Precambrian Steampunk

Today I’ve been happily designing creatures for an alternate universe, to be experienced by people in shared virtual reality. This world is populated by mysterious mechanical creatures — possibly vehicles or robots — that are eerily reminiscent of the exotic denizens of our own world’s Precambrian explosion.

It just seemed to me that it might be a good idea to mash-up the visual tropes of Steampunk and the Precambrian era, both of which speak to our collective fascination with time and alternate worlds.

Below is a screen capture of an animated creature I made today. I call her Diana.
