PURE STEAM - Coalcycle by 47ness PURE STEAM - Coalcycle by 47ness
New vehicle art for Pure Steam: Westbound, yup it's the expansion set! :)

This is the coalcyle, the 'workhorse' of the wild west. One of my favorite pieces (I might add color to this bby when I have more time) ;P

EDIT: went ahead and added color. :dummy:

LMAO OH MAN THAT IS REALLY COOL
a steam-powered motorcycle omg that is TOTALLY what it would look like, too
what a really wild fusion of two very different aesthetics, I never thought they could go together like this but they DO, nice job--!

Cool design, does it turn thou? :D I think if the back wheel was adjustable It may be possible. Ninja Plot!

Tank-style steering probably. Some levers that can make flip out the sides to push the bike to safety in an emergency, maybe. ;P

I like those muted, almost sepia tones you've gone with- like a faded color photo. I suppose steampunk would have a lot of interesting tech- early color photos should be among them.

Or maybe a hand tinted b&w.

I feel like there needs to be a lasso at the rider's side.

An electrified lasso. :V

I understand perfectly.

Years ago; I had to do a bunch of game art pieces in color and then desaturate them to make them work. I needed to visualize the animals in color, the company needed grayscale for printing.

"Bout time!" I told myself while coloring it. XD; I had to backtrack a little and repeat a few rote 'finalization' steps from the grayscale version; not really that tedious but still a bit silly/annoying.

Here's the official text I worked off of :nod: ~

"The coalcycle is so common throughout the Feral Expanse it is nicknamed the ‘iron horse’. It resembles a scaled down locomotive, but travels on rubber wheels rather than steel rollers, and a single powerful lamp to light its way. The coal engine is balanced over the front two wheels and the pilot’s saddle rests in front of the wishbone holding the rear wheel. While steering with one hand the pilot must occasionally stoke the engine with coal with the other. Steam and smoke is funneled out the back of the vehicle. A variety of sidecars are available for the coalcycle: a steel cart to carry extra fuel and water, a seated car  for one passenger, or a weapon sidecar for a swivel gun and gunner."

Even lays it's own smokescreen! The mini-cowcatcher is a nice touch, a bit more of a front air deflector, however. Maybe against really small cows?
