Local fleet of Arkilian Federation has only 5 ships and these are all old generation warships. As usual the local fleet went to southern desert, a border line between federation and empire and they encounted imperial destroyer squadron.
Firing Ad-Dabaran-class heavy aerial cruiser "Talion" and sinking light cruiser ”Felixen” rough drawing is here
Wow, I immediately thought: Last Exile! Glad to see that I'm not the only one refering to it in the comments. I'm never tired of watching your works. I quite like aerial battleships myself but I'm more of a (lame) 3d guy, do you model your ships before you draw them, or do you draw them directly ?
Thanks. To tell the truth I never studied drawing in my life. All things I did is just enjoy drawing through my life. I read encyclopedia, watch movies, search picture on google, see someone's drawing, go historical place and visit another countries.... these massive experiences exploded on my hobby, drawing. I am not art student so I can't give you critical advice but I am sure that important thing is enjoy and keep drawing!
OK, I will write some comment about your art when I got time! Like I said I enjoy seeing people's art, no problem.
i forgot to comment back when i faved [i was in a mental funk at the time] but i must say that i REALLY like these designs!!!! i always love it when engine powered airships have a large bulky design, which you captured exelently here!!!!! i'd love to see more thick airships!!
...... french predreadnoughts are amazing ...... ~faved~
Yeah. Traditionally the term 'a line of battle' from the age of sail, that's where the term battleship in English (and I think other European languages?) comes from. A ship of the line of battle. Although these are cruisers so what do I know
Seems like the Ad-Dabaran-class' is used for aerial bombardment of ground targets. The 'Talion' has nearly as many guns (and big ones) pointing down as she does pointing outwards. That seems like a pretty logical use for a heavy cruiser that is airborne.
