Steampunk Arsenic and Old Lace by jbrenthill Steampunk Arsenic and Old Lace by jbrenthill
Uniball pen & watercolor; based on the Marvel Comics characters Arsenic and Old Lace
This is my entry for the Steampunk Runaways contest, held by :iconthehostel:
This is how I imagine Gertrude Yorkes and her pet dinosaur in a steampunk world. If you're a hardcore Runaways fan (which you should be), you may notice I used a lot of inspiration from the comics in Gert's outfit--not only her own clothing, but also her parents' and the Gibborim. I know I seem like I'm joking, but your should seriously read Runaways. You owe it to yourself!

Note: I based Gert's pose on the cover from Runaways Vol. 2, #11 by James Jean.

i mean it, this is a really cool design, not to mention the colors.  watercolors are not easy.  the shadows and overall linework is great.

Oh my God I love Gert!

I remember you reminded me of her name on your past deviation with "Princess Powerful"

Ah here we go, yes very awesome picture. Lace does look pretty awesome as a robot, and the saddle is a nice touch too. I always wanted to see Gert ride on Old Lace's back more often, wonder why they never did it in the comic. Gerts outfit is pretty nice as well, and I like that its a reference to an actual cover.

Thanks! I figured that if you have a dinosaur, why not ride it? I'm glad you agree!
