Into the Depths by PReilly Into the Depths by PReilly
Again with the steampunk thing. A bit of the old "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea".

Our explorer investigates the depths of the sea in search of a sunken vessel rumored to hold a fortune in treasure.
Legend has it that the vessel is guarded by an unkown beast.....But who believes in legends anyway, right?


EDIT -

Been getting a lot of feedback in terms of similarities to the video game "Bioshock"

Just to point out that this character is based on the old diving suits worn during the turn of the century.
Thes vintage diving suits were around long before Bioshock.

Take a look -

Obviously Bioshock was inspired by these dive suits.

Awesome, I always loved 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, I so wanted to visit the undersea world in a fantastic Victorian submarine led by a crazy, enigmatic Captain with a mysterious past. :D But I could happily skip the "being dragged off by killer octopi" moment, though, lol!! I love those old diving suits, too. They sure knew how to dive in style in Victorian times.

Very Nice :) Just to let you know, the reason people think it's like bioshock is cause of the glowing eyes on the helemt, i think. The big daddy's are just big diving suit enemy's in the game with eyes that glow
