Steampunk. myths and legends

Here's my entry for the Steampunk competition at

Here's the story behind it:

This image tells the steampunk version of the battle between two creatures from Greek mythology. Pegasus, the flying horse with wings. And Chimera, a monster equipped with the head of a lion, goat and a dragon. According to the legends Chimera was defeated by Pegasus, but I wanted this image to show a more dramatic moment where Pegasus who is usually assumed with flying and grace is now pushed down the image with all it's weight, while Chimera is the superior one placed higher above in the middle of the attack.

as a little side story I wanted to include the "sad/fun" situation on the poor steam punk Edderchoppers "spiders". Machines manufactured with a constant "smile" where their main task consists of pulling carried. Smiley faces were made on them to make them appear as friendly and to make people happy, even though the majority complained that they were rather creepy looking instead. Numerous of Edderchoppers are getting destroyed during the battle. They are all terrified and overwhelm by agony. But from the look on their face, they seem to be doing just fine! =)

Quick sketches

Here's some 10-20 min sketches I did at a daily sketch thread from a norwegian forum called Usually each thread has their it's own headline.

(the blue cat in one of the drawings were not made by me.
It was copied and pasted from a brilliant norwegian artist named Olve Askim )


This week we had a try at dialogue.
