Greetings, hairy babies! Today I've got something really cool to share, of the usual fan-made variety. One of my favorite things in art is when artists give familiar subjects original twists, whether that's re-imagining them in a new and different setting, or re-designing them from the ground up. So have something new for the [Big Hero 6](movie:425271) cast - or should I say, something old... It's BH6, steampunk style!
If you want to Big Hero 6 in action first, check out the trailer here:
...Now check them out steampunk style!
Now, today's installment of fan-made awesome comes to us from an artist known as Onionholic, AKA Garlicableningen on micro-blogging site tumblr. Here's the post with all the art on their official blog, and they had this to say about designing and drawing these awesome revamps:
Hamada Brothers and Baymax steampunk version.
Had fun designing these, they look good on those!
Now, I always try to find as many sources for the art I share as possible, including shop sites or portfolios if they have them. I do this because fan artists are talented and dedicated (and often underappreciated) people who deserve as much love as they can get. But that blog was the only place I could find these awesome pieces on the entire internet. They're not being sold as prints like a lot of other art I've featured, and while that's pretty sad, at least we can enjoy them on our computer screens.
So thank you, wonderful artist Garlicableningen for these outstanding redesigns! They might be a little sketchy (they are sketches after all), but I think that's part of their charm. (Plus I always have a soft spot for digital art that mimics the look and feel of traditional drawings.) If the artist ever makes them available as prints, it's definitely something I'd be interested in obtaining for my nerd-cave wall.
Thanks for reading everyone! And as always, if you can, please show the artist some love. Now enjoy the rest of the art!
