Three Muses Challenge - Steampunk

The word makes me so annoyed ... don't ask why ... it's a culmination of bad experiences and other things ... however I love the steampunk look.  So seeing this challenge did make me internally scream however I really wanted to play around with a couple of new kits I'd bought from Deviantscrap so I thought I'd put aside my prejudices and have a go at Steampunking up Benedict Cumberbatch.

Eduardo Recife - inspired by Digitalmania

I'd love to have more time to create.  Yesterday was my first day off in months - I'm finally on Summer Break after an exhausting summer term and summer school for a week.  I'm just looking forward to relaxing, sorting out the flat, seeing friends and family and simply having Polly-time!

One of my favourite challenges that I've discovered is the Digitalmania challenge on Flickr.  Each week they choose an artist or a movement to inspire us; and I have to say that I have been VERY inspired by some of the choices.

This week was Eduardo Recife and I have fallen head over heels in love with his work:

I tried to do justice to his brilliant work in my own 'inspired' piece:

Not quite there but I was pleased with it!
I think I will try some more 'inspired' pieces later though.
