SteamPunk
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction.
Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th
century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy.

Ok the assignment is removed so now it is just a SteamPunk Thread.

Thanks guys, I have been in contact with the mods so hopefully we can put this thread on top in here. Smile
Lol I just realized it is gonna be difficult to make an animation with a book cover but I am gonna let it be there, maybe some genious animater could come up with something. Shocked

Anyway, I think this could be a good round.
I am gonna do some sketches then try to model the scene, then perhaps if all works out well make it an illustration combo with 2d and 3d.
Hmm maybe I will do a 3d sketch to come up with composition...

Steampunk is an awesome theme though, regardless whether one do 3d or 2d. I have been into steam for some time now.

I am glad you guys liked it, we did discuss it in the 3d thread Tomasis. Smile

I have been pushing some thoughts back and forth this week, kind of like this idea beneath.
Still very wip though.
Hope to see some wip stuff from you guys.


Title = Departure

Story; a boy leaving his parents at a young age ( why I don't know yet...), the departure (bookcover) takes place where the parents waves him goodbye at the dock. the zeppelin steam powered ship in the background which will bring him somwhere...

Think I will focus on this hug scene in my final, not sure at all about the composition, just had to throw these ideas down into this thread.
the father will have goggles and maybe a backpack, steam thingy. The woman will have headphones, hah steampowered.

Maan I can't really draw these days. Sad
Perhaps I should write down my sketches, lol.



ok let's get it on, you guys got til December 31. I think we can post the finished in this thread and then make a collection thread with all the finished works.
Let me know if we should have some prices....

matthew, i like your picture very much. Nice color choice.

Regarding composition, there are little things to say about. I'd like to see the ship to be placed more above so you can see more city between the family and ship (it feels pretty empty at the top of image). Another thing is it that at right side bottom it needs something more substantial or bright so the reader could move his eyes to the family from the right bottom.

Keep up drawing. I know you can draw because i've seen your wood strangely shaped monsters long time ago hehe

I will post wip today later Smile

Tomasis, wood shaped? lol, haha damn, I did make so many poor speedies back in the days haha. Yea you are right about the composition, good call. Right now I am mainly thinking about placement of characters in the scene. Look forward to see what you are scribbling on. Smile

Think I have some parts finished in my head, soma parts that I can model I believe before I start to think more about what to add....
Things to think about now*, platform, ballon zeppeling thingy, bridge pillar thingy behind the 3 main characters.
Ah well a lot of stuff.

Quick sketch, don't think the final will have a frontal. Looks flat those things.--

tree monsters? hehe wood sounds strange lol anyway it was mostly abstract definition which was cool.. i believe it was done with pencils. maybe you forgot Smile

anyway i post my scribble. I thought firstly of train, submarine looks more cool. i took background that reminds of old train station. there are different levels of bridges around hanged on walls .. metallic ones. the whole reminds a bit of titanic. more fine people are standing at higher level,on ground are poor folk with lots of stuffs, working people etc... maybe need to make submarine a bit different like futuristic.

im not good at title.,. what do you suggest? i love books of agatha christie

Ah yea I think I know which drawings you mean, they were pretty big those drawings... like 1 meter x 1.50meters I think.


Made a quick 3d test with the stairs, scribbled above it to see about composition. Think I would like the ship thingy to be low in the composition, otherwise it is gonna look it has been taking off already. Hmm...
Ah well that should be a later question anyway.

Tomasis, I'd suggest "abyss" (or "deep", less fancy; Agatha would use "abyss", wouldn't she? hehe): Murder in the Abyss?

Hmmmm... "Murder in the Abyss" is a song by a music group (group = In the Act of Violence), otherwise not a book name... Up for grabs! Very Happy

Am liking this thread/idea. Might decide to jump in (got some momentum going in the other project so am feeling optimistic). Smile

Thing I'd like to see: cool steam tech.

A zeppelin with steam coming out of it isn't a bad idea, but it's always cool to see interesting technology given the steam treatment. Like a "steam powered chainsaw" or a "steam powered extending bridge" or a "steam powered transforming vehicle".

Just wishing out loud. Smile

Sumaleth, Some real good ideas there, hah a steampowered chainsaw would be a blast. Smile Perhaps a bicycle with steam could work?
I have been thinking about to add that car I made from t_England's concept into my scene, I am still not solid down with placement in my scene as of yet though.


Lakka, Yea I really need a lot more time myself, good thing we made deadline in December. Smile
Love your scene, gonna be cool to see what more that you are gonna add to your scene.
Real interesting architecture btw, love it.


Still placement and composition, need that before I think about objects in the scene.
Hmm damn this was more difficult than I thought it would be. Think I will need all the time til December 31.

ok I haven't posted for a while, didn't wanna spam. I am working
on some stuff for this theme, it has to do with a concept modeling
that I am gonna use for the purpose of my illustration.
And then hopefully a final illustration.

I believe this was a very difficult theme, hard to make steampunk interesting in a scene unless one focus on an object.
Mostly I had problems with the theme working together with my title on the book, didn't wanna leave the initial idea with departure either.

Anyway, we had a speed concept session this week where we modeled a steam punk train.
Got the idea to use it for my bookcover here. So my illustration is both 2d and 3d, depicting a gigantic steam train on its departure.
I guess more of a finished sketch, don't wanna render it more because my painting skills are not what they used to be lol.

How's it going for you guys?

I love your last work,.. very much steampunk feeling.. Your next last is not bad, but it seems that it is harder to paint in such more advanced perspective if I had not any 3d myself.

im been pretty busy with other stuffs lately. i hope i will post something during weekend..as some parts of images or separate objects.

i think i will finish the image before deadline. Colors are always hard so I work with Bw, to finalize details and composition then add colors.

Tomasis, thank you. Smile

Here's the train model I used for my illustration, took me 5 hours to model, a speed concept session. Sure felt it was better than my sketchy zeppelin idea.
ok ok let's have something easier next time as a theme. Wink Twisted Evil

matthew, damn you are closer deadline.. your cheater Very Happy

personally I think, more difficult theme, the better. It makes us better artists. Challenge us ourselves more. It can be compared to 3ch from steambot. I love steampunk theme btw. I think it is good for some to put cool works to their portfolios.

durgledeep thanks for title.. it sounds good.. will use it Wink

sumaleth good point.. thanks to you, i got idea for guy who flies

lakka as I said before in speedie thread, I damn love moody feeling, colors..I look forward for more finish maybe more ideas.. I dont really mind that you do a submarine.. Wink two submarines, more cool

tzan thanks for links, good inspiration to take from

meon coool

now i post some parts of painting im working on.. i place flying guy to left part of image.. now i need make a study of submarine and work on people below

matthew, thanks Smile det var nära jag kunde få en praktikplats i ett litet spelföretag men distributören tillåter inte praktikanter Sad men vi har diskuterat om anställning möjligheter för nästa år så har jag lite förhoppningar. Jag får väl ansöka till några motion företag för att fylla skolans krav. Eller en liten reklam/webbyrå i värsta fall Very Happy Det är ju för tillfället iaf
