The Lovereading4Kids comment
Create your own cast by following the advice in this easy-to-follow guide to drawing favourite steampunk characters. Steampunk, with its fantastic technology powered only by steam and clockwork, is such a clever and creative idea. The characters of who inhabit that world are equally inventive and distinctive. They wear clothes made of natural fabrics such as leather and brandish a collection of wonderful gadgets to help them achieve their ends. Create a sky pilot, an aviatrix, a scientist or a winged girl and then learn how to put them into a comic strip story!
Lovereading Comment 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 Characters, and in it's sister book How to Draw and Colour Steampunk Machines.
