airship by forkfighter airship by forkfighter
Oh man, finishing this project was uncounteable hours of hard work... I had a picture on my mind with an airship and thought, well, shouldn't be too hard... I know better now :)
But I like it. I think I finally managed to make the different surfaces really look different (metal, wood, stone, glass). After finishing the airship itself, I started creating a background which should kind of put some movement in the picture. To underline this effect I did some lining with my WACOM after having done the digital part of the background. I tried to put an abstract element to it, which - IMHO - did work quite well.

Please take a full view, I created the picture in DinA3...

Hope you like it :)... Enjoy!

in my opinion, the cables holding up the cabin thing and the turbine seem insufficient to support all that mass

nice job on the linework

Definitely right. I didn't know how the sketch would turn out, and it's always easier to make the cables look more thick than to erase the ballpoint-pen on some parts looking too thick. Well, I didn't think of realism creating this, to be honest :)

Thx for commenting :)

I spent whole days on the details. I don't know, sometimes I just want to make my pictures look way more detailed. I just start sketching something with my pencil and while I put some contrasts to it by shading with my ball point-pen I am able to create different looking surfaces and add a lot of creatures and stuff to it. The airship looked quite simple in the beginning, but it turned out to have a much more complex structure.
Nice 2 hear u like it :) Thx a lot for faving!

This is the weirdest and coolest mechanism I've seen and I also love the backround. Keep it up... or else...
