Okey after a few days of brainstorming and thinking ... I got the idea.

I'll make a flying mechanical steampunk island ... I know i know it's sick :D
I'll make strange houses on it with strange people, trees, cars ..etc. The island itself will bee flying with steam engine ..
I would like too place some ballons near to it ... they help the island to navigate..
There are many small details that I have in my mind but for now .. this is enough.

i hope you get the basic idea. I didn't had time to draw and make a sketch, here comes the weekend hopefully I can make it. To understand more my idea I'll post some pictures that I downloaded from google fo reference.

That's an original idea! There is a anime movie called "Steamboy" directed by katsuhiro otomo.
They show a flying steam propulsed castle at the end of the movie. Maybe you can get some ideas from that.

Good luck! ;)

These are the possible island ... but I'll think I will mix them.

What do you think ??

I'm finding it hard to comment because I'm not sure what legend/myth your basing your art off of. What's the story that you are using?

Okey let me sleep a little ... :d
then in the morning I'll tell my story about this ..

And I think everything gets cleaner when I start to model things.. My drawings skills are not the best :(

Okey .. maybe the story was not so obvious. You know I have a picture annd any ideas in my head, it takes time to clear things up.

Today I dived into a bunch of books .. and one of my favorit sites.. the good old wikipedia.
To my suprise there are many books, novels, films that features a flying, floating island.

There is also a very good defination.

Floating island: in fiction (sometimes called a flying island), is a fictitious landmass that either floats in a body of water or flies above the surface of the earth or in some cases through the depths of space, defying gravity.

I would like to list a few books that contains flying islands : - Homer's: The Odyssey
- C. S. Lewis:Perelandra
- The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
- The Life of PiOr other stuff like the Gorillaz music video for Feel Good Inc.which features one of the band members on a windmill-powered floating island, a floating island is commonly used in Japanese anime as a metaphor for childish idealism and naiveté.

So if you think there are tons of stories for flying islands.. I didn't mentioned any Japan anime because than i have to sit here and write for days.

I don't want to copy things I'm just getting my inspiration from these things mixing with Steampunk art. I would like to make my own story based on these stuff in this post and everything that I posted so far.

A very horrible thing happened .. I was testing yesterday some stuff to model my island when my Dell computer died ..:(

So I am off for a few days when another computer will arrive to me. Then I think will post my modeling WIP..

Better luck for everybody...
