Al-Jazari, (1136–1206) Medieval Turkish robot-maker!
Pictured above is his famous Elephant Clock.

His Musical Robot Band. [x]

His Wine-Pouring Machine.

His Castle Clock.

His Hand-Washing Automaton With Flush Mechanism.

His… uh… Table Device? I have no idea what this was for, actually.

Why there isn’t an entire genre of steampunk inspired by this guy, I have no idea.

I wanted to fully colour this, but I can never seem to shade anything to my liking. So here she is with flats and a tiny bit of definition on the face.

Colour/shading is something I constantly have issues with, but I am pretty proud of this line style. I started working on figuring it out with the Flight Rising art, gave up, and have finally managed to pin down a way to do it. It still needs a little tweaking, but I’ll figure it out as I go.
