Latest Update: Work In Progress: Nessie WIP (

Rough 3D visualization of soon-to-be steampunk Nessie.

After a lot of thought, I am leaning towards doing a steampunk robot version of the Loch Ness Monster. My initial idea to do the Icarus myth seemed to be an overly-popular one, and who knows, maybe this one is too, but it hits a lot of elements I want to include. I love the idea of a kid and his dad fishing on the Loch when they are rudely assaulted by a (obviously!) madman who has built himself a robot sea monster.

Of course, the kid is thrilled and the dad baffled and/or terrified. I envision the final image being a paintover of a 3d setup, the first pass of which you see here.

Experimenting with different camera angles. This works a lot better for showing off what will be the segmented mech detail on the monster, as well as the hidden cockpit where the driver sits and pulls levers and such. It also shows the boat occupants' faces better.

I'm a loch ness fan, so looking forward to see how this one progress. Good luck.
