Default Papalati - March/April

Alright I'll give the challenge system another chance. Only because Mike's the man. :bow:


Alright, this is just part A of my concept, part B is coming and should be up tomorrow.

This is still going to go through some changes. I just havent decided what limb to lop off.

Alright I think young train engineer look maybe mid 1860's alright.

Like I said before the fantastical/scifi is really coming in part B.

Stay Tuned!

Okay here is my "Steam" concept Part B....

Its a steam-based mech. Made of pure Iron Ore.

So there will be rust of some kind, I think....

Alright.... Time to take a break.... I hate concepting.

cool robot! I'd recommend working on the robot first, and then if you have time, the guy.
