Description

Enter into a world where fashion is Victorian punk, technology hasn't surpassed the steam engine, and inventors' workshops are filled with bizarre gadgets and contraptions that you haven't imagined in your wildest dreams. This is the world of steampunk; a world that has fueled a growing subculture and is making its presence known in mainstream media. From a crafty villain and steampunk laden woman to a steam-powered pet and a flying galleon complete with sails and propellers, talented illustrator Bob Berry takes readers through the process of drawing, painting, and digitally illustrating the marvelous players and elements of the steampunk genre. As aspiring artists learn how to create steam-powered machines and gadget-toting characters, Joey Marsocci and Allison DeBlasio of Dr. Grymm Laboratories explain the history and origin of steampunk, its cultural relevance, and other interesting facts about real-life steampunk machines and their makers.
