Steampunk by PReilly Steampunk by PReilly
I've always been interested in retro-futuristic style (Steampunk, Future noir) so I decided to create a piece for the genre.

Hidden away in an undiscolosed English location , a victorian era battle robot is being built. Only a hand full of people (Scientists, government officials, and a few high society rich folk) get a sneak peak at the unfinished project.

Suggester said: The copper tones applied in this piece really caught my eyes. The author created a steampunk aura and mixed it with a retro design that combines perfectly. Also, the shading is fantastic! ( Suggested by Atramina and Featured by taenaron )

I read that giant robots have a problem. They may need more power than their size dictates.

Wow, you've captured the "steampunk" feeling that I look for.  The tophats, goggles, and lace don't do it for me.  The copper, cogs, squeaky clockwork, and mad science is the flavor I go for.

This piece caught my eye right away. There is a weight in the arm that conveys that this robot is heavy. The light and shadow play is brilliant. And I like the short write up for it too. Just that small piece conjures a much longer and deeper story.

Amazing! Great work!
