Steampunk Ammonite

Tonight I felt like doing something steampunkish. I haven't actually sat down and done a piece of artwork in a while. I seem to be going and doing so much lately. In fact, there could be big changes in my life. We will just have to wait and see. In the meanwhile, enjoy my steampunk creation!

My artwork has been published in the DeviantMuse!!

I've been published in the September issue of the DeviantMuse!!!! Recently I took a challenge at Deviant Scrap that was sponsored by Marta Van Eck. The challenge was to create a book cover using Marta's kits and the theme was "Fairy Tale." If you were in the top three, your book cover would be published in the September issue of DeviantMuse. Now, this being my first challenge and having to compete with all the very talented artists at Deviant Scrap, I really didn't believe I had a chance to be published. But I took the challenge anyway. Just one more step in helping me to be more creative. Being a HUGE "Jane Eyre" fan, I just had to do a take on my favorite book! Well, below are the results! Was I ever surprised to learn my book cover was one of the top three!!
