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 )

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!

Wow, I am simply blown away by this! I seems to flawlessly combine 'The Iron Giant' and 'Metropolis' (both old black n'white and the animated version) with a touch of 'Bioshock'. The composition, colors, shading, and highly stylized industrial elements are...astonishing.

I say this with the greatest of sincerity, keep up the good work!

I love the lighting. The combination of the glowing eyes and the limp posture gives an odd effect...is it conscious, or not? Alive as it is being assembled and operated on, or never truly alive at all?

I love that dark overall tone. Realy brings out the brassy/coppery steampunk style. I can only wonder how many years of diligent practice it will take for me to reach this level. Are you in to mecha, by chance?

This is amazing. And it envoked a kind of childish fear, because it reminded me of that carnival robot from Schooby Doo.

As well as the Positronic Man.

Again, that DD was very much deserved!
