Steampunk is one of the greatest fan made themes. It is my favorite theme to build in I think that I finally understand how to do it right.
About this creation
The design must be unique and fantastical. If it looks in any way ordinary you have failed and need to start over. It should have an almost magical look to it. It needs four colors, two shades of grey, reddish brown, and most importantly pearl gold. The colors must be balanced, too much of one color will ruin the moc. The next step is creating both smooth lines and greebling. The greebling and smooth lines must also balance each other out or ese it will be either to simple or to complicated. After that let your imagination carry you and if something doesn't look right take it apart and try again.

Nicely executed. Working with threes is always tough, so a tripod walker shows some skill. The theme analysis is great. I'd love someone to put something like this together for some other hard to interpret styles. I would have love a post-apoc one a week or so back.
A very fine piece of machine you have there, an excellent example of steam technology. the build is elegant, however I do not entirely agree with your steampunk 'formula'. Personally I find that there is several different styles of steampunk like, the more magical ones, with floating rocks and supernatural occurrences. the sci-fi one, with ray-guns and aliens. the done-to-earth-one were every thing seems like it could really work. and much more, so there really isn't any one formula, but then you might have known that and are just giving a form for one style....I'm going ta stop ranting now....Great MOC.
Love this design. The colors are great, (thanks for the tutorial). It is one of the best mechs I've seen in a while. Really like the pilot's seat and how it's off to the side and not right in the middle. Awesome fig too. Great work.
