Air houseboats astride whales wearing leather goggles. If this isn't a steampunk fantacist's dream, I have no idea what is.
This is otherworldly beyond belief, and I love it that way. Does the near whale have potholes in its body? I'm... Partly curious as to how that would work. The rest of the whale looks organic, so I wonder how those could be built into a live whale's body.
Then again, this is a whale flying through the air that can support an enormous building on its back, so maybe this piece isn't the most open for questioning.
Fantastic! I recommend looking up Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan triliogy. Its for chidlren yes, but the world he pitches is a worthy one, the artist Keith Thompson is worth looking at as well. Lovely picture, I love your more prehistoric whale in the back, don't see many of those! I'd love to see the evolution on this world, the whales of past and future FLYING?!?!? *gasp* It would be a grand dream XD!
This is absolutely gorgeous. I can't take my eyes off of it. I love how the lights in the buildings are coming through in what seems to be a very foggy atmosphere. And the tiiiiiny little people. What's really bugging me though is that it seems so familiar to me, and I can't place why. It's driving me crazy. D:
