THE COLLAB

Ladies and gentlemen!

You do remember our Halloween collab, don’t you?
Since it went rather well, why won’t we try another one? This time it’s Christmas, and let’s do it in dieselpunk. The background and stuff will be more simple then the last one, and the rules are pretty much the same…

The rules of this collab are still simple.


:bulletblue: You do not have to be a member of this group to participate.
:bulletblue: First of all, choose one of your original characters. If you don’t have any, but still willing to participate, just make one, or imagine for one-shot. All your character has to do, is to have a name and an appearance.
:bulletblue: Second of all, dress him, her or it into the dieselpunk costume. It is great if your character is originally a dieselpunk one, a robot or other being. If he, she or it isn’t – it’s time to dress up! Remember, though the group accepts all of the steampunk sub-genres (dieselpunk, fantasypunk, etc.), this particular is about diesel verse.

:bulletblue: Third, give him, her or it any Christmas symbol you like. A small tree, a present in a box, a garland, a paper angel, wearing white Santa beard or even anything from your local Christmas symbols.
:bulletblue: Make him, her or it pose for you.
:bulletblue: Draw!

In the end, all of our entries would be put onto one big drawing, creating a group picture that is going to be featured on out front page.




Additional guidance:


:bulletblue: The entry can be any form of visual media.
:bulletblue: It has to be at least 900px high or wide.
:bulletblue: I has to have transparent background.
:bulletblue: The character must be full-bodied.
:bulletblue: If you’re making shading, please, try to make it as if the light was coming from the viewer (so if the char is facing you, the light is in front of him/her/it).
:bulletblue: Send a note to Pallore-M with your artwork and the name of your character (for credits). Of course, you can download it on deviantART, Tumblr, Stash, Facebook, etc., just also send it via note to Pallore-M.
:bulletblue: Send your entries until December, 23.

For digital drawings and paintings:

:bulletblue: Making transparent background with digital works is simple. If you don’t know how, check out this tutorial for Photoshop, this tutorial for Paint Tool SAI, this tutorial for GIMP.
:bulletblue: Keep it in *png.

For photomanipulations:

:bulletblue: It should have a transparent background, so you won’t have to do a background. However, try your best to crop the photos you’re manipulating.
:bulletblue: Keep it in *png.

For traditional drawings and paintings:

:bulletblue: If you don’t know how to make a transparent background to your traditional work, check out this tutorial.
:bulletblue: Keep it in *png.

For photos:

:bulletblue: If you don’t know how to make a transparent background to your photos, check out this tutorial.

Tick-Tock, Clock!Tick-tock now, hurry up and go!
The gears of this clocksmith don’t grind themselves you know.
Is your beat good? How are your hands?
Are in proper shape? I don’t like relying on the hourglass sand.
You’re in good shape, very nice.
I’ll set you to ring out in the afternoon, have you call thrice.
Ah, how beautiful you look!
So smooth and golden, you look like just the one in the book.
I could hold you all day and admire your feats.
I could place you by my head and listen to your ticking heart beats.
Such magnificent work I have made of you.
It’s good that I am a patient one, and there’s still much more to do.
I must zoom in on you to check for anything that could harm you.
Not to mention the engraving I need to give too.
Tick-tock, you say.
You talk in rhythm, my dear, poetry I say!
There, that should do for now.
Let’s test you out, no failures I will allow.
Hmm, you seem to be in perfect shape. Yes, you are fine.
Oh, your brother ticks, saying t
Mechanical love
The Engineer curses.
Cups are knocked over.
Screws and gears scatter wildly.
Wine spills, drips on the floorboards.
A precious glass vial is just barely caught.
His assistant is cowering under the table, hiding.
Hurtling hunk of metal comes straight for him, he squeaks.
Assistant tries to dodge, forgets where he is and hits his head.
The Engineer gets a heavy wrench, hefts it, swings it threateningly.
He is not fast enough, every swing just hits air, making him dance around.
It is a silly dance, all flailing arms and stumbling steps, twirling in dizzy circles.
The assisistant comes out to help, gets nearly hit, is drawn into the dance himself.
"Stay behind me." the Engineer orders, pulling him to safety, out of the flying objects way.
Mechanical hearts all aflutter bumble around the room, bumping into furniture, emptying the shelves.
"Love is in the air~" the radio sings.

Chapter One: Pocket and Dandy
October 1, 1888
“You ever fall in love with the end of the world, Mister Alan?”
“That more of your poetry, Pocket?”
“Not this time, I'm afraid.”
“Because it's getting a little late for poetry.”
“Then don't worry.”
“I won't.”
“Good.”
“All right. I'll bite.”
“It's a long story.”
“You finish your drink?”
“Wait...yeah. Done.”
“Then go ahead and talk. Your tab's due.”
“Normal price?”
“Normal price. A story for a round. But tell it good, Pocket. Lots of flash and pop and romance. Give me my beer's worth.”
“The beer was a little watery
The Lone Wanderer 1
    Chapter 1: The Iron Baron
    The morning sky of deep reds and oranges cast long shadows along the fields that extended into the horizon. Unus Solum's ring shined purple, arcing across the sky, as far as the eye could see. I walked slowly across the porch of my family home, selecting each step with care, aiming to make as little noise as possible. I picked up my bike, which was leaning against the far end of the deck, and retraced my path back to the steps which led down to the walkway. I placed the bike on the ground, fixed my backpacks straps, stepped on the bike, and kicked off. My heart raced, the handlebars became loose under my sweaty hands. I wobbled along the dirt walkway onto the equally uncomfortable road.
I was actually doing it. I fought looking back at my childhood home, out of fear that I would lose my courage if I saw it. I blocked out the thoughts of home, both good and bad, and focused on moving forward. I gained speed, exploding down the road. A smile made its way

I've seen a lot of great steam punk images  but I haven't seen a Steam punk tarot deck. I can picture gears instead of coins and rentches instead of rods.swords are about the same. how do you think cups might be? I hope that someone can have fun with this Idea.
