Redoutable's Last Stand by JanBoruta Redoutable's Last Stand by JanBoruta
With the invention of steam-powered antigravitational engines, warfare has reached a completely new level! Naval battles could lift themselves to the skies and resolve the eternal quarrels of warring nations... The Franco-Prussian War of 1870 above Alsace and Lorraine raged on, miles above fierce battles involving thousands of infantry soldiers...

The Redoutable, pride of Napoleon III's navy, was sent to prevent the Kaiserliche Luftmarine from it"s flight to Paris, after laying waste Metz and Strasbourg. However, it was destroyed in a skirmish against the Prussian behemoth, Friedrich der Grosse...

Hard to believe, I started it almost two years ago, in late 2008. I managed to finish it a month ago. HB and @B pencils on A4 paper.

Regards,
Tom :)

Great picture, although I find it somewhat unlikely that France's massive navy would lose to that of Germany. Large shipyards do not appear overnight, you know.

Hehe, airships are always so cool, aren't they? :D It's always a fun subject to draw. And I like how you did them, they have quite stylized, almost kind of quirky feel to them. The only thing I seem to miss a bit are some stronger values. The tones seem to be mostly in the mid-range.
But otherwise, nice work! :nod:

This is really really excellent work. I love your pencil strokes in the sky, and you can feel how heavy those bloody machines would be.

The humidity level around these things must be amazing lol. But that is really cool. Love the steampunk look on these classic WWI vessels.
