I decided not to use the line work in the final image. So here it is! My months of work. It started out as a simple sketch but turned into a full picture, as what often happens to people. I still have a few tweaks here and there but I will put this project on the back burner for a while, so I thought I would just submit it.
This picture takes place in an arid land where the competition for resources is so intense people use forged robots to help them fight. Steambot was built long before it was actually used, during a time when water was plentiful. It was found and completed in a desperate attempt to acquire protection, decades later when water is much more scarce. Naturally the bot is sent out with this nameless girl to find more water, where countless hardships are encountered.
I used a few textures, a mix of my own and from other people, so let us get this list underway.

Leather straps: [link]
One of the Brushed metals, arm piece: [link]
Front wall texture: [link]
The rest were from pictures I had taken.

Edit v1.1 added more shadowing, blended city into environment better, more contrast and shiny fingers!
I'll keep editing it as I find things to fix and when I have time to.
