This couple is from the world of Erthair, from Free Islands which is a democratic island state in this steampunk setting. Maybe they are both part of some pirate or privateer crew.
I have been working lately quite much on steampunk oriented art. I'm making these for our steampunk rpg project called SteamJazz. Feel free to go and check it out at SteamJazz netsite [link]
. Sorry for the watermark under the pic, but we are trying to protect these for publishing the whole game.
