I made this box for a friend while we watched Doctor Who recordings the other night. The designs are burned in, then I stained it.

Copper Pipe House
I needed a few minutes break while my saw battery charged so I did a picture in GIMP
this is a small house or lounge built into a tube or giant pipe. I have considered doing this myself before, had no way to get the pipe home though.
The floor is copper, used the idea I found the other day of a penny floor.
And found something a minute ago related to the Little Free Libraries I posted before.
This is a Kinetic Sculpture Little Free Library in Minneapolis. Reminds me of the World Fair building.
Another Victorian Steam TARDIS
Underwater Living Going Steampunk
Unusual Clockwork Cats
Another of the collections from this week. Assuming my computer lets me load it this time.
This is one of 3 collections I made this week of other people’s and companies works. Some of these are absurdly expensive, others are instructables you can make. I present Steampunk pens. this is really mostly a set of clockwork, geared, or similar pens, I did not go into other Steampunk ideas on it yet.
Nature vs. Mechanicals
Well, I had several projects to post today but a couple were fudged when my computer crashed a few minutes ago. but here is the first of those I am posting.
New Installment in my eye series.
An Interior Design Project
One of the things I studies in college was Interior Design. I have been considering a couple interior design projects in Steampunk. Today has been very long so I am going to share a few of the ideas I have looked at this week in that area. Many of these are images I got from Secret Garden on Facebook, others from gaming sites. I did not take these photos and did nothing to them, they are property of other artists, I am sharing them as part of developing a foundation for a Steampunk design. Much of it would obviously need to be custom, but then I wanted to consider multiple price ranges and skill levels. I would want to have readily purchasable options, custom options, build-able options, ways to alter accessible or current items, and ways to use different types of spaces. This is obviously not a one day project, but would be a good series.
Enjoy today’s artistic version of the drawing I did yesterday.
Steampunk Airship, Spelljammer Style
All aboard, today’s airship has arrived. If you are a Spelljammer gamer you may recognize parts and pieces of the airship from various airships in the game. I drew this in pencil.
A fantasy, fairy-tail bedroom gone metallic and a bit of Steampunk Victorian. I know I have gone less with the gears and mechanical aspect of steampunk this week, but this is an exploration project to learn, develop, and create. Not as pleased with the bed as some other things.
A Bit of Steampunk
I left the tag from the original image at the bottom, don’t want to steal an image. Changed all the materials, added stuff, and generally altered the image. I could have worked another hour, but it is past bedtime. I used this because I love the staircase and the way the bookshelf is integrated really appeals to my Steampunk style and what could be done with it.
Another new direction today. the female form is the basis of this piece. I have been contemplating this one for a while, I got the image off Facebook but to be honest I am unsure who she is. I will try to look into it, it was on the tattooed females page. With that foundation, I took a shot of an old Honda Superhawk engine open and clean. My husband is building one right now, so I keep seeing great things in it to work with. I used that as a beginning for the female steampunk cyborg. The background is completly changed from original.
Bugs and Thief
I did another Thief dragonfly image today. I am less pleased with today’s piece largely due to a couple glitches in my understanding of the program and the effect actions would have. But this may be me being to harsh on myself, or just me having an idea I didn’t quite meet but no one else knows anyway. I think having Garrett in the image added a dimension and story that quite appealed to me. I wanted to try it without to see some things in scale and perspective, this was where I ran into program issues, purely not knowing how the program worked effectively enough, now I do, so it was a success in that. The image is from Thief 2, and if you know the game, you will see I altered the scene.
Evolving Dragonfly in a Steampunk World
As I said yesterday, today’s piece is an expansion of that image. The background is from Thief, done by Guyjin, I modified it some and made it more gritty and dark. The evolving dragonfly is a modified form of 1/2 the original bug and 1/2 of yesterday’s piece. I just like the many stories this image can tell.
I found a bug that is almost a dragonfly the other day and want to cast him in metal, not having the equipment right now I have been thinking of some ideas to do with it. This prompted a couple of dragonfly images. Today is the first step, tomorrow is based on this base but with a more detailed background story visible in the image.
Steampunk TARDIS Beginings
Preliminary idea on a Steampunk TARDIS. I am rather tired, it has been a long week already, I hope you like it.
Tomorrowland in Brass and Bronze
Today’s image was going to be a painting, I prepped the canvas and decided I wasn’t ready with the image to paint. I want to do one without drawing it first, new method for me. Instead I went through my pictures I took in Florida and found one of Tomorrowland at Disney World. My niece must have taken it since my head is in the image. I need to find the rest of my pics and get a better shot to redo this, but I like it. I did a mod of Tomorrowland. Of course we all know Tomorrowland is property of Disney Corporation, not trying to infringe.
