Oh well... This is the first time I ever attempted something like this lol...

Please watch in High Res and comment... Need advices as where I made mistake and where I need to improve...

Well I dunno whether I will be able to implement it now, but it will be useful for me in the future...

And thanks to Claudia Mayer for that nice spider pic...

Edit: Brassed it...

Fantastic.. this is very, very good. I'd like to see a steam-punk background of some sort.. but don;t change it unless you want to.. because this is INCREDIBLE!

avatar OliviasArts

i love the shadow and the reflection, caught my eye straight away... I am trying sooo hard to make something for this contest inbetween painting the kids room lol

author says:

Thnx all for the comment... @ponti55 I did thought of adding a different background, but then I would have to change the shading of the spider and ground reflection... Well this particular background shows the light source and is kinda cool... So will stick to it... Will implement a more steampunk background if I make an another steampunk art... My head is bursting with ideas lol...

Edit: Thanks cmyk64, well I did thought of going brass at one time... But decided to go a bit modern style... Will keep that in mind though in making further steampunk stuff...

Edit: @DanLundberg thnx for ur comment... Well I did admit it was a bit modern, I didn't say it was not steampunk... Also now a days the concept of steampunk is very much diluted... About the material okay I didn't used brass or iron, and about the background hmmmm just cause I didn't give a steampunkish background doesn't mean the subject becomes "non-steampunkish"... But oh well different poeple think differently...

Edit: @Ponti Thanks... It's okay to leave 3 comment in one entry... P.S. The reflection is still there, but barely...

Edit: @Christy He he he it's small coz I wanted to strain the viewers eyes... Just kidding... Well I wanted to make it big, but then I have show nicely on how the boiler gets connected to a burner/fuel tank which is connected to a engine whose piston are inter connected with cylinders which is linkable to a flywheel and stuffs like condenser, valve, gauges etc... Which I am not really familiar on( btw which I am working on)... So I apologize for it... Will try to make an even better working mechanism next time...

Haha, okay! It was just a suggestion, but it's just a hassle to change it, so leave it the way it is.. again - good luck!!

Excellent work! Just one suggestion: steampunk stuff is usually made of brass (sometimes iron). This would look extra cool if it was brass.

avatar DanLundberg

Cool, but as you admit, this is modern and not particularly steampunk because of material and background (as others have pointed out).

Author, the change you made looks nice, and definatley on theme - much more so than your previous one, but in my opinion, the futuristic or modern one looked a lot better. the reflections you made on the body itself looked great. I'm not saying you should change this back, because i do think this is more on theme, i just wanted to let you know, in case you were having second thoughts, that you're previous entry was absolutely magnificent. Good luck, once again (sorry to have left three comments on one entry.)
