May the Fourth is celebrated as Star Wars day (May the Fourth be with you) and so I want to entertain you, delightful readers, with a selection of what I consider the best steampunk Star Wars imagery on the aethernet.
This first article highlights some of the wonderful artwork that is out for perusal.
Bjorn Hurri is a contemporary artist working on many video games here in the UK. His website has an entire area dedicated to a steampunk Star Wars section and the images are phenomenal. You can view his entire collection here: Bjorn Hurri
Eric Poulton has created a series of steampunk artworks for well known Star Wars characters including Princess Leia, Vader and Admiral Ackbar. The page that I found these images on even has an interesting back story to each character slightly modified from the original. You can read the stories and view the entire collection of images here: Where Is My Eyeball
Greg Peltz is a CG Modeller from San Francisco, California. His blog hasn’t been updated for some time, but he’s been commissioned for some splendid Star Wars steampunk artwork. The great thing about these images is that they aren’t in an action setting. They’re traditionally placed in Victorian portrait poses, such as Vader in a military pose. The best result has to be the grumpy Chewbacca image complete with a monocle. You can read his blog here: Greg Peltz blog
These artworks are ones I couldn’t find any copyright links for. I’m happy to add it at any time should you be the owner or know how I can get in touch with them. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment in the comments section.
