Steampunk Motherboard by DerekProspero Steampunk Motherboard by DerekProspero
A follow-up project to the Geek Motherboard [link], this was definitely a tougher project for me and for several reasons. For one, I was no longer constrained to the relatively flat depth and streamlined geometry of a modern motherboard. I knew this piece had to look much older and the research was extensive. Steampunk has a pretty broad definition and I wanted to avoid just slapping a bunch of gears together. In the Victorian-era, technology was often celebrated with lots of ornamental accents. My main objective was a design that seemed mechanically plausible, full of specific details and mysterious purpose. Project included thousands of layers, and a 3GB final composite Photoshop file at 7200 x 5400 pixels.

How did you make the art itself? Is it CGI, or did you color/draw it in Photoshop? (Because that would be AMAZING if you did...)

It's all 90% scratch in Photoshop, some stock photo assets were added in. And thank you!

Check out the work in progress in the notes.

Some people like to see the serious "details", some people prefer blown-out high contrast so that it destroys the image "pops." I do sometimes take for granted the extremely high quality of my display, so please feel welcome to adjust the work accordingly so it looks good on yours.

Also, it's steamy, not foggy.
