Preliminary idea on a Steampunk TARDIS. I am rather tired, it has been a long week already, I hope you like it.
I made a more complex quote today. I used the translator program from Sherman, but did it in sections and compiled them into a unit. I would like to hand draw it when I have more time and make my own design. This is a Tesla quote. Given a bit more time I would have changed the base materials for the foundations.
This is a Gallifreyan quote I drew some time ago. The original translation is ” Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.” I may do a few more of these with other quotes to see what aspects of Steampunk I can incorporate that help it or harm it or accentuate it. The language format is based on the Gallifreyan writing guide from http://www.shermansplanet.com/gallifreyan
Today’s pieces are all developing ideas. They are complete pieces in themselves but based on drawings by others. Probably the storage shelves are the least recognizable from original. However, I chose these because they each inspired drawing or images in my mind I want to develop more before working on. The shelves use the Chinese influence that was growing in Victorian times because of the newly acquired Hong Kong. I also want to do some using the other influences that were entering the design and furniture heavily at the time and nearby. I quite enjoyed studying those influences in design classes. These influences appeal for several reasons: one, the styles tend to be dramatic and interesting, and they go well with steampunk. Two, the travel and incorporation of things from other cultures and places really fits my approach to life and Steampunk. Three, the influence of a newly emerging global society and the impact on life, science, design, economy, and more fascinates me and is a very helpful study when trying to understand people, culture, economy, and more. Four, they are interesting cultures and designs in and of themselves, and the aspects from their history that have similarities to Steampunk are work finding. without further ado…
