Plot: Emil was an orphan after she was born. At the age of 6, a strange man told her that she was inherited a factory that her father established. He was a great inventor who loved steampunk machines. It took him 10 years to build up this factory and all the machines were made by himself. His wife was died after gave birth to Emil and then he disappeared. Emil went to the factory and was really surprised when she saw the world that her father created. No one knows that he also made a time machine, and it was kept somewhere in the factory. Emil found the Octopus ship and the records of her father introducing how to use his machines. She learned them everyday to control this factory and one day, the secret revealed...
I found these sources by the key words "STEAMPUNK MACHINE" and you can see the result in the SBS. If you want to verify, just go to Flickr, type these words, choose the advanced search: only photo, creative commons, can be adapted or modified. I used high resolution monitor, so I can get 60 photos on the first page.

I spent the whole weekend just for making this image with many many hours cleaning out the background of the source images. Finally I'm quite satisfied with that result, maybe the best that I've made. Please view in Hi-Res, thanks everyone.

I havent made a comment for 1 year and 62 days, its taken your incredible work author i had to say something. I love the idea and you can see how much work has gone in to it. For me its a stunning chop. Source links worked for me.

Very nice! One small thing, the lighting on the girl. She's to bright and has no shadows (looks flat). Good luck!

author says:

Thank you all to your comments, especially beaneze, that's my great pleasure to received your comment. @Ressiv: thank you for your suggestion but I don't agree with that, because in fact I made the shadow for the girl and you can clearly see in the Hi-Res. The light is vertical so her shadow should be small and around her foot. Making her glowing is my intense, she's wearing the illuminated clothes and the light makes her bright, this factor also reduces the intensity of her shadow. I tried to increase the shadow a bit but it stands out like a black area in the center of the image, not suitable, so I decide to keep the original state.

the best,,,,,,as always!!!!!!!

avatar Ressiv
Ressiv says:

I meant shadow on herself Not under. If she is supposed to glow you could create a glow around her. But it's just a minor thing in a very nice total image. Good luck!

very well done --- blending and level of detail is super

avatar DanLundberg

Extremely cool! I'll admit I personally prefer the girl in SBS Step 14; I find this one too washed out and inexplicable, plus I think the focal point of the picture gets lost as a result..

What a dreamy steampunk factory! It's a magic and lovely image, very well blended. It's so perfect that it seems the image came this way. Nice mood too... GL!

avatar Chalty669
Chalty669 says:

Very nice indeed! Only a couple of nitpicks, the compartment door of the octopus. At that distance would it be in front or behind the guy? There are a couple of holes on the contraption mounted to the octopus behind the girl which you missed. I would also have to agree that the girls brightness distracts from the fluentness of the whole picture. Having said that, this is a really nice piece which will surely go to the favs. Congratulations and keep them coming.

edit: much better!

avatar elficho
elficho says:

the only things that bug me are "11st " and "12nd" in the description
anyway great job on the image!

author says:

Thank you my friends for you comments and suggestions. I' ll change something according to your suggestions, honestly it made me exhausted just after extracting the elements, so many details to deal with. @Chad: it's above the head of the robot, but it's transparent @elficho: oops, it's really a shame to me, how silly I am, I fixed them, thank you so much.
EDIT: changes were made
