Hey guys, I’m proud to show you my last project wich took me about 20 hours. I made the concept sketch when I was 14 but I totaly forgot it. I found it hidden behind an old math lesson last week, (I’ve always hated math class :() so I decided to model it. Critics are welcome.

Those wings are awesome. =) It’s a really cool model overall, but I think organic tentacles seem a little out of place in a steampunk render. Just a thought.

I always think that octopus are animals wich looks great for steampunk mechanichals due to the tentacles. Then, it’s especially this unusual effect that I wanted.

I forgot to share the original sketch made few years ago:

As I’m not so picky how I like my Steampunk, tentacles are a nice touch. Brings some Lovecraftian feel to it.
But otherwise I’d like some “patina” and wear for the metal parts. Now everything seems a bit too shiny. In my mind Steampunk is all about old brass, gears and victorian parts.

The sketch is really cool!
