Finally!!! My first image depicting a flying ship!

Although, I must confess it's more like a small floating boat... oh well, I guess the concept is pretty much the same. ^^

Anyway, I hope you like it!

Hey, boats and ships are the same thing sky or water! You did GREAT on the perspectives, too, in this picture. I'm always horrible trying to grasp that concept. T-T

Oh! I thought "boat" was used only to refer to small vessels and "ship" to large ones, we make that distinction in Spanish, so I just assumed it was the same in English... so, thanks for pointing that out, I'll fix it later.

In any case, I'm glad you like the image, thanks for leaving a comment!! ^^

Impresionante, cuanto tiempo llevas dibujando estos paisajes? :3

Pues, es un poco difícil de precisar... esto es, imagino que al igual que todos los que hacemos esto, dibujar es algo que he hecho toda la vida, pero siendo ya más específico, a la pintura en digital empecé a dedicarme hace más o menos un año... ^^

Si, bueno, de hecho ya hace más o menos año que tengo el título... lo cierto es que en la escuela a la que iba no les gustaba mucho el estilo en el que trabajo ahora, eran más partidarios del arte contemporáneo y otras manifestaciones... menos académicas. Por esa razón empecé a trabajar en digital hace más o menos un año... es decir, cuando termine el curso de ilustración...

En fin, seguro a más de uno le sorprendería ver lo que hacía antes ^^

I love this! Just, immensely love this! the concept, the detail and skill are fantastic!

Yeah, I didn't realize it was flying till i read the description. It seems, to me, that it is flying by creating a surface on which to float.

Well, you're certainly right! I didn't want to go with the helium ballon concept, not because I don't like it, I love steampunk, so I love zeppelin-like airships. But that's precisely the point, since I like the genre/style, I should try an slightly different approach...

Anyway, I'm happy that you like it! Thanks for leaving a comment!!! ^^

I'm glad you like it! I really like this type of fusions as well, in my opinion, is the contrast between distant narrative elements what makes for interesting tales!!!

Anyway, thank you very much for leaving a comment!!! ^^

Well, I'm happy to hear that!!! This picture belongs to a world I'm developing, which in essence has a steampunk background; but also has a strong component of magic and other traits typically associated to medieval fantasy...

Anyway, thank you very much for leaving a comment!!! ^^

Now that you mentioned it, it's true it bears some resemblance with some WOW landscapes... I'm guessing it may be due to the bright colors and the heavy use of glowing, which is pretty common in Blizzard's art...

Anyway, thanks for leaving a comment Lukas! Your support is really appreciated!! :D

Podría comentar mil cosas a favor de la imagen, pero no lo voy a hacer porque me enrollaría demasiado, lo que si quiero remarcar es que me encantan las "inscripciones" o "figuras" o "no sé como llamarlo", que hay en el edificio. Y esto es solo un pequeño detalle porque hay muchas más cosas que me gustan.
Espero poder ver más cosas tuyas

Estamos de acuerdo respecto de las esferas en el edificio, probablemente es uno de los detalles que más se amoldan a la visión original que me había planteado de esta imagen... diría que junto con el bote son las partes con las que más satisfecho me encuentro...

Muchas gracias por tu comentario!!! Hasta pronto!!! ^^
