Unit 2- Space (Round 2)

Righty, here we are again!

I drew from the smooth blue box Folder 11- H.G. Wells' The Time Machine

Oooh the wondrousness :)

My immediate thoughts are to steampunk the life out of it, but it has kinda been done in every film adaptation.

The shiny brass and quasi-scientific appearance of the 2002 remake

The arguably more stylish 1960 take

I am still carrying a bit of inspiration from The Mysterious Exploration of Jasper Morello and its shadow/silhouette themes. I'll draw some stuff up in just a moment :)

[Irrelevant observations below]

On a side note I realised that in the trailer for the 2002 remake of The Time Machine it ends with this logo

The clock is saddle shaped, a nod toward Stephen Hawking?

  1. hey oliver. you've got one hell of an awesome story to work with here. tons of potential, with a massive variety of possible settings.
    even though the steampunk approach has been taken before, that doesn't mean you can't put your own unique spin on it. for example, the interiors of the latest iteration of the TARDIS are heavily steampunk, somewhat junkyard inspired, yet they're both utterly unique. (get used to a lot of doctor who references, by the way, i'm what you might call somewhat obsessed!)
