CIRCO MAXIMO by darksilvania CIRCO MAXIMO by darksilvania
"Ave Imperator, Morituri te salutant"

Challenge for an Illustration group on facebook, where we had to make an Illustration from 2 different and random words, and this week it was Circus/Steampunk

So, Insted of going for a normal circus, I stretched things a little bit, and went for a Roman Circus, thats why we have a gladiator against an elephant

The elephant is mixed with a Train

Hope you like it

I read this on Wikipedia a few minutes ago: "By the late 3rd century AD, all essential elements for constructing a steam engine were known by Roman engineers: steam power (in Hero's aeolipile), the crank and connecting rod mechanism (in the Hierapolis sawmill), the cylinder and piston (in metal force pumps), non-return valves (in water pumps) and gearing (in water mills and clocks)."

I immediately went looking for Roman steampunk. This is the best one I've found so far.

A few words of advice to the gladiator: Trainaphant hard. Trainaphant to win. Remember your Trainaphanting.

You took two random words and fused them together in this, but in the style in which you made it, it looks completely natural. Great job. :iconbravoplz:

And I couldn't help but think... That elephant would make a BADASS fire/steel type pokemon.

And a very over-powered on at that. Most likely a legendary. :XD:

It doesn't have to be overpowered. I might make a sweet Fire/Steel final starter evolution. There is already Heatran, I don't think we need another Steel/Fire legendary.

I was joking. No normal pokemon would be that detailed or large.

I like the sort of 'sideways' take on the theme given. And the rendering's hardly something to scoff at. I'm always a fan of how you do your mechanical/metal pieces.
