Let me try and start at the beginning, long-ago sitting with a bunch of friends started sketching ideas for a new steam punk gun. The basis the Nerf Maverick it had a very interesting look to it, somewhat bigger than life, but still reminiscent of the classic six shooter. And so I began to sketch, adding pipes, gears, pressurized steam cartridges, etched filigree, and even embellished trigger. The scheme was pretty straightforward breasts and copper with dark accents such as the etched black filigree and the leather like handle. here I share with you, the sketch.
After I was happy with my sketches to begin modifying the Nerf gun, first removing the air restrictors as to get more air to the darts. Second whole lot of cosmetic changes to the basic form, such as heavily modifying the barrel area. The trigger guard, and even the trigger itself. I took off most markings that were on the Nerf gunsuch is the name the n-strike logo of Nerf logo and various warnings,basically giving myself a clean slate. After working on it off and on just about a year.trying to find the perfect pieces to my puzzle. Everything from the brass pipes to the copper cartridge holders even pieces for my gauges, most of them came from things I had sitting around. After a long while of trying to get it right. I finally came up with something that I liked. Then asked my friends to help me name it. Finally, was born the Dreameater.
