Steampunk anybody?

Published by on August 3rd 2011.

If anybody is interested, I'd like to encourage the creation of steampunk styled art this month. I am planning on starting work on a steampunk styled cursor or icon set. (Continued below...)

This is not one of the "experiments" and it is not the main theme of the month, it is simply something to provide all of you artists with some inspiration for this August.

Let's see what kind of steampunk icons and cursors you can think of! :-D

I did not know the word steampunk until today :-o.

I am curious how a steampunk cursors would look like. Some steam perhaps? Gears?

Lol, that is correct. Steampunk is essentially imagining the technology of today and the future as if it were steam powered. The style is similar to Victorian era contraptions. Common elements are oversized devices that contain gears, pistons, pressurized containers, bellows, fans, etc. usually with a brass and wood design.

Google images for "steampunk" will show many interesting steampunk devices. Steampunk fans have modified laptops, flashdrives, wristwatches, and more so that they appear to be steam powered.
