As always tell me if there are any spelling mistakes
Drawing took a few hours and the animatic took just as much. Russell helped export it correctly.
i want to look at the canisters in mosters inc. they collect screams like fuel and it reminded me of large battery's
the canisters can be used as rechargeable personal battery's. For example, steampunk vehicles, machinery would take a battery that would be plugged in fully but something like a flash light would have a long cored protruding from the canister that is strapped to a persons back.

We can also find early Steampunk in the works of Jules Verne (a French author who helped pioneer the science-fiction genre) Some of his best known novels are A Journey to the Centre of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1869–1870) and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873)
‘20 thousand leagues under the sea’ features The Nautilus, a submarine. This was something that really hadn’t been technologically explored before, and having the vessel disguised as a monster just made the idea even more intimidating.
There are a many different versions of ‘20 thousand leagues’, with just as many interpretations of the Nautilus and its captain, Nemo. The Description of the submarine Verne envisioned is given to us in the novel by Nemo himself:
“Here, M. Aronnax, are the several dimensions of the boat you are in. It is an elongated cylinder with conical ends. It is very like a cigar in shape, a shape already adopted in London in several constructions of the same sort. The length of this cylinder, from stem to stern, is exactly 70 meters, and its maximum breadth is eight meters. It is not built on a ratio of ten to one like your long-voyage steamers, but its lines are sufficiently long, and its curves prolonged enough, to allow the water to slide off easily, and oppose no obstacle to its passage. These two dimensions enable you to obtain by a simple calculation the surface and cubic contents of the Nautilus. Its area measures 1011.45 square meters; and its contents 1,500.2 cubic meters; that is to say, when completely immersed it displaces 1500.2 cubic meters of water, or 1500.2 metric tons.”
With such a clear description of how the Nautilus looks and works it’s still interesting to see other peoples takes on it. Some one of my favorite versions has to be the Nautilus from ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ both the book and the movie version.
I don’t recommend reading the novel but the design for the Nautilus is easily more interesting then the movies incorporating a giant working squid over the body.
