Ron Pippin steampunk art takes the form of animals and other organic creatures made out of weapons and other miscellaneous manmade objects. His art is described to be a merge of good and evil. You can clearly see this from his artwork -- after all, for the 'Solar Deer' sculpture above, he recreated an innocent animal with weapons.
