Steampunk Imagination

I've been eyeing the 'Steampunk Dark Angel' by Aurora Wings for ages, but kept bypassing it as I was a bit intimidated to be honest! But with the cute 'Reindeer Sprite' being a freebie with purchase recently, I decided to go for it.  It was a good choice as the day after, Aurora Wings announced their new challenge theme - Metallics!! 
Naturally I had to make myself something with this image and as it's been a while since I did a canvas, that's what I made.  I haven't done step-by-step photos as I was having too fun creating and forgot.
