Get your goggles on and wind your clocks, we’re heading into the anime steam age! Celebrating the release of Last Exile Fam: The Silver Wing, it’s time to make everything STEAMPUNK! Anime is brimming with amazing inventions, devices and powers, but what if technology developed a little differently?
Read on for our winners and honorable mentions!
An awesome transition of Gundam to the steam age – looking pretty much as you’d image a steam locomotive if it stood up and walked around, while maintaining perfect proportion to the on-model style of Gundam. Great details like rivets and cogs are used with subtlety, while the steam cannon and fuel tank looks deadly!

In a steam punk world, Capsule Corp would still be innovating! Here’s Bulma, a whiz with gadgets in any reality. A crisp, cleanly detailed image as always from Corad using perennial favourite, Dragon Ball Z. Not only does Bulma look the part with costume, goggles and cap, but that is one stylish steam-bike.
Corad wins 2nd prize of a $100 Madman store voucher!
As if Evangelion 3.0 wasn’t post-post apocalyptic enough for you, imagine having to patch up Unit 2 – or its pilot, Asuka herself – with metal plates and rivets! Ouch! Looking a little rusty and worse for wear, this is a great take on the Eva design, and Asuka’s costume changes with armour plate and updated steamglass eyepatch really fit the bill
ellabella wins 3rd prize of a $75 Madman store voucher!
Showing sultry style hasn’t gone missing in the steam age, Holo from Spice and Wolf in an alternative Victorian era looks at home in the moonlihgt. Beautifully coloured by AJchan, the graded tones and lighting make it all the more atmospheric.
