:star: Download the fullview image to see a lot more details and a clearer image :)


This is a drawing I did for the Steampunk Aquaticks contest, by :iconbeinspyred:. The project/contest rules are simple : create an artwork inspired by some stock image from specific stockists . Here’s the link for more info : [link].

Please read until the end for full credits.




This drawing represent the vision Captain Nemo’s* had during his visit to the Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus.**



* Captain Nemo, also known as Prince Dakkar, is a fictional character featured in Jules Verne's novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and The Mysterious Island (1874). Nemo, one of the most famous antiheroes in fiction, is a mysterious figure. The son of an Indian Raja, he is a scientific genius who roams the depths of the sea in his submarine, the Nautilus, which was built on a deserted island. Nemo tries to project a stern, controlled confidence, but he is driven by a thirst for vengeance and a hatred of imperialism (particularly the British Empire) and wracked by remorse over the deaths of his crew members and even by the deaths of enemy sailors.


**The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a 2009 fantasy film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and Charles McKeown. The film follows a traveling theater troupe whose leader, having made a bet with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations and present them with a choice between self-fulfilling enlightenment or gratifying ignorance.
