Hi all, I finally decided to create an account here to enter this cool challenge and your nice community.
Here is a first piece from my work in progress.

Wow, pretty nice stuff but I'm not seeing where the steampunk element is in this?

Hey man! Welcome! Nice piece I like the sense of proportion very much! How about posting some history so we can understand better where are you going with this challenge? Best luck!

SynthOrange> in fact this is just a background, the steampunk element will be animated in.

Scied> I'll try to be more explicit about the purpose in my next post, I will add the storyboard and some artworks very soon.

Thanks for your comments and the welcome guys.

Hi all,

I'm starting to be really out of time, i don't know if i'll manage to finish it. But here is a part of the cleaned animation; at least you can see how it moves. Some other frames will follow very VERY soon.

The man is the foreground is grabbing a broken sword in his right hand, it's not still there in this video ;-)
