The mightest foe of the high seas is the cyber-octopus, whose massive metal tentacles can strangle the life out of even the greatest warships.
Holy crap I am a sucker for this digital painting by concept designer Alex Broeckel, who created it earlier this year for steampunk art contest on CGTalk. Broeckel has worked over a decade in the film industry as a digital lighting effects designer on movies like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. You can check out his gallery, which is packed with more amazing stuff. Hey Hollywood and Gamewood, Broeckel is freelance and taking on new clients - hire this guy already!
