    IDW #114: Mobile Fort

    Topic: Mobile Fort

    Background: I don't think this topic needs any more text than the title really

    One extra thing though, for this topic you'll have to stick with one of the following three styles/time periods:

    -Medieval
    -Steam Punk
    -Diesel Punk

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a Mobile Fort!
    2. Choose one of the following styles to design for: Medieval, Steampunk or Dieselpunk.
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday, October 24

    Mayhemunited: Check out this: Wiki: Dieselpunk or do a little google search. It's less well known as Steampunk but there's a few things to find on the subject.

    Hi every1

    interesting weekly challenges you got going here, was wondering (being an old fart haha) do I take it that SteamPunk is pretty much the future seen from a Victorian Era point of view enhanced with machinery available then and its timely mechanic evolution?

    Thx, T.

    Hi guys, I'm new in here, and never posted in these activities! I think I'll be entering this one! Very interesting theme, I think I'll go with the steampunk thing!

    And yeah Jamtob2, I believe that is the main perspective around steampunk! Although I believe we can take it to another "environments" rather than just Victorian Era!

    Thanks yoitisi for the link, I'll do the research from that. I figured I would try and take a stab at the theme in the area I knew the least of to keep it interesting and fun.

    Well thanks for this helpful insight, had researched a little but just rushed through the information (its a 1 week activity only anyway) but with all fancy 'dresscodes' and scene-groups out there you begin to lose track (and interest) from certain age. So the enviroment wasnt too much of a concern anyways, just wondered in what style to put machinery and weaponry.
    Okay then its research Monday as soon as I find a moment to do so, advanced technology based on Victorian and evolved from the Steamhorse (chuckles).

    See you later guys and sharpy pen everybody

    Mhhhh lunchtime

    Mobile Fort Wip

    Nice sketch there Nutter, seems to be also an aircraft carrier eh!

    I'm more to a kind of a fort that moves on huge rails along the borders of a country that is almost constantly at war, so this thing could provide support to several "weak" strategical spots! Dunno if can finish it, I'll start polishing it a bit soon! Be well!

    Longest time lurker _ever_, but I might try and have a stab at the IDW next week, since I've finally got some spare time between uni lectures. Go easy on me
