The Airship Avalon and its citizenry part1

This summer as a personal project, aside from working at Macy's, I decided to create a Steampunk looking world living on Airships. And for my characters I would take a the first 15 or so friends to comment on my facebook status and put them into this world. By doing so, it would force me to use a myriad of different personalities and body types that I may have never chosen myself. The challenge was more fun and a lot more interesting than I had originally though it would be. But with the summer ending and classes starting up again, the project is put on hold (or at least in slow motion).

Here is the first collection of characters~

James of the Lady's Secret Police (Left) and Airship Captain Fernando (Right) were the first to be designed. Their clothing had to both be functional to their roles in the story as well as a good representation of their personality. James is a much more flamboyant person than the reserved and duty driven Captain.
Victoria (Left) and Nicole (Right) are an inseparable pair. Victoria is the overseer of the mechanics for the main ship. She keeps the beefy men and woman who are cut out for the extreme manual labor in line, no questions asked. Nicole designs and creates mechanical animals ranging from dogs and cats to Lady Morgan's (soon to come) garden fairies.
Here we have two fighter pilots, Wesley (Left) and Andrew (Right) sporting the two variations of their uniforms. Their job is to fly ahead of the main airship and to keep it safe from anything, whether it be an attacking airship, air pirates, or just a slow moving airbeast. They also function as scouts, and explorers.
Nicole (left) and Adam (right) work on the home front, unlike Wesley and Andrew. These two care for and educate the younger generations about the airship and whatnot. They are more reserved yet very caring characters with loads of patience to deal with the hoards of questions the children come up with.
Kimberly (Left) and Torie (right) both enjoy the same highbrow company. That being said, their roles are quite different. Torie is the High Judge for the Airship Avalon and enforces the laws. Even though she may not follow them all the time herself, she takes her job seriously when she's on the clock. Kimberly is a young writer rooming with the airships new Historian (soon to come). And thus get dragged into the upper class, though she doesn't seem to mind.
And the last pair of this group are two denizens, upper middle class women, sporting two extremes of the fashion seen aboard the Airship Avalon. Jordyn (Left) is seen wearing a more risque and revealing dress than the fully covered Kati (Right).
All these were done with microns and Rembrandt watercolors.
