Character Design Contest ♯80- Steampunk

This week I’m going to go out on a limb and try something that could completely bomb. This week I want you to create something in a steampunk style. It can be a character, an object, a vehicle or a machine, but it must be steampunk. If you don’t know what that is, google (and google images) is your friend.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

  1. OK, Let’s just give Torog the win and be done with it. LOL :D
    That is SO awesome! Me and my wife were sufficiently WOWed!.

    Congrats. If you don’t make everyone else just give up and not even enter … I’d be surprised ::D

  2. Thanks, Cliff, glad I’m not the only one who feels that way! ;)
    Torog, that is bloody AWESOME… Can I get one? :D
    Seriously, while that’s a very high bar Torog has set, I’d like to see some challengers try to take him down…

  4. Is a Dr. Jekyll/ Mr. Hyde Steampunk character something that would fall into our realm of possible characters we could make or is he one of the copyrighted characters?

  5. @Tool- Jekyll and Hyde is in the public domain according to the pdsh wikia (which is what we’ve been using as the basis for all the public domain challenges) so I would say yes, go for it.

  6. This is my very first shot at a steampunk. I’ve never drawn anything like this and I really didn’t know what I was doing. But I wanted to give it a try. So, here it is.

    PS: All you real steampunk fans out there, please don’t hate me :-)

  7. “The inventor’s guild’s exclusive nightclub has three requirements before it will consider you for membership.”
    “Those being?”
    “First, you must invent a means, without any climbing, to board the nightclub.”
    “BOARD?!”
    “Second, you must prove that it requires no more than one assistant to operate.”
    “Begging your pardon sir–did you say–”
    “Third, you must bring an ineligible guest with you on your first visit and safely depart with them.”
    “Safely. Errrr-yes, quite. . . ”
    “Any other questions? The Top Hat Brass should be arriving here soon.”

    I had to try my hand at a Steampunk Satyr. I picture him in a zepplin capable of space travel.

    how can I add my creation?

  10. @Shashwat Mishra- What you do is you upload your picture to a image hosting site (the Forums, photo bucket and deviantart are good places). Then you open the image in a new tab and post the link to that image in the leave a reply box and post the comment.

  11. Copper, goggles, and electricity, so I guess this is steampunk….
    Here’s Power Suit, a.k.a. William Ernst (based on two characters from Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein): http://i1331.photobucket.com/albums/w597/SeanWilkinson84/Steampunk/Timedrop23-PowerSuit_zps1f10f0f8.png

    Hiya! Been a long while since I’ve entered any contests. Hopefully this will qualify. Since it’s been awhile, I forgot how to post without going to my album. I’m sure there was a post on how to post…but for some reason, couldn’t find it.
