SOSS #235 - S for Steampunk

This topic is one I love and dread at the same time. I LOVE steampunk but I don't have a lot of it since I tend toward the cute.  Not that steampunk can't be cute but sort of creepy cute. LOL.

Coloring up this seahorse took a fair amount of time, in part due to finding a rusty color combo I was satisfied with.  My Polychromos helped grunge it up more.  The background was cake compared to that.  Mmm, cake.
