You have such a gift for drawing machinery. And not just the machinery, the mood behind it as well. Amazing.

Wow thats pretty neat, course you know Ive always enjoyed your style art, I never have tried it out before myself, but I often imagine scenes of my own in the style you draw lol.

As to ships, I like battleships alot, its a shame about the Bismark sinking IMO (regardless of what it represented and who owned it) I design alot of my own space ship designs around the theme of actual ocean ships...

Thanks for the link!

pretty awesome, all hand painted?

this one yes, no photos used. PS CS4 with its rotating canvas is amazing, it is liked a dream.
Blackburnart's avatar
yeah once I get a faster computer I'm gonna make the switch to CS4, I tried it once but it was just too laggy to make it worth while, when the only stroke I have trouble with / annoys me is straight up at a slight curve, it always comes out squiggly

impressive that there was no model used =) keep it up
Tell the captin to be on the lookout for Simolian Pirates.
