Steampunks in Space is an event I’ve been attending for 5 or 6 years now. It’s always nice to get the sculptures out the loft and put then on display for abit!
Here are a few more pics from the event.
My mech obsession is continuing with a new build. I wanted to do something a little more retro/steampunk for this one. I also found a cool way to do the legs by using some cupboard door hinges. It seems I forgot to post the first part, so here are both 😉
I recently finished my Cthulhu Steampunk Armour and took it to Weekend at the Asylum, Lincoln’s annual steampunk festival.
Here’s a video looking at my costume and the weekend itself. I had a victorian wetplate photograph taken as well (shown above) and I videoed some of the process involved in creating that too.
Here’s the second part of my build log covering the creation of the costume.
I’m preparing for the Lincoln Steampunk Asylum and this year round, unlike the last two years, I wanted to do something that doesn’t involve covering my face! I had intended to make something that was nice and comfortable. What I’m working on is a little more comfortable than a full on mask, but as it’s turning out, only by abit 😉
In this video I use a technique called cold casting to build some armour pieces.
I’ve taken a break from my recent batch of scratch built robots recently and have been working on some pure sculpture projects. In this video I practice sculpting up a skull using monster clay hard.
Here’s the second part of my latest mech build! This time around I’ve gone a little 1950s-esque with the colour scheme.
The face is inspired by some of Simon Stalenhag’s work. He’s a fantastic artist if you’ve not heard of him. Here’s an example of his stuff. I talk a little more about him and other mech artists in this video.
Here’re some more pics of the mech.
I’m still abit obsessed with Mechs and I’m currently working on a new one. It’s largely made out of clear plastic baubles with a few cast resin pieces in there too.
Here’s the second part of my video series in which I finish my mech model, paint it up and add a diorama base. I’ve been watching quite a lot of diorama videos on YouTube recently and I’ve become very struck by the people who do this kind of thing cos there’s some amazing stuff out there. So in this video I add some clear resin to the base to serve as some water and I also add some vegetation and various other bits to create, hopefully, a realistic looking diorama scene.
Following on from my previous mech build, I became a little obsessed with robots (not that I wasn’t already) and launched straight into my next build, this time of a scout type robot. I’m imagining this one is designed for hunting targets in bogs and marshes. In this video I construct the model. I’ll be painting it and sorting out a diorama base in the next part.
I also got hold of some inspiration from these two artists, both of whom are amazing.
