Concept / pre-visualization: the Church of Steam



we are in the catacombs of the "church of steam" the residence of "Monk" - once a talented scientist he started to become more and more obsessed by empowering his rickety body with more and more steam powered gadgets. over the years he lost his mind and started to terrorize his environment with colossal machines, ignoring the law and the rights "normal" people have.

Deep in the catacombs of his giant laboratory he has to face an adventurer named Limblin who was hired by the people of a close village to make an end to the monks lordship.

Have you seen the anime film "Steamboy"? Great film and the main character's father fits your discription pretty well. Nothing wrong with that of course, the concept sketches look great so far, I love the dark and moody look of it with the limited palette that you have used.

hmm no, havent seen it... but i have to admit that the idea of an scientist gone crazy while enhancing himself is not really creative.. lol i would say 50% of all comic villains belong to this bad guy stereotype..

oh i totally forgot... i decided to change the story a bit for more drama.

those punks in the middle have been sneaking into Monks Church of Steam to steal the "peripheral singulum". it´s some kind of ultra hot plasma steam which, in this aggregate state, is able to think in a semi intelligent way.

without the singulum the monk is not able to control his mighty machines and the villagers will have a good chance to vanquish him. :-) Unfortunatly they´ve been caught and overhelmed by one of this creatures. while monk was sitting in the dark watching the whole show from his throne.

please someone correct me if my little story sounds like complete nonsense in my poor english

I'm just not very clear on what the thing at the far end of the room is supposed to be. Before it looked like an overhanging throne of some sort with somebody sitting in it watching over the room.. now I'm really unclear.

Great sketches! Can't wait to see where this is going to - very promising!
