Added more texture and a pattern to her kimono. Enriched the color of her clothing and added some patterns to a couple of the pillows. I don't want to make it too saturated as Steampunk colors are often more muted. But I think the red kimono now brings out her lips and beads.
I've had this concept in my head for a while now. A geisha in the steampunk genre, living in a submarine. Not only do you pay for some company, but you get one hell of a ride (and stealthy too -- perfect for those shady clientele).
Technically she is an Oiran, but people are more familiar with the term "geisha" and that's why I titled it what I did.
I hope everyone enjoys! Stock Images (CC):
