Art Inspiration: Imagine The Impossible: Steampunk Woman 18

‘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.

Steampunk Woman 18

The eighteenth caricature is a wonderful teacher whom I have worked with on many occasions. She was working with the grade fives at the time and I wanted to create a Steampunk caricature for her as I drew caricatures of a few of the students in the graduating class. She always a straight arrow and speaks her mine on a number of topics. With this in mind I thought to draw her as a Steampunk archer. I never drew an archer before and I wanted something different for this caricature.

I used the Lord of the Rings Elvin archers as inspiration and began there. I began with the corset and instead of a skirt or dress I drew her wearing skin-tight pants and riding boots. I added a feminine blouse with lace along the edge but because she is an archer she has short sleeves and a shooting gloves/greaves. Going with the Elvin archer look I drew her wearing a cape and hood. Her weapon of course is compound bow with a blade and a similar looking quiver.   I then drew her hair with a large braid to finish the look.

She loved her caricature, as did the many others. I hope you too enjoy the eighteenth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”
