Tom Banwell does have some damn fine stuff, but I don't think he has anything on you.
OMG! Bob Basset is the guy that made that Cthulhu mask that I love so damn much! But again, in the Steampunk genre, he's good, but I still think you're the best.
Lol, on my search for Griffin Leather, I found two groups. The first one I found was a bondage website, lol. Then I found the one with Steampunk.
Though I think it's great that you're humble enough to see all of those groups/people as equals. Arrogance can really diminish one, regardless of how awesome their skills are (and you're a fucking God I tell you!)
I don't know how I missed this one! It has a feel of anime meets steampunk. It reminds me a little of a alien robot from an old Godzilla movie, but a hundred times more interesting and detailed. I love the different tones of brown mixed with brass or copper. The thorny head fin and pointy ear plates are too awesome. Great idea for an eye shape. It's so different and unique and vintage looking. Someone should have used this in the 1920's movie, 'Metropolis'.
