“Magic” 3D Top Hat Illustration for Steampunk Alchemy

Hello friends! I have just finished my second illustration for my upcoming project with Penny Blake. Steampunk Alchemy will be a how-to book about making your own perfumes and lotions, with an alchemical steampunk twist of course! This is my contribution for the perfume called “Magic.” If you missed the first illustration for “Light than Air”, you can see it here.

I decided to go with a magician theme rather than a witch, wizard or fairy because of the rise of magically inclined performers during the steam era. If you want to learn more you can check out my Steampunk Sourcebook for The Illusionist, which features a Steampunk magician gallery.

Magic edited

When you see it straight on in a photo, it may not be quite as obvious that the hat and the magic bits (which were salvaged laser cut wood scraps I bought at Weekend at the Asylum and painted) are coming out of the canvas and toward the viewer, so here a couple pics that are less polished and meant to show you a bit more about how it works.
