Victorian Inspector Gadget by chrisbeaver Victorian Inspector Gadget by chrisbeaver
(uploaded as traditional since the tones were just 10 minutes to slap over an altogether more intricate pencil-drawing)

You can tell me that a steampunk Inspector Gadget reboot wouldn't be the best thing on TV, and I won't believe you :D

Scarlet-red animation pencil, printer paper, and 10 minutes of postwork in Photoshop 7.

If this were a TV show, I'd so watch it!

He looks like a more comically-serious kind of Gadget, and also seems a good deal smarter. But that may just be the monocle working its magic.

I like it and I agree this would be an great reboot (heck, Penny can be a blonde Sherlock Holmes). The funny thing is, I imagined a Middle Ages Gadget while playing the game Darksiders II with Penny armed with a fancy gauntlet and a shape-changing Brain.

Um...nah. A *real* steampunk Gadget is just a step too far. However, if you were to set it in an intentionally-steampunk future, THEN I'd believe you.

Thanks! I don't foresee having the time to go back and color this anytime soon, although I like to think that if I come back to this it'll be with a whole new drawing :)

Same theme, indeed -- I just feel like now I could probably do more with it than I could then.

That's an excellent artwork piece, except that your misspelling ruined it all. I hate to be the first to point it out.

Phoncible… Herionymous… GADGET!?!? Well, the "Victorian" period worked for Sherlock Holmes, so I guess it could work for Gadget, too! :-)

(I still don't know how Phoncible is pronounced…)

Glad ya liked it! :D I really wanna explore this idea further when I've found the time to.

FYI -- A few days ago I installed Morrowind (once again), and commenced patching it up with all the mods that make life in the game worth living. Better Almalexia was one of 'em :)

oh neato! :D

I've got a few other graphical improvement mods, but they're not posted here. They're on Planet Elderscrolls though. There's a couple weapons and a couple of architecture retextures, plus a model correction for Telvanni mushrooms and towers that gets rid of the seams that always pop up when texture replacers are used.

That's his niece Penny not his daughter and what does Mdms. Penelope mean?

chrisbeaver Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2009  Professional Filmographer
She is indeed his niece; I never said otherwise :) The name I gave, written in full "Mademoiselle Penelope", is just a proper name for her -- Penny being a shortened colloquial version that her stuffed-shirt British Uncle Gadget would find course and vulgar :P

I assume that's his daughter Penny behind him. It seems kind of wrong that you drew her so hot.

Penny's his niece, not his daughter -- But y'know, she doesn't have to be 11 :P I was thinking 16'ish, maybe 17, but I'll admit I don't have much reason for it (Beyond the fact that I don't know jack about Victorian kids' fashion beyond that it's a friggin' riot of frills ^^';)

person in the back, should at least draw their nose in. then you can tell if its a man or woman. now its just sneaky, but not prominent.

:iconchrisbeaver:
chrisbeaver Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2009  Professional Filmographer
Drawing the nose would be a bit difficult since I'd meant to draw her holding a hankerchief over it, reacting to Gadget's ridiculous steam output :D Guess I should've drawn it up a little higher to make that read better..
