Steampunk worlds where old and new technologies are fused to create fabulous new opportunities have been delighting readers in titles such as Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engines as well as in classics by the likes of H.G. Wells. This guide shows young readers how to create fabulous machines taking inspiration for some of the greatest inventions of the industrial revolution. A flying bug bike and a dirigible balloon are just two of the inventions that young readers can learn how to draw.
This is the ultimate guide to drawing Steampunk, a popular artform that enourages children to explore their own creativity and imaginative ideas. Steampunk is an artistic sub-genre that mixes Victoriana with futurism - blending the industrial, steam-powered machines of the 19th century with sci-fi technology, sometimes incorporating fantasy and horror. It takes the fantastic, futuristic ideas from writers such as Jules Verne and HG Wells and adds in a modern twist - and you can create your own Steampunk Universe using the step by step instructions, tricks and techniques found in this title, Steampunk Machines, and in it's sister book How to Draw and Colour Steampunk Characters.
Steampunk Machines by Mark Bergin
Start your vision of Victorian futurism with the sepia-tinted world of elegant machines and fantasy gadgetry. Use this book as your secret weapon and to learn how to draw, colour and create your very own Steampunk machines. With step-by-step guides and handy tips, you'll learn how to create the unimaginable using a variety of drawing and colouring methods and tools.
From gigantic Dirigible Balloons to aqualine submarines, this book will provide you with the knowledge and enthusiasm to launch your own Steampunk universe.
