Steampunk City by AJChimaera Steampunk City by AJChimaera
The rough edition of what would've been my submission to a Steampunk-themed Theme-of-the-Month, had I got it done in time. Inspired by MS Rise of Legends PC game - will be recognizeable by some as similar to the Pirata city, except not deserted this time.
Black pen on A5 with rough coloured pencil touch-up to give the general idea.

I really like the perspective and detail you used on this one!

Thanks! Unfortunately, having put detail into the city itself, the surrounding skyscape seems far too empty, even with the few dirigibles and flyers. That's as it should be, but after I'd done it I couldn't help but think what else I could do to flesh it out.

I fear if I do this again, it'll end up one of those that you continually add loads of fanciful details until it needs to just be thrown away :P

I'll just have to do two versions then ;P

I think that the contrast between the dynamic city and the negative space surrounding helps with the effect. XD Don't pull a Monet and ruin your picture trying to 'make it better'. *grins* I'd like to see the updated version, though!

will you try and do that final entry in the end or did you give up the thing completely? I like it too so far, it would have been a great submission, even in this 'rough' state.

*nudge AJ* :D

I only just finished the sketch the day after entries closed, and the colour shading the day after that :P
So that's one opportunity missed - I've had enough of missing out though so I'm organized this month :D

I am going to do my best to do the big proper version, with a bit of a redesign. The city in this version is too close a resemblance to the Rise of Legends inspiration - I'm going to try to come up with something more unique ;)
