    I remember playing a game in the steampunk genre, (can't remember what it was called but I enjoyed it) and this has a bit of that flavor...not overly done. So to that I say good job. Everything looks pretty good and well done so that gets a "good job" as well, especially the blur to suggest height on the one image. The steam looks a bit weak but that could just be me. Also I think there should be some rust and grime...I love rust in a steampunk image. But then, I was always more into cyberpunk so maybe I'm just too influenced by Blade Runner. Oh, and how bout some burn marks and wear and tear on the flooring? These are all just minor things and they might be coming at some later point, if so, disregard everything that I've mentioned except the "good job" stuff
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    they look great! My only minor crit is that the cogs look very brightly lit compared to everything else.

    A bit off-topic, but was it a computer game Ascension? If so, it probably was Arcanum. Great steampunk RPG.

    This map reminds me of that game, which is a good thing!

    Too bad Troika went under (the developer of this game).
