Although I love what I do, create images for other people's books and stories, I try to do an image just for me/my folio about once every three - six months. Actually, I am discovering I HAVE to do a few 'just because'. Something in me takes hold, and I can't think on my commissioned work until I finish it.

Luckily, I get my own images done somewhat faster than I can get commissioned work done. It probably has to do with the fact that I don't have to take the time to get into someone elses head; the 'story' is already in my head itching to get out.

The image pops into my head quite suddenly. Then I have to bring to get it out within a relatively short timeframe, or I get grumpy ... lol.

Well, let me know what you think. I'm still sorta new to the sci-fi genre, as far as my images are concerned (I usually read fantasy but watch sci-fi films). I tend to gravitate toward fantasy, but my mental eye seems to be shifting ... Looking forward to your feedback. :D

Onto wrapping up the next book :D

Until next time ...

Very nice piece!  It definitely adds a sci fi feel to a steampunk venue with the shininess of Kraken Station, but it definitely works.  Nice job!  :-)

Thank you :D I was trying to mix three different genres into one visual story. Although, it could be argued, that Steampunk is a subgenre of sci-fi, anyway. So why not mix them? ;D

Thank you :D And though I don't believe in talent, it's still a nice sentiment. Thanks :D
