Yet another incredibly original title. Heh. Sorry, I really suck at naming my pics.

Flying ships. They've been done before, I know. But here's another version of one.

As usual, drawn and colored completely in Photoshop. No references. (Although I probably should have used some, since I don't think I got the goggles right. Can't...draw...glass....ugh.) Took about 12 hours total.

EDIT: I don't know if pics show up again on watch lists when they've been edited. If so, sorry about that! I'm going to try to make a print of this. As usual, I don't expect anyone to actually buy one, but erm, my mom wants a copy. (Heh heh). :)

This is completely gorgeous. The goggles, while not conventional by steampunk standards (if there are any), are beautifully rendered. I love the brass buttons on the coat, the stitching on the cowl... Yeah, amazing all around.

I saw this pic a few years back on the Gaia area arena. Who would have thought I would ever get to be in a thread with the person who does such amazing artworks. ~_~You don't know me well. I am a friend or F4ever. I just wanted to leave a comment.

Actually, no, I haven't. Are there airships in it? If so, I'd be interested.

No airships-at least, not in the general sense. There are flying ships, though. If you like airships as in massive floating bubble of floating gas, try Airborn by Kenneth Oppel.

I really like this piece, hakubaikou. The expression of that delicate face is wistful and determined in perfect harmony and I really love that faded stormy background. I think the goggles are actually quite nice, the bluish tint to the glass fits with the rest of the piece. Probably cuts down on glare as well. There should be more airships on deviantart, in my humble opinion. Keep doing them. Please?

I feel it's the job of the audience to make sure the artist doesn't get too distracted by the little stuff. :) Besides, your titles make it really easy to remember what your picture is without even thinking about it! Thanks for sharing your beautiful art!

very good. but for some reason it doesn't look quite finished to me.... i think because all the lines are so sharp, everything stands out equally.
smoothing some of that over, especially in the background, might help bring it together. just a suggestion.

:iconhakubaikou:
hakubaikou Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2006
Thanks for the critique. And I agree. A lot of the elements (BG and foreground) are too sharp. The rungs on the ladder stick out in particular, IMO. Wish I'd done a more thorough job of it when I did this pic. I think I've done a little better with that in my later pics though.

I don't edit art once I've signed my name on it. (Keeps me from fixing and tweaking things forever and never getting anything done.) But thanks so much for the advice. I'll definitely keep it in mind.
