Steampunk World’s Fair 2015: Hipstamatic Series

  
Maria Ortiz as Maleficent

I attended the Steampunk Worlds Fair in Piscataway, New Jersey back in May. I have been interested in Steampunk culture, especially the music, fashion and how to use it in my art. I started taking photos of people dressed in their steampunk finery about three years ago and I am working on an ongoing multimedia project using these photos.

These photos were taken using the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. I am using the Tinto 1884 lens and the C-Type Plate film to give the photos an antiqued Tintype look. The Tinto 1884 lens seems to focus on the eyes to give the photos an otherwordly look. Since one of the themes of Steampunk culture is time travel, I want to give the photos the look of something that is out of time, or timeless.

Cosplay Trio

I am always amazed by the creativity of the costumes and the themes. Some people are mixing cosplay with steampunk with some incredible results! I am already looking forward to next year’s World’s Fair which will be held May 13 through 15, 2016.

Tutorial: Creating a Digital Portrait with Inkpad and Percolator

Sweet Melisa

This is a portrait of Sweet Melisa for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I started with an Inkpad drawing:

Next I used the Percolator app to make several different versions:

Finally I imported all the different versions into Sketchbook Pro. I used the layers to erase parts of each layer to subtract the Percolated areas that I did not want.
