Started as a cloud study that I was doing in my down time, but as I kept working on it I realized it could be a lot cooler, so I sci-fi'd it up!

Hope you guys like it! Also, I snuck one of my favorite ships into the painting, I'll let you guys figure out what it is. And thanks to `adonihs for his input on it!

P.S. Please click download to see the full resolution.

This is totally wicked!! The clouds envelope the ship really well, and the view of the city below is astonishing. Lighting is spot-on and the shadows are just right. Stellar!

Oh, and hope you won't mind it if I make this my computer wallpaper. :)

Wow man, this is amazing. Could I ask which program/s you use, and the size of your canvas on average? The level of detail in all your paintings is really impressive.

Haven't seen your stuff in a while, this looks awesome.
Your best wide environment painting ever, you're definitely kicking ass with perspective, brushwork and lighting.
Keep up the sexy work!

Sorry to necropost, but if you want to see amazing clouds then look at the backgrounds while playing halo reach.

My friend and I were blown away as killed through the campaign.

Awesome! It's like both a city and a ship...I wonder how long it'll be before standard ocean-ships reach this size and status :plotting: It was the clouds that grabbed my attention though - I bet Jupiter's atmosphere would be like this 8-)

I thought that the shuttle was just a concept and never put in production. No matter, the image is... well, amazing! Your cloud study really paid off. =) Though to be fair, I feel there should be much more mist in the Carrier's skyscrapers(or that's how they look to me). Though I suppose it would really be a pain to do. I love the logo you put on the ship too, it looks possible to an unbelievable extent.

How much time did this take anyway? From the point you decided to make it cooler?

you have the patience of a saint. I've always wanted to do what you did with the city below but it is far too time consuming. it must have taken months to make this.

Now that's fucking awesome. Love how it's emerging from the cloud. It's all, "Sup, just a flying city. No biggie." Not sure about the intelligence level of this future though. Hiring Planet Express for your delivery needs?
