Re: Cloud Corsairs


When I thought of steampunk, a lot of obvious ideas came to mind, but I wanted to do something a little more off-the-wall, something just randomly awesome and mechanical. So here we are with steampunk pirates, the corsairs of the sky. And yes, the pirate flag is wearing goggles. ;)

Well that took forever and a day, but we're finally up. This was a huge challenge for me to take on. I will post detail pictures later. I need a break. *whew*!

This looks like something that should be on the cover of a Decemberist Album. (That is a compliment!) I love the design of the ship.

I love the soft color scheme and the pointillism!

Nice job!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

Cool design. Is this based on The Edge Chronicles?

Very cool, I like the boat deck and the propulsion system.

Reminds me of the ship in Stardust, but not quite.

Also, I really like it as is, but I think it would be cool to see it in a nighttime or twilight setting, with some stars & darker background.
gmv either way.

Just like Myke Amend's dirigible artwork at http://www.mykeamend.com, which has also been favorably compared to a Decemberists' album cover that never was but might have been. Myke's artwork is in my steampunk nursery.

Thanks! I like the twilight/night setting, too, but I was afraid people would say it was too close to my "inspired by Sailor Moon" entry (http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=29199. I drew this from scratch and I didn't want people saying I just modified my old design. I might make a night version and sub it somewhere else after the 60 days, though.

Glad I took the time to go back thru the entries again and saw this. Missed it the first time around and it's really nice.

Looks really good guys. I love the light airy colors, and the almost diagram like feel the drawing has.

Sorry I didn't comment sooner, and thanks so much for the support.
