Carousel of Time by Vampiressartist Carousel of Time by Vampiressartist
I spent between 3 and 4 hours painting this today. I spent about 2-3 weeks working on this, and I am FINISHED! I am so happy! :D

This is my 8th Concentration piece, titled Carousel of Time. My family was getting really tired of the moodiness that was plaguing the rest of my works, so I found the Steampunkism contest and decided to try something different. This piece symbolizes that even as time goes on, I can still be a kid at heart and enjoy life. Thus, there is a more cheerful spirit in this piece, compared to the other pieces in my concentration so far. I don't think the next piece will be as light-hearted. ^^;

Here is news of the Steampunkism contest, hosted by :iconatramina:. [link] I am just SO happy I finished my painting before November 20! I was really worried that I would not make it. I just hope that there are enough steampunk and impressionist elements in this piece. :)

Steampunk Elements (May not include all)
Toy Carousel
Clock Tower
Clock and Clockwork gears on horse
Brooch on girl's dress

This piece is just amazing - it's so dream-like and fantastical, and makes for a very ethereal work of art. What I like about it most is that while it includes Steampunk elements, it doesn't feel like Steampunk - it has a much lighter and carefree atmosphere to it. Steampunk artwork almost always has a darker, duller color palette - and I'm glad you didn't skimp out on the colors here - it's very vibrant and rich. The composition adds even more to the dream-like element of this piece, and I especially like the chains, for the curves accentuate the floating aspect of the other props. Lovely work, I really can't find anything worth criticizing.
What do you think?

I've been looking for other people who included merry-go-rounds in their concentration pieces, and it looks like I finally found a drawing with one! I did a merry-go-round concentration so that's why! Anyways, this is beautiful. I love the decorations, details, and ornamentation! :)
