PURE STEAM - Steam Tank by 47ness PURE STEAM - Steam Tank by 47ness
More vehicle commission work for Pure Steam...! The beta is out, btw! Check the link for additional info. :D

No 3-D modeling for this beast; mostly eyeballed it with mechanical pencil and then a ton of Photoshop hours. ¦3

(one more vehicle to draw; it should be an especially crazy one...!) ;D

Always fascinating those Steampunk designs ^^ The guns positions reminds me lots the casemates and turrets from the battleships of the late 1890´s =D

Hehe, glad you think so~! The tank operates in an alternate 1890s-1910s world...

Aw, so that´s it! ;)
Just a curiosity: I know is maybe push too much the technology, but did you think in possible space travel too in your Steampunk universe?

I'm not sure if space travel would happen in Pure Steam™ (it would depend on my clients' wishes)

As far as space travel in my comic; maybe?? A friend of mine said she had a dream once about Sally and Pete going into space and were met with danger, so now I'm all interested in the idea. :XD:

Ahn okies! ^^

And yeah =D I asked this also because I am taking a look in sites with free books (like Internet Archive and Gutemberg project) and I am finding many scienci fiction books written in the late XIX and early XX centuries about space travel and similar issues, and is quite fascinating, as they show space travel in that times, not as in a far future. In almost all them, they use anti-gravity as the transport device.

Electromagnetism was all the rage then, so perhaps it was about creating a charge that repelled us (or hopefully our capsule!) away... ;P

Actually this was one of the "formulas" proposed for spaceships. Use magnetism to levitate cigar-shaped vessels out the planet.
