Victoria Valentine or Grim Vickie?

Appearances can be deceiving and this character, Victoria Valentine, is far more complex than her Victorian sensibilities suggest. Is she Victoria Valentine, the most innocent and horribly wronged of women, or Grim Vickie, a woman capable of doing horribly wrong things to the innocent? You be the judge when you read, "Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus". Another fantastic character imagined by P.C. Martin and beautiful portrait rendered by Daniel Cortes.


Sherlock's Metal Gauntlets

Metal Gauntlets by Daniel Cortes

A couple of months back we showed an illustration of a battle Sherlock Holmes crew (Sherlock, Watson, and Mycroft) and Captain Nemo's Rajput warriors. In that scene Sherlock deploys another weapon of his own design, his metal gauntlets. The image above shows the technical drawings for those gauntlets which will be animated to show how they deploy from within the sleeve of his coat when needed.

"Holmes cast his revolvers aside; in the torchlight I saw the glint of my friend's steel mitts creeping up over his fists, like the scaly skin of a crocodile, with razors protruding between the knuckles, and thus armed he took his next opponent by surprise, even though the latter wielded a Katar, the dreadful Rajput triple-bladed knife, in each hand. The complex movements and lightning-quick thrusts and parries fascinated me, as though I were watching dancers in a complex choreographed display instead of a desperate battle to the death."

Captain Nemo, Jr.

Every story has its villains and its heros and Steampunk Holmes is no exception.  Above is the portrait sketch for the son of Captain Nemo who is one of the main characters of the story.  We learn about his lineage, love life, and political orientation and we get to see him and his Rajput warriors in battle!  It's all good fun and in keeping with Jules Verne's original vision.  Is Nemo the villain, a puppet, or is he a hero?  You'll find out when we release the final manuscript by P.C. Martin of 'Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus'.
