Victorian Inspector Gadget

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.

quite unique i like it alot i would love to see it with more color though if u dont mind me asking but other than that is really good
chrisbeaver's avatar
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 :)
frozon40's avatar
ight man i like the idea of it being a whole new drawing like u said will it be the same theme or would u change it up that's my question
chrisbeaver's avatar
Same theme, indeed -- I just feel like now I could probably do more with it than I could then.

oh okay from one artist to another i wish best of luck

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

This is really cool.
Rock-Raider's avatar
That is a great idea.:)
chrisbeaver's avatar
Thanks! I like to think it'd be pretty cool; I only wish I had the time and the rights to do something with it :D

1) The art. Is amazing. Damn.
2) I want this to happen. I want this to be real so bad it hurts.

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…)

(calmly) Go, Mr. Gadget. Go.
