"Aviateros" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Steampunkery."

I invented the word "Aviateros" which is a combination of Aviator and Rhinoceros. I like Steampunk, but I always struggle to create the art form. I'm pleased with how this piece came out.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.10.

The vintage images are from a DuckDuckGo search.

The words are from the Bible.

The fonts are:
Roman SD
Marketing Script

A flying rhinocereos.... no, I don't want that over my head! (giggle) But a very cool nonetheless and a cool card, too. I like it a lot.

This is lovely, it reminds me of Dürer's rhinoceros. Valerie

You did a very handsome job on this that rhino really lends himself well to Steampunk...excellent.
