steam-punk WIP Final Contest Entry!

Final Entry for the Damnation "Design a Steampunk Video Game System" with a little guide to what some of the more important pieces are! Special from me to you!
I'm still going to work on the piece, like I would love to texture the engine... there is a lot I would do differently looking back on it... but I think I've learned a lot about how to model more mechanical things and I've also learned what I'm lacking when it comes to modeling mechanical things so I can work on them later... I AM however going to stop working on it for the moment... I'm kinda relieved the contest is over so I think I'm going to start up a new character... I think I'm going to work on the Nun character I made earlier in the blog... although I'm going to work more into the concept to weed out any areas I might be confused on how to model later... I'm pretty excited... although I think I'm going to take a break for the next couple days and start that monday-ish although (I'm probably going to break down and start it tomorrow...) WOWZERS this is a lot of words for a Sketchblog entry... I guess I'm done...

Tell me what you think!

steam-punk WIP 4

I'm just posting for progress, This is what I have done with my re-concepted furnace/boiler/generator... in my earlier "concept" I did wasn't sufficient... let alone interesting enough to follow through with... I really just rushed to build the thing without thinking too much about it... so I put a lot of research into it and now it's supposed to be a scavenged steam-engine modified to generate electricity.... A lot of the bits and pieces are missing (a lot of the parts that actually make it a 2-way valve system for instance) but this is the over-all look of the thing, all I need to do is add some magnets around the generator and all of the smaller parts of the 2-way valve system ... ya that's a long description... This isn't the whole scene because I haven't worked on the other parts recently, this is just for the engine.

Steam-punk WIP Day 3

Day 3 of Steam-Punk project... Didn't get to do as much today as I wanted... I actually didn't wake up till 4PM soooo it's obvious to draw conclusions that I'm pretty spacey with around 13 hours of sleep the night before... ANYWHO I did get to work on the furnace finally... I'm still working on how to add a coal pile... I dunno... that's going to be a problem solving event, if you have ANY suggestions please tell me... I think the Chair is pretty much done... I am going to have to add a power line from the [yet to be created] power source to the chair but other than that I think I'm sticking with it as is...

PLEASE give me any critique/ideas you got for me!
It's probably only my current state of mind... but I feel like I'm running out of steam... HAH! STEAM! ya... I'm pretty wiped out...
