Latest Update: Concept / pre-visualization: Steam Cycle Ideas (

11 November 2008, 06:42 PM
Ok putting my idea down here, and later I will draw some concept sketches.. I am thinking of a group of riders.. On steam bikes.. This inspired because a friend of mine is turning her Harley into a steampunk bike.. so this is kind of an omage to her :)...Not sure yet if they are wheeled, or flying. I kinda like the idea of flying.. but I need to naildown how they look. Maybe do a bit of planning on each..

Well here is my sketches for the cycle.. I will probably do some mockups for where I want them. I originally had the idea for a flying cycle.. then I though "Hey wouldn't these look cool with tank treds.." and they do.. but being a rider myself, you cant lean on treds.. so I tried to design a tred where you could lean.. and I just like the idea of the flying one much better (even though its been done alot)... so yea.. Once I have the over all look of the cycle nailed down, I plan on detailing out the engine.. as I want to have one cycle in the foreground, fairly large to see all the detail.

Have yet to decide on the wings yet.. I like the wings on the front.. not so sure on the side..
