Hooray!!! It's finally done~
This took me forever because I was trying to improve my sense of color and achieve more luminosity in the image. I tend to ignore the background in my images and focus on the figures first which isn't right. So usually my people/characters come out super, while the background is somewhat lacking cuz all my energy gets expended in one area, rather than over the whole piece evenly.

I was inspired by Miyazaki's film Howl's Moving Castle for the background, Area 56 for the robot and overall concept and Jason Chan for the figure.

Thanks to gamefan84 for all the demos and help! You're the best <3

sketched on paper, scanned and painted in Photoshop.

The monocle, I am in awe.
Seriously the background is amazing. I really love those mountains.
The only criticism I have is about the top plate on the robot's head. I can't tell which way it's bending.
