My attempt at a steampunk aerial pirate ship for an online comic project, conceived by the feverish imagination of KrazyKrow
I confess that this design was a bit of a challenge for me, as I'm not the biggest fan of Victorian-era aesthetics. (The iconic firearms are sufficiently eye-catching, but I could never warm up to the cat-house filigree that creeps upon every background element like gold inlaid fungus. )
To keep things interesting, I went for a sleeker looking profile, and incorporated a steam-based reaction control system with "Harrier-jet style"
The strip never materialized unfortunately, but upon reflection, I feel it was a good experience, dabbling outside my technological comfort zone.
