others to try new things and look inside themselves. I have always found this interesting because I get my inspiration from these very people.

A prime example is when I drew the staff at my school as cartoon characters or caricatures for their Christmas Cards. It took quit a while to create the caricatures but once the staff received them they loved the cards and caricatures. In the next few weeks I will be posting a few of the characters from the cards because these people inspired me to create these characters. Hopefully they can spur imagination and inspire others.

The eleventh caricature is a wonderful teacher and a lovely person that thinks of the students in everything she does. She is a bit quiet but she is always there to lend a helping hand. I wanted to draw her caricature a little riské, therefore I began with a corset and instead of a blouse I added a sheer top to show off a little cleavage. I then added a short skirt that allowed the caricature to show off her stockings and garters. Then I drew in the knee-high leather boots and a side pack. I had her hair come down onto her shoulders but I added a lady’s hat with feathers for that elegant look. The one thing that was different then the other caricatures is that everyone had either a necklace or earrings that had one gear as a piece of jewelry. Yet with this caricature I drew in three on her necklace. This is because she was my secret Santa and it was part of a game I did when I game everyone the final portrait with everyone on it.

She really enjoyed her caricature especially the stockings; as did everyone else. I hope you enjoy the eleventh steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”
