Steam Punk Alice in Wonderland by rebelakemi Steam Punk Alice in Wonderland by rebelakemi
I painted this for the CG Society's Steam Punk Myth/Legends Challenge. Although I got the painting done in time, I didn't read the instructions properly and never submitted a large size format jpeg. I think it doesn't matter, because the competition was tough and I already had my favorites picked out among the other entries to win. Nevertheless, I like what I did, and hope to paint more steam punk fairy tales. I already have some ideas in mind. For this piece, I went through the whole gamut of subject matter before I picked Alice in Wonderland. I considered Lady of Shallot, La Dames sans Merci, King Arthur, and Joan of Arc. Eventually, I thought painting Alice would be more fun, with a giant mechanized caterpillar and some characters and critters from the story. I even stuck my dogs in it (again). Ripley as a puppy and my aussie rescue, Freckles. If you look carefully, Alice is reading Tesla's Wireless Transmission of Electricity.

what is steam punk
DilEmmaArt Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
its a style that is based on the Victorian steam age, things like laced boots, corsets, clockwork and that type of stuff :) what i told you is probably not all of the steam punk, but it is a really awesome thing that i and my mom are obsessed about XD

Nice steampunk painting!! I notice the reflection of the Mad Hatter and the white rabbit in the caterpillar's polished metal face. A robotic steampunk caterpillar- what will you think of next?

Have you studied Nikola Tesla much? He is one of my favorite inventors. Many of his crazier notions were simply ahead of their time- wireless transmission of power, aircraft that fly on power beams, and particle beam weapons have all been studied seriously in the 20th and early 21st centuries. Witness the lightcraft and Strategic Defense Initiative, for instance. His more prosaic inventions include our entire AC electrical system that the electrical grid is still based upon.
