extravaganza 2010 FLIGHT by ichitakaseto extravaganza 2010 FLIGHT by ichitakaseto
my contest entry for extravaganza 2010, the theme is flight, and I chose steampunk since thats something i havent done before, and it was fun doing it too.

It sets in a world of steampunk utopia, where mankind has taken the technology to a level that is so advanced, they are even able to elevate the whole city. So apart from flying vehicles such as hot air balloons and airships, this kind of steam powered flying suite is an essential tool for travelling from places to places. Its design is complex yet elegant. It's equiped with two powerful steam powered turbine engines that sit on the tip of the wings. A pressure meter is equiped on the left arm to allow the pilot to constantly moniter the pressure level and fuel status, while three pressure vavles sit on the other arm giving the pilot delicate control over the thrust on both engines and the rotation of the wings for turning. The wings are locked into place on a shoulder piece that rests on the pilot's shoulder. To minimise the stress on the pilot;s shoulder, the should piece is supported by two hydualic levers that is connected on the other end to a metal ring around the waist, the metal ring is again connected to the suit through 10 mini hydualic levers so that the weight of the whole shoulder piece and the engines can be dispersed to the whole body leaving the pilot with little stress on the shoulders. So it makes the suit comfortable to wear under any situations.

thanks for viewing. =v=

extravaganza 2010 FLIGHT by ~ichitakaseto "is an outstandingly well-done piece, combining both realism and anime-style in a simple concept, which was nicely executed with a breathtaking atmosphere and the choice of colors are carefully picked as well to match the colors of the distant landscape and skies. The character design is also very beautiful and has a certain degree sense of realism and a professional level detail-care. The spinning propeller of her device is also nicely rendered." - Rai1000. I couldn't agree more - make sure you take a look at the rest of this deviant's fantastic gallery! This piece was also suggested by *noirioko and ^VAngelLJ.

Excellent. Its a well thought out idea and captures a certain fantastical charm that you can find in the anime 'Laputa Castle In the Sky'. I love the colours and the smooth texture and the design of the lady's apparel and flying pack. Not to mention the Japanese sauciness entailed! Well done :)
