Armed aerial steamship Cygnet by Waffle0708 Armed aerial steamship Cygnet by Waffle0708
drawing of a ship for xelosuchiha's website! :)
This ship does not belong to Flight Glide Project, thus no relationship between my other airships.

I added colors by my decision, waiting for his opinion for that. Background is not decided, i need to ask about it too.
anyway the design itself is completed!

Very interesting design!  I personally love the prow.  It looks like one of the classical trireme vessels of Admiral Themistocles' Athenian Navy (as well as the lettering for her name, which distantly resemble ancient Greek characters).  Well done!

Your designs are great, especially of the airships. The gritty textures and worn look on this one work well with the proud ornaments and flags.
This is a bit unrelated, but is the Flight Glide Project of your other works just a personal one, or is it published anywhere? I'm curious about it. :)

Thanks for your comment, I am glad you tasted my drawing!
Well, I will tell you just simply. I am working on 3 things.
1, Flight Glide Project, my personal one and I own&manage the project. It is an art but also electric novel (in Japanese) written by a writer. He write a story based on my drawing and i sometimes give him a drawing for his story.
2, 30min anime project, that I am belonging as a "mecha-designer", managed by other university student in Tokyo and it will be published in this July.
3, like this picture, I draw a picture for someone's request

sorry for long reply, I often get same question so I think I need to explain it on my page. :)
Cheers!

dude, this is a very well designed airship. i also really like your color choices and textures to everything. the dilapidated look is something i really like when it comes to machines like this. everything here works just flawlessly in terms of what i like to see in artwork of this genre/theme. thanks!!! ~faved~

I believe we can share same attitude for the art, especially these flying airships.
Plz check rest of my art when you have time, you will like it! :)

Nice, I like the shape. It pulls off the "flying ship" paradigm much better than most I've seen. :thumbsup:

in old days, people usually add decorations on weapons. I like them.

Yeah I know. Beck then, most weapons were one-off rather than mass produced, so of course people tended to take a lot more care of them than they do now. It's the same reason people believed them to have souls and gave them names.

Well said!! AGREE!! This is what I wanted to say!! lol
I tried but couldin't find nice way to explain. Less produced so they care a lot so people decolate, name, put a soul on them....

Other times, other practices - hand crafted weapons might have a of of soul, but you can't equip an army of two million soldiers, and that's how Stalin's troops bulldozed across half of Europe in the end.
I mean, sure, the German tanks were truly marvels of technology, but that doesn't help much when you're up to your armpits in shodilly made, cheap, weak, but otherwise reliable t34s...

I found a book about ships at host family's house and I liked Greek ships, also beautiful patterns of Maori art too! :)
It was a great discovery that just adding ethnic art can change whole impression.

yes I agree, I want a model of this ship ^^

Beautiful ship!. That´s the essence of what an air dreadnought should be. One question, why not one or two turrets in the deck below?

Thank you for your comment!
To response to your question, I always draw a aerial ship as a "weapon" but this time I wanted to create a ship like a artifact.
So I prioritized design rather than practicability. :) Also this ship is escort ship so it does not need to equip many guns.

........:wow: 格好良い ! Like the paint scheme especially. I can imagine a whole fleet of airships in the same colors.

IMO background palette should compliment ship colors for higher contrast. Orange and pinks maybe. Unless the commissioner has their own desires.

" I can imagine a whole fleet of airships in the same colors. "
Good to hear so!! I needed to create new thing but it seems like painting on the body has enough power to let people imagine so!

I have same idea too, however due to the point of view, probably I cannnot draw the sky, I will have to draw clouds with reflection.

Good point! :doh: Wasn't thinking.

I like the sleekness of the design. Seems fast and well armed. Like a cruiser or destroyer?

I did not considered about the type of ship.
It is, so to speak, escort ship! :D
If I became air pirate, probably I would get on this ship.
