A Different Steampunk Star Wars

Steampunk R2D2 and C3P0 by Mr Marcel E Mercado

Mr Marcel E Mercado sent word that he’d redone his MySpace page in a much more Steampunk fashion – and indeed, it’s easily the nicest looking MySpace page that I have seen (though it still tries to play music).  However, taking a gander through Mr Mercado’s work (he is an artist of no small talent) and I find that he has created his own series of Steampunk Star Wars images such as my favourite droid above!  Oh, and C3P0.  chuckles

Wonderful use of the glowing valves there, and you might want to take a gander at the other ones over at ImagineFX – recruitment posters for jodpur wearing Rebellion soldiers, brass masked Lord Vader, a heavily adorned Emperor and more.  Rather an unusual take, but the droids are easily my favourite.  Lovely work, Mr Mercado – you’ve got Steampunk down to a tee.
