Steampunk, an awesome mix of the past and the future, Victorian Industrialism dipped in Sci-fi with a twist of fantasy. I love it and my latest three images has been a Steampunk adventure. Three cheeky fantasy spy gadgets with lots of detail and impossible mechanics that somehow makes perfect sense in my mind. 🙂
Right in the beginning of the first lockdown I tried my hand at Steampunk-Bugs and now with the latest attempt, I can see an improvement on the technical side, more experience in my finale editing and blending techniques in Photoshop and maybe just a better sense of what I want the final image to look like. It didn’t come without a struggle! I think every New Media artist knows that it takes a daily practise to improve and with that comes learning curves and mini breakthroughs that feels huge. Maybe this is one of those moments.
I will now introduce my Spy Gadgets:
Steampunk Dragonfly Spy Gadget
Steampunk Seahorse Spy Gadget
Steampunk Treasure Bug Spy Gadget
“ Steampunk is… a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun! ”— George Mann
