Dragon by AxelMedellin Dragon by AxelMedellin
I do love steampunk... I know it's not fashionable and it's proved beyond doubt to be box office poison (althought I insist the machines in Wild wild west were a pleasure to look at), but I can't help it, I love it. And I suppose something like this is quite logical in the early electric age...

Steampunk? Not fashionable? You haven't searched the web lately, have you? Oh, We're growing. Go here,it's a steampunk blog full of links and resources: [link] Great dragon,by the way.

P.S: Wild Wild West was not steampunk. Watch the french film city of lost children, although it's not fully steampunk, it has many steampunk elements.It's a great movie anyway.

I love dragons and I'm a recent convert to Steampunk (I converted right after someone told me what it was!)
The pitted, slightely damaged surface to the metal is great.

Beautiful colours and lighting. I like your imaginations, and the way you handle details. This also must be one of the most creative dragon's I've seen. I like how you take common themes and give them a scifi twist :D - very cool.

I think I'd advise you again, however, that you smooth out the background a bit. (unless it's a style preference choice, and that's what you were aiming for :) )

Wow, this is a very unique dragon. I love the textures, as usual. You can almost feel the metal its made of. The smog in the background is also a nice touch. Very nice piece. :)

wow that's a creepy dragon! But it's so shiny!!! lol I like it! And it breaths fire (I'm guessing that's what the light stuff protruding from its mouth is) so that's always a plus!

Many thanks, man! Yep, that's fire, but produced by some weird chemical, so it's bluish and meaner...

I don't have a clue what steam punk is, but if it inspired this, then it can't be that bad. The concept is as futuristic/interesting as all your other pieces, but I can actually see this being called a dragon as its body is a fuel tank to fuel its blue fire/electricity/whatever. (The little tubes running up the neck reinforce this of course.)

Steampunk is like, high-tech of the victorian age, or earlier, using only steam and cogs and stuff like that.

Yep, I think I'll even be able to get some free days ;)... I've also been working a lot, not much for xmas shopping (though I should get something nice for the dame, there's Christmas, and then our first anniversary on dec 27)... I want a new computer and wacom tablet for Christmas, but I guess I'll buy them myself :P... I'm a little tired, but OK so far... do you have your sweetie's gift already?

i sure do :) 14k yellow and white gold necklace with an eagle pendant on it (cause hes polish *innocent grin*) and diamond cut, and an F1 remote control car. lucky bastard :P dec 20th is our 2.5 year *innocent grin* lol. otherwise i totally wish our anniversary was around christmas!! more gifts ;) hehe. jk :) but congrats on the anniversary :) :hug: as for me, i want a camera. except now im not so sure if thats what im getting.. every night i always shake the box to find out, and now its starting to sound less and less like a camera. mostly cause i peeked and saw it was a black box so i went to blacks photography and asked them to see theyre box :P its not black. infact, its a lot smaller too :P lmao. its either a camera or shoes -_-' i dont want shoes. i have enough shoes. i need a camera =)

I like how he's sort of a mechanical turtle/dragon. And steam punk may be box office poison, but it's art gold.
