Repair by redredundance Repair by redredundance
Hey look some thesis work! Sorry I've been so inactive on DA... I've just been trying to figure things out or something. Busy and all XD; But this submission promises more submissions in the future, right? :]

I should prolly actually clean up the character sheet for this character... If I haven't said so already her name is Elle and she is a sort of mechanical ballerina. She can switch between a speaking voice and playing music box tunes. In the story her gears get damaged and she is trapped in music box mode for a while. Here she is getting that little problem repaired...

Love your style, he muted palette and the mannerist style of the figures. Wasn't until I looked at this again later today, that I saw the three extra faded characters watching from the background. What media is this painted with? (Gouache or acrylic? I take it's not digital, but maybe I'm wrong)

I saw this image on the Dresden Codak blog and was hoping she was a cyborg. But her being a real life mechanical ballerina is very amusing, and... are those F-holes on her back? LOVE IT! :love:
