generation of creative ideas...the blank canvas...

Just got home from a long day of work in computer animation and am now ready to relax for a couple of hours to recharge and then back to working on my artwork. I'm currently working on new work that incorporates vintage design and machinery fused with science fiction in a style called Steam-punk. For those who have never heard of Steam-punk before, it is a multi-disciplined, broad spectrum genre fusing Science Fiction of what was and what could have been. Classic examples are described in the writings of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. In other words, what would have happened if the Victorian designs and cultural fashion never died and steam technology continued into modern day? We'd have brass iphones with ornate inlay, computers with delicate "mechanical" keys on the keyboard made of brass and chrome. At the same time, I'm trying to create a different look that what is currently prominent in the Steam-punk circles. This should be interesting. So far, it's frustrating. Hoping for a mental brainstorm! Here is one of my new designs under construction created in 3DS Max and Vray.
