Are you sure this station isn't another way to Rapture.

I don't think you need me to tell you how beautiful this is. My only thought is I wish it had more colors to it but it looks great.

I think the design of the building itself is very impressive, it's an interesting concept and the modeling is really well done. A lot of smooth curves that mesh seamlessly into flat surfaces and corners, it's clear there's a lot of details in the building. I'm not sure how much of the environment you did but it also looks well done. I don't have much critique to give, other than I think the building and ships could use some color besides the bronze look it all has... but on the other hand it gives it a favorable sepia-toned, dark theme. Bravo.

Oh duh! Ignore my comment that it needed more texture variety then, I was thinking of it in the context of a finished scene. Still I should've noticed that it was for the Queen of the Rocketmen challenge--it really suits the style in that sense. Reminds me of rocketeer :)

Those other images you linked to really show the amount of detail in that building, it does it more justice. There's even more finite details that aren't as clear in these renders.

Thanks I loved designing the building. I did everything you see in the picture except for the base model of the airship that was done by Giorgio Luciano and it was a modeling challenge so textures and colors where done for the final beauty render. I wanted to keep it simple since the voting they would not count textures. Here is some progression shots of the piece plus wires [link] Original building sketch I did [link]
