Go steam racer, Go!

After the Trojan Toy in my previous post, I decided to learn how to draw mechanical things and this conveniently led to steampunk, which has always been a fun favourite of mine.

Anyhow, I decided to break with tradition and throw a bit of colour in the mix and it ended up as one of my best colour pictures so far (there aren't that many to choose from!)

So enjoy my first attempt, hopefully of many more...

Funny how this started out as a poetry blog

There was an old city called Troy,
Whose king was a pompous playboy.
The Greeks they invaded,
Then they blockaded
And snuck in with a huge wooden toy.

That's what really happened in Troy. None of this wooden horse nonsense. They were in fact the first people to construct a gigantic mech, albeit one made of wood. But it had an axe twice as tall as a man and that's all that really matters.

Giants walk among us.

Not sure what this all is as I got the idea from a dream I had after binging on sci-fi. I liked the visual aspect of this woman cheering on giant robots walking across a vast jungle landscape and the image kinda stuck in my head so much that I had to put pen to paper.

As usual, picking a rather pointless element from the scene, I'm particularly pleased with the trees, which mark a new milestone in my efforts to represent vegetation with only 2 colours. The only bit I dislike is the beast in the distance, as I drew it longer than it should be and the shading is a bit too obvious.

Maybe one day I'll draw the place they're all heading for, or perhaps where they're coming from...
