Our steam powered pal I-Wei just posted up a great overview of drawing “Steampunk art”, it’s mostly about the components of something steam based, so your drawings will be a bit more accurate, he writes – “The purpose of this web page is not to teach you how to draw. I will not be going though technique, perspective, color, line weight, software, or any of that stuff that you can easily surf up. This page is to only to inform artists who want to draw steampunk machines, but doesn’t quite fully understand how steam works. The focus is to add enough elements to your drawings, to make your steampunk machines more believable.”Link.
