Art deco- hell style. When you're in hades, you need to get from torture site to torture site as quick as possible. Likely it's got a mass transit system.

This engine is loosely based on the Commodore Vanderbilt, the first locomotive to receive aerodynamic cladding and one of the two trains to provide service from NYC to Chicago. Gorgeous train.

Thanks! I like the blimp one this week too... I think I'm gonna buy a shirt myself. There are a lot of goodies.

This is way too busy to me. What's the thing at the top? It looks like a separate design just thrown in there. I would have just done the train and not the little city scape and the thing at the top.

Unquestionably your best work in a long time. Maybe a little boxy and flat at the bottom, but overall quite solid.

The style in this reminds me of the architecture in Grim Fandango...

Exactly what I was thinking. The design isn't too bad but it looks like the thing at the top was just added to take up space - and therefore feels out of place.

The top was to give it a definite "hellish" feel by using an deco-style radiation and a winged skull (rounded). Tried to make it part of the "skyline" but it blended in too much since there are limited colors in this design.
