Paddlesteamer of Doom by JanBoruta Paddlesteamer of Doom by JanBoruta
Ignorance of laws of physics successfully applied! In the drawing, a flying steam-powered warship with giant paddle wheels. A comission for *TheCoconutGuy's steampunk rpg system *Machina-Obscura . Several more planned, sketched adn ready to be finished. :D

All hail dull lessons, for without them, this drawing would never appear on the face of this earth ;) HB mechanical pencil on A4.

Cheers,
Tom :D

It would make sense if you put it in water because of the giant paddles

I'm going to use this as the logo of my Organization in Star Citizen, but I'll fully credit you and will not use it anywhere else. If you prefer, message me and I'll remove it from the organization's logo right away. Great work on this piece!

Thanks for letting me know. I don't oppose it, could you just link me to the logo / website once it's done? Curious about the outcome :)

I ended up inverting the colors and tinting it blue for effect, but I won't distribute the modified version. In fact, I'll add the art credit right now, since I seem to have forgotten it...

I love the nice bow you've put on her. Very reminiscent of the old "armored cruisers" the U.S. Navy had in the "Great White Fleet" of the late 19th century, when the U.S. Navy became a truly long-ranging, blue-water military for the first time.

You're right about this Yank feeling I wanted to give to that ship, something between the White Fleet's cruisers and battleships (oh boy, those are beatufiul and impressive) and iconic Mississippi paddlesteamers. thanks for faving and commenting :)

Awesome! I am glad I guessed right. I just happened to be looking up any information I could find on the Armored and Protected Cruiser (Predreadnought) era of the late 19th century and noticed the similarities in your design. =) And it's no problem, thank you for sharing that amazing drawing with us.

Pływalność zależałaby od konstrukcji i wielu innych czynników, ale najpewniej dałoby radę :D Dobry projekt!

kadłub zrobiony bylby z drewna obitego stalową blacha + boczne stabilizatory, standardowy silnik parowy umieszczony na srodku, sterowaloby sie toto na zasadzie podobnej jak w czołgu, plus dodatkowy ster klasyczny...

... though I don't get why a Flying warship would need the Giant Paddle wheels, that could be just becuase I don't know the mechanics behind it. xD

I could spend an hour typing up praise for the shading and detail, but suffice to say, it's quite a well-drawn piece of art. Particularly impressive is the smoke billowing from the smokestacks.
