Aether Machine - about context

So, here's one that I had an initial idea for about a month ago... a koji morimoto inspired girl inhaling out of a steampunk/vintage gas pump inspired Aether vending machine. I ended up just scanning a thumbnail and doing about a 4-5 hour colour pass on it.
I think I learned a little something about context with this one. I wasn't motivated to finish my initial thumbnail until I thought about placing the girl and machine in a distopic future city with acid rain and the whole blade runner feel to it...
I'm all for random ideas, but I guess it's good to do a little more storytelling and put things in context sometimes, it seemed to help this come together for me.
