This piece evolved from a character concept  inspired by a member of an old rap group from the 80s. This is where it ended up. The shiny surfaces and skin tones were a challenging.

Lovely work! The colouring is great all over, especially her skin and the surface she is standing on. The text and number on the metal is a nice detail; gives the impression that the material has been reused to build this construction.

:-) Eugene Randolph Young replies: "Thanks, Orchid!"

That platform is intense. You know how to simulate metal so well. Is there some sort of reference you use?

:-) Eugene Randolph Young replies: "I went with my gut on this one, but I do spend a lot of time drawing from life and paying attention to surfaces. I might have checked a metal spoon a few times."
