Steampunk Arts V. 1

Another round of out good steampunk art we get from our round around twitter… Mostly they are fanwork made to please the author itself but sometimes they are so great that all of us were impressed and the choose to share…. those are hand-made, a single piece of human inspiration…

We collect this as a way to keep pur imaginations fresh, to keep our dreams flowing into the skies and for our souls. This handcrafts are considered by many as a mediocre way of art, but how many artist are considered like that. This is the culture we will left behind for all of those who are still to be born.

Sometimes they are made just from metal scraps found on someone’s basement, or parts of old machines found lying around the house… No matter how this things get start but how they end as amazing handcrafts and pieces of art, that’s why we like to share with you right here at Gerkcast Blog, and we will add more as days pass by.

 

Madre from brass and steel, from imagination and love, this handcrafts are made only to please those who made it…

If you are an author of one of this and want to be credited just let us know…. Enjoy this eye candy for inspiration and happy 3d modeling…


                  

Steampunk Sculptures… Inspiration Gallery from a age that never happen…

Author G. D. Falksen, wearing a steampunk-styled arm prosthesis (created by Thomas Willeford), exemplifying one take on steampunk fashion.

Acording to the wikipedia, the steampunk is:

Steampunk refers to a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy—also in recent years a fashion and lifestyle movement—that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrialsteam-powered machinery.[1][2] Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunkgenre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era orAmerican “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. It may, therefore, be described as neo-Victorian. Steampunk is perhaps most recognisably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristicinventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Such technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the modern authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld, Stephen Hunt and China Miéville. Other examples of steampunk contain alternative history-style presentations of such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analogue computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine.

Steampunk may also incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. The termsteampunk‘s first known appearance was in 1987, though it now retroactively refers to many works of fiction created even as far back as the 1950s or 1960s.

Steampunk also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century.[3]Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical “steampunk” style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.

 

La Sortie de l’opéra en l’an 2000 English: Print shows a futuristic view of air travel over Paris as people leave the Opera. Many types of aircraft are depicted including buses and limousines, police patrol the skies, and women are seen driving their own aircraft. 1 print : lithograph, hand-colored. Français : Une vue futuriste d’une circulation aérienne à Paris à la sortie de l’opéra. Différents types de véhicules aériens sont représentés comme des bus et des limousines, la police patrouillant le ciel et des femmes conduisant leur propre véhicule. lithographie coloriée à la main

This genre is somewhat new, however the aesthetics were long developed, and thus the artist were really blessed by a century long tradition, also there was serveral pre-steampunkers – they tried to see how the XX century will look like, using their visual references or their era – as early as XIX century:

“Maison tournante aérienne” (aerial rotating house) by Albert Robida for his book Le Vingtième Siècle, a 19th-century conception of life in the 20th century

 

The Steampunk is about a time that never was, an age that only took place in our dreams, but it inspires art anyway and lot of artist create amazing pieces and creations that are amazing. Is about a retro-future world that will never ever happen – or unless the depletion of fossil fuels make us to return to steam one more time – or a romantic age that we all love to live, were inventions are still a way of create art.

Here we create an inspiration gallery to help artist and enthusiast to find some ideas to get started, designers can find here shapes and ideas to create a new project and the rest of us just can be amazed about this beautifull things.

Inspiration from Belgium

Firts,we will show you the work of the artist Belgian Stephane Halleux wich combines his fantasy and a remarkably great feeling for the perfect mix of materials to a staggering collection of adorable Steampunk sculptures. Used leather, some car parts, old metal bits and some other materials almost come to life in his creations. You should have a look at his site here.


              

Also there is a crafted selection of works and sculpture made with the steampunk imaginary in mind, from many artist all around the world.

Arte Steampunk, viejos relojes se tornan en piezas de arte gracias a Susan Beatrice

El Steampunk al menos a nivel visual estimula la imaginación sea uno fan o no del genero, y a pesar de haber comenzado como un subgénero literario, ya alcanza tópicos tan diversos como la escultura y los mods de equipos de computo. En manos de la escultora Susan Beatrice las miniaturas hechas con mecanismos viejos de relojería se transforman en micro-esculturas SteamPunk que realmente son maravillosas, llevando mágicamente a ese mundo victoriano post-industrial que jamas fue pero que con sus mitos nos hace soñar.

Lo que mas hace resaltar su trabajo es la elegancia de las formas, la delicadeza de los acabados y la suavidad de las formas orgánicas que fluyen entre engranes, viejos mecanismos de reloj que vuelven a la vida de la mano de esta artista. Su delicada obra muestra un gran dominio de su arte, y su gran dedicación por el fino detalle.

Podemos hallarla en su facebook donde podremos apreciar mas de las obras que esta artista visual crea con una pasión extrema.
