Because there are some nice features like linking pictures in descriptions with a visible thumbnail and not only as a boring link and other nice stuff like this, I thought a premium membership would be kinda nice, to give you a more interlinked and pleasurable experience of my work.

So if you have some useless points picking up dust somewhere, feel free to drop them here.
It's certainly appreciated very much!

Thank you all for your consideration.
Yours truly
Arsenal Best

My love for Scifi started in the age of 6 while reading most of Jules Vernes works. After years of costume and prop building in "another galaxy far, far away", discovering Steampunk in 2010 was instantly a perfect match!
SciFi in the victorian style of Jule Verne. What could be better?

My approach on Steampunk design is quite simple: victorian aestetics combined with functionality.
There are many out there defining steampunk by simply bashing brass tubing together. The more the better.
I have a different opinion:

1. If you take a look at the victorian age, you will soon realize that one essence of it was, that even machines and purely functional equipment was made to look like a unique and elegant piece of art.

2. Every piece on every gadget and contraption I conceive should still look like it is there for a reason and has a plausible function instead of "just been put there".
To use a phrase of Walt Disney they must have at least a sense of" the plausible implausible".

3. An overall coherent concept should be visible throughout the whole design. I'm not a fan of looking like a walking flea-market.

That's the design philosophy I try to follow.

The accurat Starfleet Deltas almost made me crazy (no, it wasn't a readily available fabric)...

My dear friends, watchers and visitors,

It's more than overdue, that I get myself posting again here on Deviantart, since the last one published is now more than a year old! :shocked:

Mainly to real life interference, I didn't find the time nor the calm to show you something new. However that doesn't mean our Steampunk paused in the same time as well. Quiet on the contrary!

We had so many wonderful shoots and where very busy in what sparetime we had, to create new stuff.
There are tons of awesome pictures collected over the last one and a half year, waiting to be shared with you. Some of them, showing different sides of us you haven't seen before, but all definitly great (if I may say so myself).

Also many new props and contraptions came into being and those as well, shall be presented to you.

I will try to bring them to you on a regular basis again, so stay tuned.
For starters I will break the silence with one of my most favourite pictures...
