Winning entry, with a score of:
58.6%
Contest goal:

We've had steampunk contests before, this one specializes on weapons. Steam powered guns, knifes, machine guns and more. Design a extravaganza weapon powered with steam. Have fun.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

BWR: Should this chop be concentrated only on a weapon and a background? Or maybe a scene with a person shooting or otherwise possessing the weapon? Can it be like a steampunk plane, blimp, tank, or other steam vehicle that is weaponized?

Also something like this is clearly a steam punk weapon/gun, but it appears not to be powered by steam. Are these allowed? http://darkcon.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/gun.jpg

Something like this is a steampunk knife but how the heck can you make it "powered" by steam? https://i.pinimg.com/564x/87/f5/ca/87f5ca380a7d9eaf101b657ded9841c1.jpg

I will try to post some pics to show you what I mean but I have to go. ( 3 years and 209 days ago )
BWR: Honestly I think we should get rid of the "steam powered" rule. I thought of so many good ideas but how am I gonna add a steam generator to a knife, and how would that even affect or help the knife? Even googling like "steampunk guns" none of them are steam powered although some maybe powered by small compressed air cylinders. How am I going to make a steam engine to attach to the gun?

Contest Moderator: I agree with you BWR and discussed this with other Mods. We decided to allow any weapons that have the look of the Steampunk style but they must be of original design not something that exists already and they don't have to be powered by steam.

You can show a scene or just the weapon whatever you think will look the best. If you're just showing the weapon I would make the background interesting and not just a plain white or simple tone. ( 3 years and 204 days ago )
