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.

wow, this is amazing, I really apprciate how gruling (rewarding grule nonetheless) this must have been. So much detail, I read a comment where you said you did the majority of this from scratch. I was wondering which bits were photo? and how did you do the green liquid vats I love those.

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!
