Inspired by the universe in The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi.
The main character of the book is Emiko, a Japanese girl genetically engineer to serve normal humans.
She was abandoned in this city when she became outdated. She was design to have a super smooth skin, not really appropriate to survive under such hot and humid weather condition. Hence she always needs to cool down. She took place at the top of a shanty tower where she take care of the other unnatural being that nobody want, the "The Cheshire cats".

Full painting here, I wanted to challenge myself and not use any 3D or photos.. It took more time to do but I think I prefer this kind of result. ^^ I'll try to do more.
