Featured Tutorial: 15 Great Resources to Create A “Steam-punk” Look

Looking for a new approach to your designs? Check out this great article that compiles various Photoshop and Illustrator tutorials, that help you achieve an old-world Victorian “Steam-punk” look, published on the Designer Daily Website.

Swiss-based graphic designer Mirko Humbert explains the idea behind “Steam-punk,” stating:

 “Steam-punk” illustrations show us a Victorian retro-future. They are inspired by steam-punk literature, a sub-genre of science-fiction that involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used. Works of steam punk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them. These tutorials and resources will help achieve such illustrations.”
