Sky Sentry

It floats very high and observes stuff and occasionally knocks out birds, by accident, obviously.

What program do you use? I've always wanted to emulate the painterly, brush-stroke look, but I suck at it :) I know some people use certain tools like the Paintbrush in Photoshop while others just paint it that way.

Colors are fantastic. I've been in a hot air-balloon, and while this looks more advanced, I have a feeling i'd be even more scared being on the sentry :D

It's all Photoshop. And yes, the fastest and easiest way to achieve the painterly look is to find yourself some custom brushes. Or better yet, create your own. It's a little tricky at first, learning all the variables and settings, but once you do, you'll be able to create brushes on the go for any specific task you want.
There was a video a found a while ago with an in depth explanation of all brush presets and how to effectively use them, but I can't find it now for the life of me. I hope he didn't delete it.
Otherwise, I'll gladly send you a few brushes of my own to get you started.

Oh and the floating thing is supposed to be fairly small, nowhere near the size of a hot air balloon, 8 feet tops.
