my steampunk portal design "the cake is a fabrication" is now up for voting at we love fine please give it a 5! contest.welovefine.com/vote.ph… the grand prize is a trip to PAX so i worked really hard on this one! cheers!
I love the "Alice in Wonderland" vibe. It definitely pulls the piece together. The steampunk aspect is downplayed a bit, compared to the other steampunk Portal pieces I've seen - what I mean by that is: compared to pieces like this, which focus more on gears, brassy metals, grommets and the like to bring out a more "old-timey high-tech" look, you focus more on dated technologies like the phonograph, telephone, and pocketwatch to provide that same appeal. I like that it doesn't really follow the "mainstream" concept of what steampunk "looks like" (again, with the heavy reliance on gears and bronze toned metals to evoke the image) and goes with your own concept.
Hahahaha! this is great! I love the way you incorporated Chell's long-fall boots together with Victoria's usual attire! tres chic! This is an undeniably cool mash-up! a 5 for certain! This is a prize you're sure to capture! And this needs to be a very large poster i can hang in my games room! (^ 0^)
