Cabaret by NicolasRGiacondino Cabaret by NicolasRGiacondino
So, i'll be leaving this next week on a medical trip to my homewtown. And since i won't have most of my nifty tools around, i thought i'd upoad something before i go.
This illustration was done merely for fun (which isn't something i'd done in quite sometime); i've always been a fan of the 40s and the idea of a steampunk cabaret struck me as something original.
I particularly like the palette i used in this one, and the effect i achieved on her holographic body (an excellent way to keep the customers from 'handling' the merchandise, so to speak ;) ). The rust on the gentlemen robots is good too, and i'm very satisfied with all the facial features i managed to pull off of them. I should do a story in this style and with these characters...

I hope you enjoy and see you in a week!

The holo-body is neat, but the robo mens' faces are priceless.

The holo-body is there to keep the customers's hands off, actually! :D I'm glad you liked the expressions on the robots and there will be news of this project very soon, I believe...

Thank you for the compliments!

... I had thought about something like this for robot flesh, but you just brought the idea to a level of awesomeness I still had never seen before.

And remember.
Note, or your legs are bai-bai.

Wow man, I really love this piece.

I give everything in this picture a 10 out of 10. You should do more pictures just for fun. If they come out anything like this than they'll be incredible.

Hey, Andrew! I'm sorry i couldn't reply earlier to your comment, but my trip messed up my head. A 10 out of 10 is a total achievement for me! And i'm truly glad that you're the one giving it, since i value your 'instinct' and eyes a lot.

Thank you, my friend.

Incredible as always I love the color palette you used really gives it that grity 1940's look kinda like an old sepia photograph....did you use markers for the rust effect or is it colored pencil?

:iconnicolasrgiacondino:
NicolasRGiacondino Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks, Rene! Indeed that tone gives it a very special 'old' atmosphere, which i'm glad i achieved. The rust effect is done with pencils over the markers, yes. There are some accents with markers but it's mostly pencil, because it gives an extra texture that makes rust look like, well... rust ;)...
