Steampunk Oil Rig by ZackF Steampunk Oil Rig by ZackF
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Most of my pictures look a bit unintelligable when shrunk down to thumbnail, but this one preserves the more important features.

Living in a house like that is great... Until a tsunami wipes it out

A Tsunami is actually little danger to a house on open ocean. The destructive force of a tsunami comes from the massive momentum of billions of gallons of water combined with the continental shelf forcing it upward. Along with narrowing the water and thus increasing pressure, the continental shelf is water turns a gigantic oceanic ripple into a deadly wave. A ship in deep water is unlikely to even notice that a tsunami has passed.

I don't care that this comment is a year and a half old. :P

This reminds me of an MC Escher drawing but as an Art Nouveau painting. Nice work!

I love this building and started a 3D model of it. I will be submitting it to DA, linked back to you of course.

Though it is a WIP in progress, I will submit it again when I am done. I am working on texturing at the moment.
Thanks for the concept

For some reason, I really like the small ledge next to the clock face, like a balcony to walk out onto and admire the view. It gives it that touch that yes, it was designed for oil, but the humans on it have to enjoy it too. I must favourite this piece, very fine work

Meh. It still looks cool. Maybe this is the turning point where oil is discovered as a power source. Not to mention something I just realized, lamps were oil powered back then, weren't they?

Thank you! :lol:

I dunno if I'd ever work on an RPG. Maybe! The thing is that there are already lots of RPGs that have this kinda visual style, yanno, but not so much action games. For all I know, I'll just end up being a small-potatoes art monkey for the rest of my career, but my ambition is to be a pioneer. :bucktooth:
