There’s volumes to write about the clouds and lighting in this piece alone, but the thing that really caught my eye was the mechanics of the airship itself. The balloon strapped to the shipped by what would otherwise be sails is a neat touch.
There’s a sense of adventure in this piece. The crew looks to be in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by puffy clouds and flocks of gulls. You can almost see the crew walking the deck, checking knots and rigs making sure they won’t fall from the sky in their sleep. A slow violin plays from beside the helm as the ship continues their adventure.
The artist can be found at http://andrework.deviantart.com/ though the piece is now longer available. Tremendous talent, go check it out.
