3dM@niak - March/April
here we go here's concept, something like assault machine, steam powered, with automatic-arrow-launcher, 2 cutters and 4 legs First i wanted to do something with a zeppelin, but i decided to do this... U think it's good enough or should i make another sketch?



Probably will make many changes during modeling, it's easier to correct some things in 3d than on sketch http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/8...smallerbm3.jpg

i usually don't stop after making one sketch only, and i'm not to satisfied with first one (very large, but not to interesting) so i decided to try making something smaller, but more interesting...
In steampunk my favorite idea is flying - so i decided to give it a try like a jet, but steamy way

I prefer this second sketch... what do you think?

hmm... keep thinking about this, and i have one idea, final, and the best.
Symbol of steampunk for me is a factory, with all those machines and power sources and everything... So i'm going to try to make a steampunk factory with zeppelins, trains, transportations, steam-plant, air base, wind generators, and all those machines

So if i make it in time - it'll be enormous if I don't - i'll take part of it and post it as final

So this is gonna be a large WIP

Sketches soon

So here it is, water tank is finished, i think this is enough details, i mean all the nails and rivets are there, everything is divided in parts and segments... so i think this is it
