So far in the last two weeks this is what i managed to get to done. Right now he's sitting at about 75-80% done modeling wise. Got a few little odds and ends. All the little wiring and details.

airborn: thanks man. Ya, i really like this guy. Im starting to like him more than my two main characeters...hmmm:|

Ok.
STORY TIME!!

Close encounters of the steam kind

A lovely little planet by the name of nerna, in the lonely galaxy of Nerna23023 is home to a race known only to outsiders as nernians. Current reconasense of this race/planet indicate that they are made up entirely of the cutest people/plants/animals/rocks in the entire galaxy. Primarily cause the rest of the civilised universe has decided that there is no need to ever go there, due entirely to the fact that they wouldn't want to ruin the cuteness.

Unfortunatly space travel comes with its consequences. One such consequence is boredom. Boredom usually leads to drinking, heavily. Which thus inturn leads to stunt drunk piloting (there is still no conclusive reason for this, but some say its the thrill of it all). Which at speeds in excess of 1.2 million miles an hour has been proven to be nearly impossible to do without smashing into a planet or meteor or another stunt pilot. Now we all know everyone likes a challenge. Especially one that has been proven ten thousand times over to be impossible.

Well as a result of this impossible feat, the nernians on this fine nermmer day will come in contact with one of the ugliest/drunkest races in space (they don't really care about being classified as this. It has something to do with being completly anihilated everyday proceeding there first day of exsistense). Thus causing a rippling effect of chaos and general un-cuteness amongst the nernians.


My final submission image will be of first contact.

Great concepts! I like the design of this steam powered robot. Very unique and has a personality, which is always hard to convey when designing characters. Your stroy sounds interesting too, keep up the great work!

looking good. Interesting design for the body. I love cybernetics and mechanical mayhem so this should prove to be interesting.

Somehow I missed this ;) I like all things steam powered, and your designs look very nice. That big robot could use more smooth, round shapes for the chest and feet, as now they look like they belong more to a tank ;). Also, elbow joint would need some kind of a power device, more than a hinge :)

Techniquelly speaking, I think your machines are coal powered not steam powered.....

Very intersting solution.... although it is amazing you are not the only one doing steam powered tech.

Your character designs are very clever. I am wondering what kind of idea you have in the way of a composition??

I like the direction of your work will be keeping a eye on it.

exelent work mate! My only concern will be the feet, those are really flat compare to the rest of the design, personal opinion. I would add more style to the feet.
