    I don't have the wherewithal to participate in these remake/remodel threads, though i take great pleasure in looking through them and marvelling at the skill and imagination the participants bring to bear on the challenges thrown up by the warped mind of Mr Ellis. This particular one has attracted some especially good entries, i hope you won't find it too patronising if i thank you all for your efforts.
    Makes me wish i could draw, really does.

    @zachreddy - Your take reminds me vaguely of Brian Blessed from the old Flash Gordon movie, just in a Bat-Man costume...he looks like he loves his work. A little too much.

    Great stuff this week all around. Hopefully my take ( which for once I don't actually hate ) will be finished today so I can get it put up here.

    [EDIT: Okay, now I hate mine. It's the lettering - every fucking time. I just get irritated far too much by it - I don't know why. ]

    This thread has "steamrollered" through so many levels of brilliance already and just when you think it can't get any better we get the Batsman - Top hole!!!

    I'd really like to comment on every individual piece but it would take forever to do proper justice to them all, there's just so much quality on show and frankly there are far worthier judges than me.

    In my perfect dreamworld I'd love to see everyone here given an opportunity to create a Steampunk batman short with the end results compiled into an anthology - though I guess the legal minefield that would need to be negotiated to see something like that happen would be paved with the smoking corpses of writers, artists and litigation lawyers. (That said I'd happily throw myself on a mine as long as I could take a few lawyers with me)

    Thanks all for the kind words!

    @Berserker Funny I wasn't consciously thinking of Brian Blessed, but I was listening to the War Rocket Ajax comics podcast while I drew it... Subconscious influence perhaps? And agreed, this thread has been overflowing with talent and imagination! I hope you get yours in before the cutoff, I'm really interested to see your version!

    STEAMPUNK BATMAN IS A GENTLEMAN, AND WEARS PROPER CLOTHES, NOT A COSTUME. STEAMPUNK BATMAN WEARS TOOLS. STEAMPUNK BATMAN'S FAVORITE TOOL IS HIS DIAMOND TIPPED, EXTENDING FIGHTING STICK WITH PNEUMATICS POWERED ELECTROMAGNETIC GRAPPLING HOOK.

    STEAMPUNK BATMAN CAN STAB A TANK TO DEATH WHILE HE FLIES PAST OVERHEAD ON HIS BAT-PACK. YES.

    STEAMPUNK BATMAN

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    My Cintiq tablet has decided not to interface with any graphics program on my computer except paint, despite updating the drivers, so I did not get the chance to try out Manga Studio with this like I was hoping. (Although, I did get the chance to use my homeade tannic acid/oak gall ink, which was fun.) I miss the undo button.

    I was having a hard time meshing the concept...exactly what timeframe is this? Silent movies were not until the early 20th century, right after the very end of the victorian era (Where steampunk is usually set) - so is it that the silent movie is an invention 50 or so years before its time via steam technology, or that a silent movie theater is doing a steampunk movie set in the past?
