Art Inspiration: Imagine The Impossible: Steampunk Woman 14

‘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 fourteenth caricature is a wonderful teacher who loves the children and to have fun while working with them. She is kind and gentle and I thought lets add a little naughty side to her persona. Therefore I began with a corset and white shirt then a short skirt to show off her long legs. She is a tall woman and I wanted to show this with the clothes she would wear. I drew the caricature with stockings and long knee-high boots to accentuate her height. I then added a top hat and goggles to show her long flowing hair. It is also something I know she would wear. The to finish off the look I gave her the biggest steampunked rifle I drew to show that she may be a nice sweet person but she is also a badass.

She really enjoyed her caricature especially her badass gun. She mentioned that she has boot like the ones I drew and I said I know I saw her wearing them once. Sometimes my caricatures come from the person’s own style too. I hope you enjoy the fourteenth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”
