This is SO cool.
I have no experience with this subject, but looking at artwork done by other people, seems amazing, so I'm looking foreward to dig into this.

Cheers and good luck to all of you!

@Richard: Thanks mate. Good luck to you too

I'm thinking of some kind of icaros/ikaros kinda thing, at least in theme.
I'll try get something down on paper, within the next couple of days.

STORYLINE:

OLD MAN STORY



The main character is old, really old. He is so old, that he is nearly dead, extremely bended foreward and bad walking.

His lifelong dream is to be able to fly freely like the birds do.



He has build a huge maching, 2-3 times bigger than himself, which can carry him in the air, at least in theory.

It has huge pipes and is build by all sorts of different stuff he has found.

He takes it on with a big struggle, the machine is really heavy.



After a few tries it takes off, and within few seconds he is in fact flying with the birds.

He gets more and more excited about it and pushes the machine beyonds its capablities.



It breaks apart in the air and he crashes down to the ground.

We see a flash back of him, perhaps narrated, writing a goodbye letter to his children, saying that they shouldn't worry, his biggest dream has come through, and he died a very happy man.

He takes a last look at the picture of his dead wife, before closing the envelope with the letter, putting it on the table.



Back in the present, we see a big carriage standing, top loadede with crap (pardon my french).

As he thinks he will die of the crash he instead lands in the big pile, surviving.

At first he lands on his back, with the maching in the dirt, but after a few seconds it tips over, pushing him into it, and settles on top.



END




I'm not sure about the whole steampunk thing. I've never involved myself into this theme, so if the story or the design lacks of steampunk-theme, please say so and I'll try to correct it.




Cheers
