Steampunk Sketches A by DNA-1 Steampunk Sketches A by DNA-1
Some of the sketches I created for CITY OF HEROES' Steampunk-themed costume set. Obviously the genre's really broad, with nearly endless possibilities, so while this is meant to cover some of the obvious things people expect in a Steampunk set, there's a lot more I'd like to explore in a future set (like Western and robot sub-themes). But of course that depends on how well the first set sells, so make sure you buy one, 'kay? ;p

I absolutely LOVE steampunk, and I only wish that I'd been able to take this to a fully-painted treatment.

Awesome artwork! For my wedding this fall we're doing Steampunk. I would love to get an outfit like 'High Society', but 'Mechanist' is pretty badass too! So many amazing possibilities!!

Am I the only one that thinks that the Gypsy's gun is a bit...nerf-like?

that one's based on someone's homemade steampunk pistol that I found online which was indeed built on top of a nerf toy.

These sheets were really just ideations--broad ideas of things we could consider adding to the game. (If a lead had approved that sort of gun to move forward, I would've added a bit more to it.)

I love your art, and I loved this game to death. You wouldn't be working on Heroes and Villains/Project Phoenix, would you?

I'm not, but I'm watching with interest. If they wanted some key art or something from me, I'd be game. :)

Now, are they two different projects entirely,
Or do they collaborate?

Haven't had the chance. LOVE steampunk though, and would love to get more assignments in the genre.

Hey! Well i'm currently helping with the development of a turn based Steampunk RTS game on the Unreal Engine.

I'm the 3D model artist on it and i have to design tanks and other vehicles for it but, as you can imagine, it's quite a lot of work to have to do the concept, the modeling, the uVW unwrapping and the texturing of each thing.

So if you'd be interested in possibly coming up with an idea for a steampunk military vehicle then i'd love to see it and possibly use it!

Ooh--sounds cool! Certainly sounds like something I'd want to play. Don't have the time to contribute now, as I'm currently doing the rounds in search of a new concept job, but still--thanks!
