Steampunk is cool! Most of the time when I stumble-upon a steampunk related piece I end up thinking it’s pretty great, but in this case it’s absolutely amazing! Good video game art is always fun to find but when it’s done in steampunk style it’s funky, edgy and fabulous. In short, better.
When it comes to unique art the challenge is to create something different, seeing something simple but also innovative is probably the answer to the challenge. There’s no doubt that Katy Irons from Ulylla Designs is doing it right! She managed to combine two great things in her drawings, video games and steampunk.
Her drawings are all 100% hand made. She starts by a roughly draft with pencils, then she develops and creates the details and goes over with a fine liner and colouring pencils adding all of the character’s details making her art work more professional and real life looking. Then the real magic begins, using only biros… Yes..no fancy markers or special paints, she gives it the special metallic look, steampunk style and 100% awesome. In her great collection you can find lots of beautiful video games themed creations such as Mario, Pikachu, Lara Croft, Halo, Sonic, Crash Bandicoot and much more. You can check out all of her great work on her instagram and Facebook accounts.
This Pikachu drawing is the first in her great Pokémon series, and from what we heard Squirtle is next!
Sorta looks like Pinocchio in this one after telling a lie or two.
Steampunk Tribal Tomb Raider: Lara Croft
Lara Croft has never looked so robotic, but it doesn’t make her any less awesome.

Steampunk Tribal: Crash Bandicoot
There’s something sinister about robots smiling with a full set of teeth. While Crash isn’t evil, he sure looks that way in this one.
