Lady Ravendale is our first Steampunk image. Embrio was inspired to work on a Steampunk image after seeing all of the great costumes at Dragon-Con.
The rips and tears in the image were actually taken from a photo restoration I was doing for Embrio. His wife had an old photo of her grandmother as a child that was badly torn and he wanted me to restore it as a Christmas present. I happened to also be working on Lady Ravendale and realized the tears I was removing from the photo would work great for aging this picture.
