SteamPunk Octopus by raybender SteamPunk Octopus by raybender
this is my entry for the Steampunk Challenge over at cgtalk which ends today..

the image is about a giant machine octopus which is attacking freighters and civil cruisers.
Nobody really knows who is behind the huge machine which is attacking the ships for several months now.
because the government wasn?t able to react fast enough, the shipowners have hired some brave men and modified some old fishing cutters and equiped them with modern weapons to secure their ships. the unknown attacker seems not very impressed though...


its done with photoshop, 10K Wide (yeah i know its big, but this way it was easier to paint the details for me)


THANX :)

German freelance concept artist Alex Broeckel joined deviantART only earlier this week as ~raybender and he's already making impressions! I have a thing for cephalopods, so I picked SteamPunk Octopus to introduce this artist to you. Do not miss out on the rest of Alex's gallery!

Really impressive. I see why you needed to create it at 10K wide.

Straight-up badass! Is it just me or does the guy manning the turret look a little bit like David Tennant?
