Antiquated Sci-Fi Characters

Renown steampunk artist Björn Hurri has an incredible talent for illustrating clockwork figures in an alternative reality. The graphic artist specializes in video game concept design, working with some major studios on the aesthetic component of their games.

Hurri’s latest collection of images includes the cast from Star Wars done in steampunk. Using a blend of vintage mechanics and futuristic technology, the artist created a series of illustrations that perfectly balances the pop culture allure with an antiquated makeover.

As Han Solo strikes his familiar pose while sporting a bowler hat, smoking a pipe and wearing welding goggles, the illustration could be a picture of the smuggler’s great great grandpa. As with C3PO, Björn Hurri’s version of the A.I. companion looks like the first prototype for the design.
