"One moonlit night on the bayou a silhouette
The air was sweet and the fog was violet
The gators were all drinking tea, in a dreamy pantsless glee
I saw a suspendered man, a banjo holstered in his hands.” [x]

These were made for practise and to be a part of my reference archive. I’m still learning, but I think it looks good enough to be shared with you fellow artsy robot enthusiasts. :)

Want me to share some techniques next?

It’s happening again. That sickening noise from the laundry room echoes through the walls. No one dares to speak of what took place down there.

Additional spooky sound effects: [X]

For the SPG haunted house. This is based on a real place. It’s located in the basement of an old house from the 1940’s where I rented a room during 2 years of school. The laundry room is cold and barren, and you never feel quite alone in there.

Steam Powered Warfare by *Sakalah

In the meantime… One year has passed and this old fanart needed some good dusting and updates. Still based on the old warbot designs, but now a little sharper.

Began sketching today. Why am I doing this to myself? I’ve got other time-consuming projects to complete already T-T

A lost soldier is found in the muddy wastelands of the First World War as the cold night gives way to the unveiling dawn.

My second contribution to the Let’s Draw SPG project. Based on the Danish social realist painter H. A. Brendekilde’s “Worn Out" (1889). This painting always invoke such sadness in me. I also referenced this photo from 1917. I never want to depict a muddy landscape ever again.

Today on 2 July (2013), it has been a year since I became a fan of Steam Powered Giraffe. It was this fan art on dA which intrigued me to search for them. What I found was a video of three dapperly dressed automatons by the sea; singing the most heartfelt and hauntingly beautiful song about lost love I’ve ever heard. 

Ever since that day these wonderful people have filled this void in my life I never knew existed. The music and mesmerizing act brings me joy every day, and the beautiful human beings behind the magic inspires me greatly in so many ways. Whenever I feel down and full of self-doubt, they help me pick myself up.    

I also love the Fanmily. True, I’m one of them shy and silent kids who’s often watching from the sidelines as the other kids play, but I love how this fandom has brought so many talented artists, writers and other colourful people together. I’m so happy to be a part of this open and loving community and its creative madness.

Thank you all for existing! <3
