Steampunk Myths and Legends Entry: Brad Staley


Hey, I like the atlantis theme, steam underwater is always fun :beer:

Just a note on your beetle; it looks slighty fragile with the thin bars on the top, maybe you can make those a bit thicker to get a more constant style on your beetle.

Good luck with the contest! :slight_smile:


Hey thanks for the kind words. The water beetle is coming along very nice. Keep up the good work!


I wouldn’t want that beetle anywhere near my madrass, although I really admire and
like the shape and modeling!
Could be a real treat to see it trextured and speculariZed!


Simon:Hey Simon,thanks for dropping in. Point takin with the thin bars on top. I did that intentionally, because it is fragile. It is no longer an attack beetle.LOl Oh yeah I forgot to mention their made with titanium, alloy and kryptonite. In all seriousness your right, it does look a little fragile, I’ll try and change it and see if I like it. Thanks for the insight, keep stopping in.

Joshua: Thank you very much!

Mathias: Full render coming soon.
Thanks again for all your feedback, and support.


O.k. I thought I would post what I have so far, because who knows how long this will take.This is my guard for the Atlantian High Priestess.Obviously no arms, and legs right now, but it’s a work in progress.I don’t know how the heck i’m going to get all of this done, but i’ll give it my best. Brad


amazing detailing! sweet style :slight_smile:


Hey Nick,

Hello Anwar,

Thank you for your comments, and your English is fine.

David: Thank you for the kind words. Keep stopping in Guys.


nice robo :slight_smile:

i like the details.


Hello Almog,

Thanks for the comments. keep stopping in.


Hey great work on the models so far, they are really clean and slick. This one should be good! Bring it on.


Hey Jimmy,

Thanks for the comments. I’m gonna bring the heat brotha, or steam if you will.Ha HA


Great! I just noticed I have the same ear pieces as the illustration for the contest banner on the main page. OOps. Just a little embarrasing. I think were going to see alot of similarities in the contest anyways.Maybe I shouldn’t have brought that up, oh well. What do you all think?


Hey Brad,

Awesome model and details, really great :D. Like a lot the design for the guard, cool!! The detail on the mechanism is superb. Maybe you need to clean a bit the mirrored joint of the model, specialy in the helmet zone, only a comment :slight_smile: Again, great work!! Cheers! :beer:


Hey Fernando,

Thank you! As for the seam down the model, I have it mirrored right now, so as soon as I join the two the seam will be gone. As always good to have you stopping in.
Thanks again,


cool update Brad! I can see now how the mechanism works in there! Should be very cool
to see all the metal shaders and refelctions in action, once you have assigned them to
the model!
Looking forward to see more!
