Torvald Faust by Hellwolve Torvald Faust by Hellwolve
The third in my series of wallpapers featuring myself as various characters of mine, here's me as my Steampunk character, the persistent, pilfering privateer Torvald Faust.

You can read more about him here, but as that's not my best writing, one can best read my short description:
Torvald Faust is a privateer with an knack for engineering weaponry, be it great or small, and a penchant for encountering the supernatural on his 'acquisition missions', leading to such marvels as the crystallized ectoplasm powered Valkyr Rifle. Gifted with an never-ending devil-may-care attitude, he is a man to be reckoned with.

Enjoy it, as I have creating it! Don't forget to download the full version :)

Als schrijfster van een steampunk boek krijg ik hier wel inspiratie van. Bedankt. :)

De manipulatie, of het kostuum? ;) Aangaande het eerste, ja, dat maak ik 100% zelf :) Ik hou van Photoshop ;)

Wat betreft het kostuum; deels. Sommige dingen vind ik op rommelmarkten e.d., sommige koop ik nieuw, ander spul laat ik maken en sommige dingen maak ik zelf :)

Dat is het mooiste.
Je komt soms iets tegen en later kun je het gebruiken (of deels veranderen).

Zulke foto's kun je ook plaatsen op de site onder Steampunk! Als je nog meer hebt en je weet de folder niet, plaats maar gewoon, ik zet het wel in de juiste.
Ik zie wel, wat je doet!
Groetjes uit Nijmegen!

I'm not sure of either; they're both second-hand :) However, I'm fairly sure the former is of the Swiss army; markings in it say as much :)

Hmm that's too bad because I would be interested in getting them either for myself or a friend. But I'll take a look on ebay or something, thank you.

I'd search for 'ammunition bags', 'munition bags', 'ammunition pouches', 'munition pouches' and other terms like that :) Perhaps it'll take some perseverance, but you should be able to get a hold of them :)

I'm throwing a few ideas around in my head for possibly a new character to costume, but deciding is hard for me since i like all three concepts so much but at the same time I really like Aleksander(my current character) and don't wan't to feel like im just ditching him.

Hi John ook aangenaam kennis te maken met jou =D
Er staat een foto in m'n gallerij, niet echt geweldig maar het is de enige die ik heb XD
Heb van m'n vader voor m'n verjaardag ook een soort bril gekregen, maar niet echt steampunk. Heb wel een idee voor een steampunk foto, maar moet nog kijken of dat iets gaat worden.

the story was good, but its more that you put some thought into your character and acted on it. also anyone that would do this directly/shortly after discovering steampunk should be applauded
