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

Wow great Idea I can't wait to see how this pans out!! Steampunk vampire good Idea.

11 November 2008, 09:55 PM
nice ideas and info bits about the boars n stuff :)

11 November 2008, 10:02 PM
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..

11 November 2008, 10:40 PM
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.

11 November 2008, 11:26 PM
hello missy,been a whiiiiiiile? neb still around these parts?

nice idea,needs more gears and oil hehe

11 November 2008, 11:27 PM
best of luck for sure - great idea :D

11 November 2008, 12:08 AM
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.

Hey Linda,

Like a lot your mix of Dracula concepts, very original :D Your idea sounds really cool and nice designs on your sketches. Cant wait to see more updates on your concept! Good Luck!!

11 November 2008, 08:06 AM
Looks great! i like more the sketch with dracula mounted in a dragon

11 November 2008, 11:39 PM (

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..

11 November 2008, 11:42 PM
Ferx: thank you :D

bandro: thank you very much.. the sketch below is the design of the riding minions

11 November 2008, 11:55 PM
I really like where you are headed with this!

11 November 2008, 12:04 AM
Your dragon looks very cool. Nice work :)

11 November 2008, 12:29 AM
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.

11 November 2008, 01:41 AM
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

11 November 2008, 09:43 AM
Wao, the concept for the dragon is beautifull, I can't wait to see it drawed on the final scene

11 November 2008, 10:05 AM
The dragon concept looks amazing! it's going to be an awesome entry :thumbsup:

11 November 2008, 03:30 PM
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 :)

11 November 2008, 06:24 PM

SAW your dragon... simply superb... with gears and springs;)...... waiting for coloring...

All the best....

11 November 2008, 08:01 PM
EEK! That dragon sure looks lethal! Nice work :thumbsup:

11 November 2008, 08:19 PM
Dragons are my favorite beast, and your dragon sketch is very nice and impressive !! :bowdown:

Good luck for the challenge !

11 November 2008, 06:04 AM
Nice work there....I suggest on adding some extra fuel tanks and create a fire breathing mechanism! It would really look cool.

12 December 2008, 02:38 PM
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Happy birthday Calisto !

12 December 2008, 05:16 PM
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 good luck with the challenge.

12 December 2008, 05:35 PM
hai impressive work .

12 December 2008, 03:36 AM
