You mean that a robotic guy with a plasma sword, heavy breathing, and a control panel on his chest WASN'T already half-steampunk?

The term "steampunk" means modern or sci-fi tech in a form that resembles the construction techniques common to the Victorian Era. Which means that clockwork replaces electronics and cast-iron and brass replace more modern alloys.

Nice work.

I thought that the actual ''pre-quel" should have featured a "Mark 1" version of the Darth Vader we all know and love as opposed to the finished look we see in the actual trilogy. Something like this would've been neat.

I think its been resolved but just to point out in case of any further confusion, Caveatscoti was kind enough to grant me permission to use his superb artwork as a basis for me to create this 3D model from it for a competition on the CGS website.
his original can be found here [link]

pretty cool, but how would a steam punk lightsaber work? you could have put a samuri type helmet on his head, and it still would have worked. Still... pretty cool!:jedi:

im afraid i cant take credit for the design. i based the model on concept art painted by an artist called Alister Lockhart, who was kind enough to give his permission ..

he has a portfolio at CG Society : [link]
