ROUND #180:: The STEAMPUNK HAREMDESCRIPTION
The STEAMPUNK HAREM
They are pampered and preened for the Sultan and Sultana. Doused with pungent oils, washed with lavender and cinnamon scented perfumes, their skins perfect and their complexions refined and painted to reflect the whim of their master and mistress.
They are treated with respect and adoring attention, but they are prisoners; birds in a gilded-cage. They are the concubines of the king and queen, the harem slaves of oriental fantasy. But the world these particular chattels inhabit is a Steampunk world.
This week design a Steampunk harem boy or girl. Either gender, it’s up to you; and environment is also at your own discretion. This harem is fantasy, and we suggest looking at odalisques and Victorian Orientalist painting as inspiration, but keep in mind their costume and world they inhabit is Steampunk.
If you’re not familiar with Steampunk, just type it into Google and browse the enormous amount of reference there is. Some reference for Orientalist art here:
Also remember this is a forum for all ages, so please bear that in mind in your design.

I didn't want to push the steampunk features too far. I thought the outfit should feel comfortable, so I leaned on the oriental fashion. But I also included some sort of victorian neck tie, buttons, stripes, and patterns.
I conceived a steam machine that dispenses a very addictive gas. It's widely used in the harems to smash the willpower of the slaves, specially the males.
What a fun round! Nice topic Posh and Daes!

Yay I finished my first CHOW. And I thought I wasn't going to make it.
Pretty unhappy about this one. Think I bit off WAY more than I could chew. No where near the level of detail I wanted to do...and considering this is only my second proper go at painting in Photoshop....Eh...wish I had more time! But that is the point of CHOW to get stuff done in a limited timeframe...so I hope to only get better from here.
Ahh so if I get cut, well, I wont be cut! Lol
Thanks for the super duper excellento topic!! And the entries are all wonderful. Yay!!

The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

You need people like me so you can point your grubby fingers and say, "That's the bad guy.""
