Yap Kun Rong's incredible "Lord Of Yamamoto" adds some much-needed color to steampunk. It's just one of our collection of concept art images which might make you see steampunk a whole new way. Banish those boring goggles and waistcoasts!

The above image is Yap's incredible "Legend Of Yamato" image won the CG Society's concept art challenge a couple years ago. You may have seen it before, but it was new to us — and we love how colorfully it reinvents steampunk. Here are some more of our favorites.

It's a steampunk boat that's also a train, from BlueStorm. More of his art here.
