Panzerarmee "Radetzky" by JanBoruta Panzerarmee "Radetzky" by JanBoruta
August, 1915. The Austrians attempt on assaulting and breaking the Serbian lines and trenches in central Bosnia. As they progress, Hungarian soldiers unleash their new weapon, manufactured with the help of Daimler factories. The steam-powered tanks, nicknamed "Szent Istvan" ("Saint Stephen") powerfully armed and impregnable, formed a new corps - the first Panzerarmee "Radetzky", named after the greatest Austrian commander of XIXth century.

2B pencil on A4. A new and quick idea to get back to steampunk again.

Those tanks look awesome! But, I don't think they would be very practical.

I think WWI would've been a tad different with these monsters.

Thank you! I'm glad I succeeded in showing the industrial side here, the machines were specifically designed for it :)

well i am steampunk but im more into the 1910-1920s side of it...where everything isnt steam powered but still has that mechanical whimsy to it. plus another reason i like this piece is it reminds me of a couple of movies "howls moving castle" and "castle in the sky". keep up the awesome work!!!

I really like trench warfare pics and steampunk "creations" are also so inspiring.

I love those tanks! Your steampunk is more than imaginative. It is quite serious and well documented.

Those tanks are just brilliant. This whole drawing is amazing, I think I may have fallen in love with this image.
Those explosions are just fantastic and the steam is brilliant. I love it, good show.

Is this intended to be real, or fake? Because the Russains in WW1 actuallt had tanks that looked almost exactly like that. Almost. They were almost never used.

This is fantastic! I like how you've done the explosions, and all the detail, all the men in the trenches and the heavy shading under those crazy tanks.

Tylko ten... to jest rzecz, o której twórcy steam-punku nigdy nie myślą, a która sprawia, że te wszystkie cudowne maszyny nie mają prawa bytu. Silnik parowy jest ogromny. Do tego wymaga stałego dostępu paliwa oraz wody. Całość nie dość więc, że jest spora, to jeszcze waży około mnóstwo. Nawet umieszczając pojazd na gąsienicach, byłby za ciężki, żeby się poruszać poza ubitą drogą =P

Ale, ja się chyba jak zwykle czepiam :XD:

Poza tym na obrazku jest błąd, przynajmniej jeśli sugerować się opisem. Po co smocze zęby, skoro ten prawie-jak-czołg ma być czymś nowym? :XD:

Te grafiki powstają inspirowane jakimś książkami/komiksami. Są jak zwykle wspaniałe a opisy nadają dodatkowego klimatu.

Tu. "TLI" to krótkie opowiadanie, a nie książka, jak "Wojna światów". Co ciekawe, napisana 13 lat przed pojawieniem się pierwszych czołgów.
