Steampunk Airship Sketch by Karla-Chan Steampunk Airship Sketch by Karla-Chan
So i have been feeling a lot better and have been able to draw something today! Still a little rough, but i am much better. So i figured i would draw this. I have been meaning to do an airship in a while, but it was being brave enough to so it because i knew it would be a lot of work.

I am quite please with the result.

Now it needs a cool pilot, maybe i will have a play at drawing one for it ^^

Hopefully i will soon be in a better mood for inking and colouring too! Hopefully, it will start bugging me that they aren't finished.

I have also drawn a few pictures i don't actually like too, sadly.

You're welcome. I wish I could be like that. Most of the drawings I have aren't as detailed. Nevertheless, I like the details you put into your drawings. It makes them more enjoyable.

can never have enough gears or bolts. the organic curves give a nice contrast to the metal-ness. i like the parchment paper style backdrop

Thanks i thought like an old explorer map seemed to fit. And thanks i am happy you like it. I do like the rounder ships, i think i have been inspired more by firefly and the final fantasy ships so i think that is why i like the rounder ones.

woah, like crap O__o that's cool! I would stab myse the eye if I had to draw all those dots x__x nice little cross-hatch at the bottom ^^ What's its name?

I like adding details to all my work so i really don't mind ^^ thanks i thought the cross hatching would give it a little depth without fussing too much.

I sadly haven't thought of a name yet, if i had i would have submitted it as the name of the ship. It did cross my mind ^^

Awesome, but it looks more like a space ship than an Air Ship.

Still cool

No the BG map was free stock i found, but i figured since it was a ship having a world map in the BG would suit well. Since a air ship could travel any where in the world really. I added the texture to it though, i found it fairly plain and so made it look older.

And thanks i am happy you think it is very cool, i did try my best on it!

I don't know if i can find it again, i will have to have a look, but they have some really cool stuff in resources and stock, i just check what rules people have before i use them.

I am sure you can find some great stuff, i will see if i can have a quick look though. I nearly did machine parts, i might do that for the colour version! But i did have an idea doe the world map if i drew a captain and doing a version with the captain in front to one side, then the ship in the BG and that as the very back a a BG very similar to this!

But because i don't know how well i will do with the captain i figured i would do this BG now.
