well here are just few concept ideas. pleas dont mind the messines, i was prettymuch just splattering colours.

so ok here is my idea.

when i first saw this challenge i badly wanted to make a vampire steampunk theme, but i didnt want it to be just some random theme.
i was reading bram stokers dracula book some time ago, and decided i wanted to use dracula in this picture forward on.

but also i did some historical researchand somehow decided to mix both. bram stokers vampire dracula, and the historical dracula with all his corpses impaled on stakes.

so here is the explanation about the picture above. i imagine a picture on a huge battlefield, with dracula riding on a giant dragon mecha - thingie, since dracula in a historical version was known to lead the "order of the dragon" which is why he got his name--dracul--dragon.

also i meant to put alot of his victims as his personal army. people impaled on a stake would be manipulated as his "undead soldiers" (something like a necromancer) riding armored boars (because romanian woods are known to have these types of animals in it) that also had armoured dragion heads and are also controlled.

well this is pretty much the basic idea.. so i hope as i go i will develop it into a better story/picture.

thank you all for a warm wellcome, and good luck to you all on this great challenge, and have fun :D

I would think with the steampunk... have the undeads limbs be made up of steampunk leftovers.. Like scavanged bits almost.

But I like the previs.. My pre-vis is much...rougher..

Lordrych: thank you very much :)
Squibbit: thanks friend :)
eevilmouse: well of course im not going to just use impaled corpses, there are corpse leftovers such sa upper parts ripped and fused with steampunk parts. so yes i had that in mind too.
variety makes it more interesting, and thank you very much for your reply :) i very much aprecciate it.

NOOB!

Damn you people work fast! I like the idea of vampiric and steampunk together, a brilliant combination... though I also like the look of the dragon... a steampunk dragon would rock.
Best of luck, Linda!

Working this version of a steampunk Dracula, and a large battlefield is a good idea.
I wish you to have a lot of time to do a fine art piece and I'm happy to see you in this challenge :arteest:

well nothing much, i was playing a little with the design for the dragon on top of which a dracula will be sitting.

i was thinking to put him on top op his head instead of the back.. being "the brain" of the whole operation.

i was thinking about the wings.. to have them or not...

ah well later i guess..

I love dragons, Calisto, and yours is awe-inspiring. But I really love your theme. Your idea for Dracula is amazing and I will be following this thread.

You struck my soft spot! I love dragons! This one is nothing short of awesome. However (boo i know :P), the gears are great for the theme, but feels like it needs more tubes or rivets, or something that's an indication that this might be steam powered (or fit in the steam world). Or maybe I'm just thinking too close to the classic idea of steam punk...that's very possible. Just my opinion though.

In the mean time, this will go into my screen saver sideshow :P

Wao, the concept for the dragon is beautifull, I can't wait to see it drawed on the final scene

silenceimpaired: thank you :)
cg-designer: thanks
JTD: thank you very much. when i first saw this challenge i was instantly struck by the idea :D this is going to be fun :P
ace4016: thank you very much! truthfully i was about to put steam coming out of the spikes on his back, and from those holes under the tail spikes, also it might have steam coming out of its eyes as well.. but.. i forgot to draw that lol.thank you very much for reminding me :D
DeeVad: thank you very much, my friend :)
AUMAKUA: thank you very much :)

Nice work there....I suggest on adding some extra fuel tanks and create a fire breathing mechanism! It would really look cool.

Great design so far... you need to look the perspective again...the far wing for example do not match with the view of the legs - tune that little bit and make some depth of the different parts in general, and i think i will work much better..i think it's of necessity to put some tubes, cogs, gears to fit more with that challenge requirements...overall the design look good and you are in the right direction to accomplish the mission...so good luck with the challenge.
