Steampunk Softies

   Posted by: manny

If you’re a crafty type of person, you may really like this book called Steampunk Softies, for sale on Amazon for less than ten dollars.

You can learn how to sew these adorable steampunk dolls, doesn’t that sound awesome?

Staying true to steampunk style, Skeate and Tedman’s inventive Steampunk Softies feature prominent science fiction and fantasy elements, as well as anachronistic inventions and props. In addition, many have dual roles that add practicality to their punk existence–the Lady makes an excellent paperweight, while the Illusionist’s cloak doubles as a screen cleaner.

Despite their meticulous detailing, Steampunk Softies are simple enough for even a sewing novice to construct. A short biography accompanies each softie, providing a background story for each character. Also included are a complete list of supplies, illustrated step-by-step blueprints, and a handy, back-of-the-book reference section that provides tips on aging and distressing project materials.

Check out the awesome steampunk design on this t-shirt. I do believe that’s Sonic the Hedgehog! You can buy this shirt at Jinx.com for around $20.00.

Very cool!

You are my finest creation, my living legacy; made of nuts and bolts and yet full of compassion, a hero for the ages. Go now! Unleash the unimaginable speed which is your birthright, and reclaim the rings of power that our evil robotic foe has scattered across the land.

Steampunk Kangaroo?

   Posted by: manny

This amazing sculpture exists somewhere in the outback of Australia.

I’m not sure that this truly qualifies as steampunk, but the gears and rusted metal give it a steampunky look, though. The hydraulic legs are a nice touch, this is definitely cool art! Did you notice the little joey in its pouch?

Steampunk Portal Fan Art

   Posted by: manny

Here’s one for Portal fans, if you can stop playing Portal 2 for a moment. :)

A steampunk portal! What a cool drawing. Though it does appear the gal is just going in a circle. A nice hat tip to the “Steam Valve” too, the company that makes the game.

Very well done!

Victorian Star Trek

Victorian Star Trek? Yes! This is why Photoshop was invented, so we can turn our favorite sci fi characters into old school Victorian gentlemen and ladies.

Very well done!

Painting of Steampunk Frankenstein Hand

   Posted by: manny

Talented artist Kevin Mowrer has drawn this beautiful steampunk “Frahnknshtyne’s Hand,” isn’t it incredible?

Well, I decided that adding another emotive object into the shot would take away from the singular narrative moment of seeing through Wyctor’s eyes the raised hand that isn’t your own. I completed the victorian etching on the metal and pivots and knuckle joints and I think this one is ready for its place in the story.

Master Mowrer is drawing and creating various characters for an epic Frankenstein-inspired steampunk tale!

Unusual Digital Art: Steampunk Wonder Woman

   Posted by: manny

Take a look at this uniquely awesome rendering of Steampunk Wonder Woman, created by digital artist PapaNinja. Wow, amazing. Love the tesla lasso!

Apparently the artist originally wanted to use Linda Carter as the model, but his wife insisted on posing herself. A wise choice, I would say. Very well done!

My first idea was to make a picture of Lynda Carter but my wife was not agree … So once again, Chloé was my model ^^ I think someone at DC have already done a steampunk version of some of their heroes but I’m not sure. I like the idea of a “tesla lasso” even if it would be totally useless … I was very inspired by Sir Thomas Lawrence, one of my favourite painter. I tried to have a more “painting-like” renderinf this time. Done with Photoshop, on a single layer ^^’

Steampunk Star Wars Imperial Walker

   Posted by: manny

A Star Wars Imperial Trooper, steampunk style! I think this picture has been around for a while, but it’s a classic. Doesn’t it look like a giant walking mailbox? LOL

“This should cause those filthy rebels ample distress!”

Steampunk Artist Raises Money for Art Show

   Posted by: manny

A gal named Talitha has cleverly raised money for a steampunk art show in Pomona, CA. She needed $2500 for the show, so she listed the project on KickStarter.com and made the above video. She soon got 41 Backers and raised $2,581.

Very cute, and I’m glad she could raise the money. Sounds like a great art show!
