Steampunk Airship Pilot by nicholaskole Steampunk Airship Pilot by nicholaskole
This was done for Conceptart.org's Character of the Week: Steampunk Airship Pilot! I freaked out and immediately started designing, I couldn't resist...despite having finals due for my impossible drawing class (as well as painting and illustration). Hope you all like it! I had fun, though I feel I could still push this firther with more time and less stress...ah, well...sometime, maybe!

Yay, steampunk!!!

Oh, my goodness! I love this! Amazing job!
The character design is awesome, and I really like the color scheme you chose - as well as the suggestion of the technology along with the portrait style of illustration.

In general I dislike about 90% of everything in the steampunk subculture and artstyle. BUT I do like your picture, which is why I favorited it. I also Disney's Treasure Planet and Wild Wild West with Will Smith.

Fantastic! Beautiful lines and color, nice restraint in palette. I grew up with Tintin comics and have an appreciation for clear delineation and vivid color. Don't care much for jarring black and white imagery of most American comics. Beauty is in the middle tone!

This blew my mind when I saw it. It looks exactly like a character in my story! His name is James, and his ship is called the Fiasco. I'm so glad I found this picture. It's a beautiful deviation, you should be extremely proud of it. I know I love it!

I just happen to stumble across this pieces of yours. It's absolutely brilliant. I'm a huge fan of steampunk and this image is a great representation of the genre. If this were a poster I'd buy the damn thing.
