Ok well looks like I'm in, now will I have the time to finish that is another thing (so damn busy in the next months)

Here's my idea

I'm going to steampunk the Horse of Troy, my idea is still blurry in my head but should clear in the next few days.

So seems like the trojan horse is a popular subject for this challenge, but my idea is made up so I'm going for it any way

My idea is pretty simple but should be cool

start with a black screen and sounds of steaming pumps, with a few shots on close ups of parts of the horse all cut with black screens, slowly revealing the entire horse. Then a shot of the horse in front of a huge metallic gate. From the gate a mechanical eye comes out of a trap door to inspect the horse a bit like the one in Jabba's palace. Once the eye is satisfied the gate will slowly open, then I'll have the title of my movie with a coming soon

Trying to keep this simple, because the horse will be lots of work and time on my part is very restricted, and I really want to finish this challenge.

Work In Progress: it begins :)



Well this is the start of my modeling, I'm starting with the boiler since it is the source of energy of my horse and I'm gonna build the horse around it.

Work In Progress: boiler



So added a few detailed and started some of the main piston/engine, and started some texturing, the map are far from final I might get them dirty, will see when I have my horse finished.

great modeling/shading/texturing.

it's my opinion, but maybe it needs a little more futuristic elements? That's what steampunk is all about. Not all, but at least a part.

Hmm futuristic elements for steampunk not sure about that, steampunk is about making stuff futuristic with old technology from the insustrial time. So yes it will look futuristic when I have the horse parts over the engine, like plating armor and stuff.

My main reference for steampunk are movies like Steamboy, City of lost children, Atlantis, or Jules Verne's universe that is the direction I'm trying to take more then movies like Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow who is a bit to futuristic for my liking more Art Deco then steampunk in my opinion (well don't get me wrong I love Art Deco )

Right now I'm mostly doing to basic engine and figuring out what will be moving for my animation, once I'm done with the pistons I'm gonna start the back plating and tail.

Well, it's always hard to give crits and such in a WIP, but what i try to say is that the futuristic element in steampunk is also kind of located in design. But at the moment the model looks like it could have existed in the 19th century. But hey, it's a WIP like i said so can change every day while you add to it.
good luck

Hey Nico while you were writing I was editing my post to explain myself a bit , I know exactly what you mean, by the way love your AT-AT Zep (would make a nice boom if it blew) Star wars would of been a hundred time better if it have been steampunk.

i'm also in this big challenge as well. I finished my walker and just had to do this one too. I normally don't post much in the beginning cause there could be a lot of confusion by crits and suggestions. Since posting in other thread is a must for this challenge, i try to spend the time right by giving more feedback then just to say "great work!" posts.

And i get whay you are saying about the films. Had the same thing yesterday when i saw the golden compass. It's not steampunk but it's based on it. So there are many styles and therefore many confusion.

cheers

Well in your post you said "But at the moment the model looks like it could have existed in the 19th century" that for me is worth a million compliments, cause that is exactly the direction I'm trying to take
