Entry for Destructoid Contest

Hello all, I thought I would post up a few rendered images I made up for a contest they were having over at www.destructoid.com for a sweet gaming pc. I didn't win, but I had a good time creating them, and since they are just buried in the comments at their site, I thought I would Highlight them here.
If you aren't familar with the website it is all about the lastest in Videogames and interactive media, it really is a fun site if that stuff is your jam, as the editors seem like a bunch of down to earth folks, who are witty with out being snobby (to snobby :) ).
The theme of the contest was to make some steampunk style Work. While I'm not into the whole steampunk scene I thought I would give it a go and crank out a steampunk version of their Mascot, Mr. Destructoid. It came out about how I expected it, although in the end, I would have loved to have had time to make a small animation and post that as well. Oh well, that's what happens when you don't budget enough time to make AND render something. That damn rendering... why's it always got to get in the way? Why do people always insist on seeing something finished? When am I going to show the pics?

Inspired by the game Metal Gear Solid.
A nod to futurama...

So there you have it folks, maybe if I ever get off my lazy butt I will finsh up that animation and render it out for all to enjoy. Maybe...
