Steampunk Photo Reference.

This felt a bit like being in a Piranesi drawing.

The old iron still supports tons of rail traffic every day.
Here are some pictures that I took of an ironwork rail trestle in my hometown of Indianapolis Indiana. I love old ironwork with its graceful yet powerful use of iron and rivets.

I hope this gives some suitable steampunk inspiration to your terrain or art projects.

Warbots Advertisement in Dragon Magazine

I was doing my occasional Googling for John Dennett's Warbots information and came across this ad on Philip Reed's blog Battlegrip. The ad was a half page in Dragon Magazine of April 1985 and I'm assuming that the artwork is John's.
Featuring a Battle Trooper Mk IV.
It's interesting to me that it was being promoted as an RPG and not a wargame. I'd love to find a copy of it if anyone knows its whereabouts or even who was writing it.

And of course I had to throw some colors on it.

New MST3K Patch

With the relaunch of Mystery Science Theater 3000 just around the corner, I've been really curious about the new costumes and sets. Felicia Day recently posted an image of her and Patton Oswalt in their costumes as Kinga Forrester and TV's Son of TV's Frank. So I felt compelled to try to recreate the patch design on their uniforms.

It seems to be based somewhat on my beloved Ro-Man "Robot Monster" and incorporates four colored hexes which seem to recall some sort of existing visual system that I'm unaware of. If anyone knows what they are supposed to mean please let me know in the comments.

I'm a massive fan of MST3K and Patton Oswalt so I'm chuffed as punch to see the new episodes. Push the button TV's Son of TV's Frank!
