Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-07
Light trails turn to steam in this first-class homage to the theatrical release poster of the 80's hit anime, Akira. ultima by nesmosfactory in its own right is a commendable artwork deserving your keen acknowledgement. ( Featured by puddlefisher )

Looks like an Akira/Steamboy crossover. Nice choice since both films were actually made by the same director :)

Congrats on your DD!  This caught my eye not so much for Akira references, but my love for Steampunk retro transportation!  Wonder if that uses gyros to balance on the rails?  And it doesn't de- rail(no flanges on wheels).  Very cool overall  and looks very fun to ride!

Reminds me of Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger, but with Kaneda and his bike, turned train instead.  Neat idea.  Congrats on getting a DD, this looks ace.

I have to nitpick here: The railroad switch you've drawn there wouldn't work, neither for the monorail nor for ordinary trains. The outer rails have to go on uninterrupted, while the points are both on the inside. Otherwise a train couldn't go down/left from the right, and coming from there would allways derail.
