This is my first quick sketch in my first challenge.
I imagine world where dragons live. But they are not friendly. People have to fight with them. This scene shows the steam powered flying ship in action.

The Cerberus, beast from the Greek Hell. Can be more proper theme for this challenge, than previous dragons.
Imagine him as a giant mechanical robot, no one can pass.

C&C are very welcomed.

Cerberus is a great idea (it crossed my mind to do it too!) A big mechanical dog guarding the underworld!

Currently your Cerberus looks too futureisitic and not enough turn of the century/victorian. making the brown area's look like wood would help. When I think of Steampunk I think of wood, iron and brass for primary building materials.

I like the idea but agree with last guy. You need to show the steam engine and the working gears. Yours looks too hi-tech.

Thank you Legacy40k and jwad.
I agree that this is little bit futuristic.
I still dont have clear idea how this gears and details should look like. I just make sketch for pose and basic shape.

I want to make this scene in 3D, so I'm going to do some detailed studies, and rotoscopies.

I will surely take your advice, and take some more ancient materials :)

I didn't have much time over weeked, so I just tried to make same detailed parts of my cerberos, mainly the head.
The fox type, maybe looks more stempunky, but I like more the lion type with horns. I'll probably stay with this one and will tune it up.

So, I started to work on a model, this is more accurate look at my cerberus, probably more steamy design. :)

This is the model of cerberos head.

this is the basic shape of the body. It is all around the steam boiler. Legs are powered by some gears and enginshafts.

After few days of silence. I am just uploading first render of shadered head. I suppose that it needs some improvement.

So C&C are welcomed as usual :)

Hello,
I finished design of head, and mouth opening gear mechanism. I changed steel shader, to look more dirty and ancient. I will try to add some dirt to Brass material.
