Steampunk Junk by rillani Steampunk Junk by rillani
I once asked myself: what if a fictional 19th century China had similar technical advances as Jules Verne's England, with equivalents of the Time Machine and the Nautilus?

Here's what I came up with, the imperial steam-powered junk (a type a Chinese sailing ship that's not normally steam-powered).

(This picture was originally done in March 2008, but I found it again and touched it up a little.)

It is so great to see steampunk that is not Victoriana.

Really excellent, I can tell you put in a lot of time getting the textures of the water and clouds right. the water splashing against the ship is very well done too

Really cool idea. I especially love the jade smokestacks and the overall color scheme.
