ATAT’s are just generally pretty awesome.
ATAT’s are just generally pretty awesome.

Few things are as fun to draw as an ATAT. They’ve got interesting mechanical compartments, long, spindly legs with gears on the joints, and big ol’ elephant feet. After drawing this one, I was so tempted to try drawing a steampunk version of one – smokestacks and brass can only make them even more fun to draw.

If you were one of the folks who tuned into last week’s Ustream, you’re already familiar with these panels! That’s one unexpected advantage of me working from a buffer – when I show you guys what I’m currently working on, it’s a preview from a few weeks ahead! I didn’t have time to do another stream this past weekend, but I’m hoping to get around to one this upcoming weekend. I’ll keep you guys informed here on the blog, and on my Twitter!

    Reminds me of another web comic I recently came across regarding ATAT’s: ATAT’s are still awesome, but the way they were portrayed in the original version film made them appear somewhat clunky. Maybe steampunk add-ons would help them be more fluidic?

    You have got to show us the picture of a steampunk ATAT! Please? Also, that last line is pure win.

    Well, there was this attempt in Lego:

    Almost not completely unlike what I think it would look like.

    But! In the same google search, OMG AWESOME:

    @-@s are awesome. One of the funnest things about playing Star Wars battlefron was going around in one of those, and shotting down A-wings. The other was Ewok burgers.

    AT-ATs are like those huge construction cranes. You never see them being assembled, they’re just there one morning. Let’s face it, if the rebels had been able to attack the AT-AT assembly camp then they’d never have had to flee Hoth. I personally think that such things exist in a parallel universe and only pop into existence here when they are needed.

    I’d like to add to the clamour of requests for the Steampunk At-At. As a VSF/Steampunk wargamer, I’ve been tempted to build a Steampunk At-At for a while, would love to see what you come up with. Might serve as the inspiration to actually make one.

    Gotta ask Alina about the Twilight sequence, does she really find it that stupid/annoying or is she trying to support it?

    Ptthththth, vampires – wolves rule.

    Twilight is indeed a horrible terrible piece of poop. I think this website sums it up:

    OK, so the vampire in this video isn’t an effiminate looking boy.
