Give me the proportions, and I'll fix it for you :) Send me a message.
I believe the screen size is 480×272 for the PSP.  If you want to add WII and DS friendly images, the best viewing sizes appear to be 608x456 and 256x192 pixels, respectively.  [I was doing some research for multi-platform browser based games and I had those in my notes.  They should be good, if not gospel.]

Thanks! I'll fix it tomorrow. A tad to drunk for Photohop now.

Hmm, well, there's my punishment for leaving the computer on before leaving for town.. It's still on when I come back :P

Anywho! I've made versions of the picture for the PSP, WII and DS. They are all to be found in this folder. I'm guessing that the file names doesn't require any explanation. Help yourself :)

Extrordinaire! I first thought it was a genuine stained glass :P I haven't read much of the Cthulu mythos, but I do like it so far.

Thinking: This shouldn't be too hard to make with glass paint...

 WOW!

 Dang, just wow!

 That looks like it'd be absolutely in place in the town where the file "Dagon" takes place. *shudders*
I hope you all enjoyed Air Kraken Day

thank you all, a bit taken aback by the praise but thank you :)

i was tempted to have a go making it with glass paints but i know i will never get round to it. If anyone does have a go i'd love to see it.

heres something a bit less steampunk but i think worth showing



actually its bad quality, i'll see if i can find the original scan

Oh my. I am sorely tempted to dig out my glass paints just to give it a try. If you feel compelled to create more installments along these lines, please post them! I'm no good with dreaming up the designs, but I do have the crafting chops to execute such things.

that'd be the lovely guage axelbrass and his mechanical horse

that'd be my piece called "fly" done in watercolors (watered down acrylics) and solid black paint with inks in pen.
my DA page is http://battytothebone.deviantart.com/
both of them are on there.

This is a picture from an online TCG project I'm currently in.

This is a Steam-powered Clockwork Juggernaut, a masterpiece of the Carthanian Technocrat Union Engineers.
Outnumbered by the Holy Lystarian Empire's fanatical army(Lystaria is a magic-user nation which condemns technological use as a sin), the engineers of Carthania Technocrat Union created large automatons which could challenge the mighty Lystarian army, one such masterpiece is the Clockwork Juggernaut. Larger than ogres, these gigantic machine slices through the enemies with ease.

The picture is a bit too futuristic isn't it ? any idea on how to make it fit better in a steampunk setting ?

Note: the picture is owned by Jotter Gameworks, please do not use without permission :)

Well, I work for Jotter Gameworks as the concept & design lead for the online TCG project.

I'm also in charge of giving the description of how units looks like.
this one is the newest pic the art team has made. It's supposed to be steampunk, but I think it looks a bit too futuristic. Does any of you have some suggestion on how to make this looks more steampunk and not something out of mechwarrior ?

More valves and vents, more second-hand parts, make it look more hand-made.

eg, the two arms could be entirely differently built with different hinging mechanisms as if the builder was experimenting. 

A bit like 'Dog' in HL2 but less rusty and scavenged and more hand-built and experimental.

It's lovely though.

I agree with Prof. Wutherford. It looks too planned and too professional. Make it a bit more "homemade".

A bit of scroll-work on some of the more barren surfaces might look nice too.  Brilliant as-is, though!

Postive suggestions aside, that wonderful techno-terror has found a home on my computer desk top.  Of course, I'm also something of an Iron Kingdoms steamjack fan.

Yeah, I recommend tossing some asymmetry in there. Not that Steampunk=Asymmetrical, but it helps a bit I think.

Just thought I'd poke my head in.... woo, there are some impressive works in here!  I especially like that wicked motorcycle by the DreddPirateBob - drop dead gorgeous detail there!

Here's a couple of my own... I'm not quite over my love affair with anime, so forgive the cartoony-ness ;D

A quick oekaki inspired by The Golden Compass.  This is myself and my daemon, Alchaeon.  You can meet your own daemon by taking the quiz at http://www.goldencompassmovie.com/ - it's a lot of fun!

Not so much of the "punk" here, but it is Edwardian....  :D

They're making a movie about the Golden Compass/Northern Lights? And I love that Edwardian piece, beautiful colours.

Thanks Commander Obadiah  :) 
Oh yes, the movie looks brilliant.  It comes out before Christmas I believe.... the anticipation is killing me!  What would be really fantastic, would be to see the entire trilogy on film.
